Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook
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....
"Warning: Action failed for director Log; removing directory....
"Warning: Action failed for director avg8; removing directory....
"Warning: Action failed for director AVG8; removing directory....
"Warning: Action failed for director AVG; removing directory....
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
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?

Install AVG8.0, it should fix your problem

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.
