I ran avgremover as above, but I also had to delete the directory  C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\avg8\Log That sorted it for me.

I received action failed for avgwdsvc.exe when trying to install AVG internet security. How do I fix this problem?


Uninstall and then Re-install as Administrator, The "Service" or program that starts, and stays on all during the session, isn't "Starting" either due to privileges, or some error. You could first try to enable the service, START>>RUN>>services.msc enter Look in the list that comes up for that service, avgwdsvc, if there, Enable it, and set to Automatic. But it will probably need reinstalling as Admin.

Go with bitdefender or kaspersky this will work well.

It will help you to remove the anti virus ..


Demo version also works fine.

Desktop has serious problems with no antivirus program installed. Am trying to install AVG free 8.0, and keep getting Error: Action failed for file avgwdsvc.exe: starting service... Error 0x800736b1...


Try avast av go to avast.com and download the free version. It's very good. You need to sign up with an email address they will send you a key to copy and paste and it will be good for 14 months then you will need a new key. I've used it for years for free.

Trying to install avg free, but get 1 error. Action failed for file avgmfx86 sys starting service Error number 0x80070002


You may be infected by the virus Autoit.exe. Have your computer scanned with another antivirus before installing AVG. AVG Free (updated that is) is effective if already installed before the virus attacked. You may download and try a trojan cleaner dedicated for this purpose here.

I bought a new HP 2133 mini note pc which has Windows Vista on it. I have been trying to download the avgfree 8.0 antivirus program. It keeps telling me that one error is occuring. It says Action failed...


Try this link to download it...

http://free.avg.com/ww.download?prd=afe

This maybe the same link you have already tried. If it is, just do a google search for AVG free, it's available from several other places.


You also need to download a patch for Vista and AVG to work together, if you go to this link ...

http://www.avg.co.uk/uk.faq.num-1066#faq_1066

You can download the patch from microsoft via AVG website, you need to select FAQ number 1177 then choose the download according to your OS ie 32bit or 64bit.

Hope this helps.

Action failed for file avgmfx86.sys:starting service error 0x80070002


Sorry for the multiple posts in a single day...

I have solved this issue!!! (In my case anyhow)

WARNING: What I am posting here can cause SERIOUS problems with your computer if you do not know what you are doing. If you doubt yourself, then DO NOT DO THIS.

Using information I found at: http://www.fixya.com/support/t567993-local_machine_installation_failed

Heres what I did:
1) I downloaded the latest version of RegSeeker (Link provided in the other fixya post referenced above).

2) I ONLY did a "Find in Registry". Typed "AVG" and did a search. (I searched for Grissoft as well, but it found nothing)

3) With the list of registry entries I then at the bottom, selected all using the "Select" link(with a green checkmark next to it.)

4) Using the "Action" Link (Also at the bottom) I deleted all.

5) Go to "C:\Program Files" and delete the "AVG" Folder.

6) Reboot machine

7) Start fresh install of AVG 8.0

8) Perform updates to AVG 8.0

AGAIN... This worked for me. IT MAY NOT WORK FOR YOU.
Changes to your registry by ANY means should NOT be done by those not familiar with operating systems.

For what it's worth.
