    My Security Centre is wrongly reporting that dual antivirus programs are
    installed and switched OFF - PC-cillin (which WAS installed) & AVG (which IS
    installed and switched ON).

    How do I correct this? (I have filed a bug report)

    Found the exact same problem here. I had to manually edit the registry to
    remove the entry for the non existant antivirus program.

    Hmm I searched the registry for PC-cillin and Trend Micro. I thought I'd
    deleted everything. Better go look again.

    I have the same issue. I've installed AVG and then uninstalled it due
    incompatibility problems with RC1 and then installed TrendMicro PCCillin, but
    now Security Center says I've 2 antivirus: AVG and PC Cillin. How remove AVG
    from the Security Center?

    In the end I reformatted the partition and did a new clean install

    thanks, I have the same problem. I deleted the apparent program entries in
    the registry but it still shows up. Any other entries that I should look
    for? thanks

    I did this but after a driver "crash" security centre started reporting
    incorrectly again!
