Hi,
Personally i wouldn't use Avast if they payed me!!!!!
Go here and download Spybot search & destroy >>>>>>>

You will need an active internet connection to install the program, when installed scan your computer.
Another good free antivirus software is AVG Free 8.5 >>>>>>>



http://free.avg.com/download-avg-anti-virus-free-edition



Or Antvir Free >>>>>>>>>>

Try all this software to scan for any possible infections, malware or spyware.


Good luck

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.

Unable to install AVG 8 free


Strippy had asked you a right question. You may be trying to install AVG when you have already one antivirus program running. OR you had once installed AVG sometimes in the past, but uninstallation was not properly done. Hence it is showing registry key error.

1. If you are running any anitvirus prog now, first uninstall it. Then restart the machine.

2. Now you try install AVG. it should install. if not, try the following

Go to system restore and create restore point for safety.

go to run and type regedit and then enter

Press cntrl + F for finding earlier registry keys of AVG. Try to find out all old registry keys amd delete them all.

Restart the machine. Its DONE.
