Hi,

Pls verify that you are logged on as Administrator and that no other related software are running such as Ad-Aware or ZoneLabs. It would seem further that you would need to contact AVG / Grisoft and for then to send you a batch file that you need to run before installing AVG 8. The file is named "reset_access.bat". After the bat file, the installation should work. The bat file is supposed to clear up some permissions issue that will allow the installation to proceed.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

    Alternately, you can Try downloading this files from here.
    Decompress the zipped file (extract) to a folder in your C drive and run reset_access.bat , it should fix the registry problem and allow installation.

    Or you can try manually editing your registry by deleting the entry HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\AvgDiagFile\DefaultIcon.

    Start/Run, type "regedit" less the quotes.

    This link works as I was able to download, unzipped and run "reset_access.bat". After running this, you should be able to install your purchased AVG 8.0.

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.

I paid n paid n this is all i get......what is it????


Well im not a PC expert, but HKLM/ stuff are registry and Key Values, they effect your systems entire performance from startup through. If you have bad key files you need to have someone who know about bios setups look at it, usually if its a bad keyfile you need to wipe the hard drive and reinstall windows. Atleast thats what i did the last time i got a message like that at pc startup.

Installing avg 8.0


AVG is free for home users. Why would you pay for it? To install it you only need to download it from the web site and install it. If you paid for it, you will be prompted to put in your serial number when you install it. Maybe you have a bad download. Have you tried to download it again? Are you using VISTA OR XP. Vista will block you sometimes if you do not shut off all of the controls that it has. Even though you are the administrator, Vista blocks you from doing certain things. This is a glitch in Vista. Try shutting off the firewall and the user account setting that blocks people from doing anything. The error code that you gave is only for AVG people and we have no way of telling you what it means. When is this error code coming up? Is it a blue screen or what. It is hard to answer that kind of question unless we know what steps you took before it showed up. I have never had any problem with AVG since the first version came out. Can you give us more information?
