Having had the same problem I did the following to resolve the issue:
Run SERVICES.MSC from the start menu
Find the AVG Watchdog service, open it up and set it to disable
Run REGEDIT from the start menu
Click Edit and Find then search for 'Watchdog' (excluding quotes)
Check the permissions for the key found to make sure 'administrators' is listed with read/write access
If 'administrators' is missing, add 'administrators' as a user and tick read and write and click ok
Press the F3 function key to repeat the search and find every instance of Watchdog and check the permissions for each.
Once you've changed the permissions (I found 3 missing administrator entries) you can re-run the installer and choose 'repair' which should now complete and go through the standard setup questions, reboot and you're done.

Starting service failed because of file avgwdsvc.exe

Be sure that your Windows Installer is not disabled or turned off. In Start>Run type gpedit.msc and click OK. The Group Policies window opens. In both Computer Configuration and User Configuration go to Administrative Templates>Windows Components and find Windows Installer. In both places, be sure that it is not disabled or turned off.
This solved the AVG install problem for me. Good luck

I had the same problem on WIndows XP 32-bit trying to reinstall AVG 8.5:
action failed for file avgwdsvc.exe: starting service...
AVG 8.5 was running fine before I did a System Restore, then it stopped working. I suspect it was due to a corrupted .NET framework 2.0. I finally fixed this by updating the .NET framework to 2.0SP2, fully uninstalling AVG with the avgremover tool found on the web (regular uninstall woudn't work), plus I installed and ran CCleaner (also found on the web) to clean out all of the remaining AVG keys that avgremover missed. I then removed the old Program Files/AVG directory and reinstalled AVG 8.5.

You most likely need to reinstall the avg internet security program. whenever you get errors like this, it usually means that the software has gotten corrupted for whatever reason. either through a bad update or some other type of bad luck. reinstall and your problem should be gone.

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.

click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need.
