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.

Tip

How to troubleshoot a system that will not boot to the hard drive.


  1. Ensure that there is no diskette in the A: drive if system is equipped with a 1.44 Floppy Diskette Drive. If a disk in the drive, remove it and reboot.
  2. Boot to the BIOS, reset defaults, reboot
  3. If system still will not boot to the hard drive, power off, disconnect all peripheral items (Printer, scanner, external drives and USB drives) reboot.
  4. At this point, boot to Diagnostics partition, or CD (F12 menu on some systems, Some HP systems have Hard drive diags in BIOS, Fn+Power for Dell Portables, CTRL+ALT+D for some Dell Desktops) If the hard drive fails diagnostics, replace the hard drive. If the drive passes diagnostics, it is not a guarantee the drive is good, just no fault was detected.
  5. If the drive passes diags, then see if you can boot to a Windows CD/DVD. If you can't, either remove, turn off in BIOS or disconnect the hard drive, and see if you can boot to the Windows Media. If you can with the HDD disabled/removed/disconnected, again, replace the HDD.
  6. If you can boot to the Windows Media, then go to Recovery Console in XP and run CHKDSK /R (Vista or Windows 7, run the repair my computer option off the menu, this may take multiple passes to fix) If this fails to resolve, then boot back to recovery console and run BOOTCFG /REBUILD (This is already done in Vista/7 in the repair tool)
  7. If that fails, you will most likely be reinstalling Windows. If the Windows install crashes during a file copy, try RAM modules one at a time (Windows install is still the best RAM test we have) If the Windows install still crashes, replace the Hard Drive.

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

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.

Initializing error :registry value is not of binary type


Sorry to here about your problems with AVG, generally Griftsoft (AVG) is a grate program, that is until recently.
I have run AVG for years, until they get bossy and BUSH you to Buy their Program. At which time, I decided to remove them and go elsewhere! But that's me, and others have their own opium.
1st. What operating system are you using.? XP or VISTA
2nd. Have you tried to un-install AVG ?
3rd. If the program is running, on the bottom right of screen, you should see the colored box (red. blue, green and yellow) Right click on it and delete.
4th. Next go to control panel and add or remove programs
5th. Find AVG anti-virus and remove.
6th. If you are running VISTA you may want to find your start-up folder and remove from that.
If all the above fails, drop me a email and I will explain removal using MSCONFIG.

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.

Gateway ML6732 Crashed ...NEED help


Seems you have OS (first guess) problem so if you have recovery disk then insert it in DVD/CD driver and reboot your laptop.
And follow the instructions appeared on sreen and when you reach installation mode choose repair one if you wanna repair OS otherwise choose fresh Installation.
once you are done you should be good to go and if you have Hardware problems then your system will show the bugs on screen during installation period.
oh! if you have any external drives (Thumb drive, Ipod) plugged in then remove before you start above procedure because due to external drives also it happens if you dont have any plugged in external drives then follow the above procedure.
Thank you and post back if any thing changes.

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.

MY HP pavilion zt 1000 series just crashed


When reinstalling XP, install in a directory other than WINDOWS. Your My Documents will be safe, unless you have already overwritten it. Other data should be safe.DO NOT FORMAT THE DISK as the installation suggests.
