    When you uninstalled AVG did you use the AVG uninstall or did you use Start>Control Panel>Add or Remove Programs? If you didn't use AVG's uninstall, I would download it again and then uninstall it with their own uninstall menu item. Also...reboot your computer after you uninstall.

Im unable to install..it says installation failed due to error...wht should i do?


Get rid of Norton

SPEAKING WITH MY EXPERIENCE: Either try Security Essentials from Microsoft OR Avast. There’s free software out there to try.

Helpful Free Software below Read On.

FREE SPYWARE
Download Spybot Search & Destroy. Restart computer, then run Spybot to see what spyware comes up, AND DELET IT.

FYI---Virus Protection-- 2 programs of virus protection will conflict with each other and will actually cancel out the protection. SO just download one.

Running Spybot Search & Destroy with EITHER Avast or Avg (great Free virus protection programs ) will keep a computer in good working condition. FREE

HERE ARE SOME LINKS, THAT WOULD BE BETTER:

Avira AntiVir
http://www.free-av.com/

NEW *****Somthing new FROM MICROSOFT.*** 2009 ---Security Essentials
http://www.microsoft.com

Pop up Blocker ** free******
www.panicware.com


*****Spybot - Search & Destroy 1.5.2 ****
FREE SPYWARE
http://www.download.com/Spybot-Search-De…

****Avast ***FREE ANTI VIRUS PROGRAM

****AVG ****FREE SPYWARE PROGRAM
http://www.free.avg.com

**Ccleaner*** FREE
http://www.download.com/3120-20_4.html?q…

***Malware**** FREE
http://www.malwarebytes.org/.

$ *** KASPERSKY ***
http://www.kaspersky.com

There are alot of $ anti-virus and Internet security programs out there,

ie: Norton, McAfee, Panda, Bitdefender. If you would like to pay $ then get ***Kaspersky***-- 2010 ,

I feel that is the best for your money.

REMEMBER TO KEEP UP THE DAILY MAINTENANCE ON ALL OF YOUR COMPUTERS.!

Good Luck. If you think this is good information, , please rate me.
Thanks :0)

Removal of AVG8


Try bootin to safe mode by pressing F8 on turning on the system then try to uninstall by going into the control panel [Programs(vista)/Add or Remove Programs(XP)]

By doing this you will be able to uninstall the AVG anti virus.
Then restart and the system will boot in normal mode then install Kaspersky. Never have 2 anti virus in a system. Just a word of caution.
Cheers !

My AVG is conflicting with my installing Kaspersky.


you might not have uninstalled AVG .instead you could have deleted the AVG folder.
AVg components are still there in the registry.if you didnt uninstall it ,install AVG once more and uninstall it manually.
if its not working remove AVG components from registry
here are the instrucions:
To remove the AVG registry entries, open Registry Editor (Start-> Run-> Regedit). In the registry editor, navigate to the entries mentioned below,

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\AVG7Uninstall

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\AVG6INSTALL

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\AVG8Uninstall

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\AVG\Avg8

Right click on these entries and then delete them. If you are not comfortable about deleting registry entries, you can use a free registry cleaner. If you are using a 64 bit machine, then these are the entries to be removed.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\AVG7Uninstall

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\AVG6INSTALL

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\AVG8Uninstall

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\AVG\Avg8


Once these entries are removed, Kaspersky installation will be completed normally. Alternatively you can also use the AVG cleaner or Kaspersky removal tool for AVG8.

Kaspersky over AVG8


Even though you uninstalled AVG from the computer (I'm guessing using Add/Remove Programs), there is probabky some files and possibly a quarantine folder that is still on the computer that was not removed which is making Kaspersky think that AVG is still on the computer.

You can download and run an AVG Remover Tool from here: http://www.avg.com/download-tools

Also check C:\Program Files folder for an AVG folder, and even do a Windows search for AVG and remove the folders left behind.

And if you are comfortable going into the registry, you can look in there for left over AVG keys, but hopefully the AVG Remover Tool will take care of it all for you.

Unable to install AVG 8 free


Strippy had asked you a right question. You may be trying to install AVG when you have already one antivirus program running. OR you had once installed AVG sometimes in the past, but uninstallation was not properly done. Hence it is showing registry key error.

1. If you are running any anitvirus prog now, first uninstall it. Then restart the machine.

2. Now you try install AVG. it should install. if not, try the following

Go to system restore and create restore point for safety.

go to run and type regedit and then enter

Press cntrl + F for finding earlier registry keys of AVG. Try to find out all old registry keys amd delete them all.

Restart the machine. Its DONE.

Cannot uninstall avg 8 completely


I have had AVG for a long time and it beats any antivirus i have ever had. but if you really want to remove it, use the add/remove programs, or go to the star menu, programs, AVG folder and select the UN-installer. once removed, then try again to install the new one. Make sure to select ( remove Virus Vault ) in the option when un-installing AVG.

If your still getting issues, go into C: and delete any remaing AVG system folders that may be left behind.

Good luck

Regarding installation of kaspersky


Hi,

It means there are some applications that were not compatible.

It will list the incompatible softwares when after you select to install.

Uninstall them properly.

You have to remove using proper uninstallation tool.

Like even deleting the traces from the registry.

After this you wont be having any problems.

Good Luck.

Live, Love, Laugh.
