AVG Free install fails

My system recently crashed.... When I rebooted, I was unable to access AVG 7.5.... My attempts to repair it with avg75free_516a1225.exe failed, so I uninstalled it and tried to re-install it.... But each time I've tried results in an "Installation Failed" dialog box which suggests that I contact if the problem persists.... When I click on "Details," I get this message:
Error: Action failed for file avgamsvr.exe: starting service....
%1 is not a valid Win32 application. (193)....

So I downloaded Avg Free Edition 8.0 and tried installing that only to get the following messages after the installation failed: "Error: Action failed for avgernc.exe starting service.... Error 0x800700c1"
"Warning: Action failed for director Cfg; removing directory....
Error 0x80070091"
"Warning: Action failed for director Log; removing directory....
Error 0x80070091"
"Warning: Action failed for director avg8; removing directory....
Error 0x80070091"
"Warning: Action failed for director AVG8; removing directory....
Error 0x80070091"
"Warning: Action failed for director AVG; removing directory....
Error 0x80070091"

Any help with resolving these issues would be appreciated

I use AVG Free Edition because I'm on a very limited Social Security income.... Buying anti-virus software wouldz be a real hardship on me....

I have the same problem as Guest Feb. 9, 2009. After installation I get this message:

Local machine: installed successfully
Installation:
Warning: Action failed for file avgmfx86.sys: stopping service....
Service AvgMfx86 failed to progress during stopping at checpoint 0 (wait hint 10000 ms) in 90013 ms.

I also wonder, is AVG still working okay? What to do about message?

I had similar problems with AVG, and switched to AVAST home edition (free). www.download.com has avast home and all you have to do is supply them with your email address so they can send you the yearly registration key. Avast handles maleware as well as virus protection. Avast automatically updates and supplies the customer with quality maleware / virus protection at no cost to the consumer. No I do not work for Avast. I'm a medically retired technician. Download the program and install it, the problem with AVG goes away! The real problem I believe has something to do with the SP 1, 2. 3, (or all of them) and it stops AVG from reinstalling. Note the Avast home is free for home use, not business use. They do have a professional program that costs you to use, just like AVG.

Hey i've been having the exact same problems with avg listed on the board, and i've found no solutions. EVERY TIME i attempt to install avg free version (since about 2 years ago), the installation would...


Hi:
This is a common problem on the AVG site. When this happens, either try to download the program from the link that directly downloads from the AVG site, or go to the CNET site and download it there. If that fails, DOWN load and save the AVG program, go off line, and install it that way. Usually one of these work arounds will get you the free AVG

Will not start up and blue screen pops up with fatal system error


try booting into safe mode
tap the F8 key during boot up and select safe mode,
attempt a scan disk, virus scan (avg works in safe mode)
then reboot, if it works, fine no problem sometimes windows has a hiccup during booting,
otherwise if you have recently installed anything (including drivers) try removing them in safe mode and booting back to normal windows.

if all else fails windows reinsallation may be required

Cannot uninstall AntiVirus or dowload from the internet


You might try restoring the system to a previous date. If you've done that and you still get the AVG error do a manual uninstall by deleting the program from your local hard drive (C:) then go into the registry using regedit(be careful doing this if you dont comfortable, then by all means do not attempt this step, you could possibly corrupt your operating system)type regedit in the "run" bar of the start menu . once opened search for AVG delete all of these strings, reboot and reinstall AVG. If this doesnt work we can go from there but this will most likley work.

Unable to install avg8 free in windows 2000 prof sp-4


Hi,
Instead of installing AVG free, download & install Avira Antivir Personal Free. It is better compared to AVG in terms of virus detection 7 also very light on the system.

Update an antivirus


Sometimes AVG is unable to update due to their servers being updated. Verify that you can go to free.avg.com. If you can go there and your program still refuses to update, re download a new installation package, run it, and do a repair installation on AVG. That should fix the issue. If it doesn't, uninstall AVG completely and then reinstall after you reboot 2x.

Uninstall of software


Sounds like you did not do things in the correct order or you did not reboot between the AVG uninstall and the Kapersky install, so that it looked like AVG was still loaded.

Since Kapersky is not installed, the best way to proceed is to start from a fresh reboot, download and re-install the AVG free edition to get the registry entries corrected. Don't bother with updates as it is coming back out again. Reboot and uninstall AVG. Reboot again and verify AVG is gone before attempting to install the Kapersky.

AVG free can be downloaded from free.grisoft.com assuming you mean the 8.0 version, not 7.5, otherwise try downloading from www.filehippo.com and select the older version.

Try starting up the computer in safe mode, by pressing F8 at a certain point on startup.
If it starts in safe mode do system restore.
If you cannot even start in safe mode you will probably need to reinstall windows, you can also try a system recovery, but this does not always work.
If you have a boot disk like ultimate boot cd (you can download some from torrent) you can start system restore, or repair system using the boot disk.
Easiest way to proceed is probably reinstalling system.
