Open services.msc from run window and then find avgwdsvc.exe. right click and select properties then check the disabled checkbox. Apply and get out of services.msc. now try to install the new version of avg.

I ran into this problem due to a serious virus infection prior to installing AVG. While the computer was infected I tried installing AVG at which time the virus prevented proper installation. After removal of the virus with various tools, I attempted installing AVG again which failed again.

All I had to do is unintall the previous failed installation, restart the computer and install again.

AVG installed and now works fine on the system.

Hope this helps.

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.

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.
