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?

    You rated my as thinks for trying. I thought that the problem was fixed. If you are still having any trouble please let me know.
    If you are aware of viruses you also need to be aware of spyware. If you do not have a free spyware program let me know. I can direct you to 2 free programs that work great. The AVG spyware program even needs another program to make sure it does not miss something. Spyware is written so that one Spyware program can not stop everything sometimes.

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.

Could'nt install avg8.0 because of error 0x80070005

Are you certain that you couldn't just click 'continue' and have it install correctly (despite posting that error)? Which OS were you trying to install in, anyhow? Perhaps you can installed AVG Free or Moon Secure with some success, and be satisfied with that at first?

Upgrading to AVG 8 from the 7.5 purchased version

Hi Collin there are several likely possibilities:

1) AVG keeps an extensive black lists of compromised
serial numbers.

These are numbers that have been published on the internet,
or numbers that have been associated with too many different
IP addresses during the download of automatic updates.

If a black listed serial number is detected during the daily
update sequence, Grisoft will send you a Trojan update
which disables your product.

2) A black listed serial number from the original installation,
may also propagate to any updates installed over the
top of it.

3) Also, AVG has become the target of many viruses, root kits
and Trojans that have found a way to hack it, remove it and
even prevent it from being re-installed, including many
"beagle" varieties.

4) AVG will not detect nor identify these viruses, even if you
manually find and scan the file.

AVG will however identify many false positives, as well as
most key generators designed to crack it (AVG).

5) The first thing you can do is contact AVG and complain
loudly in Czech or English. Their head office (Grisoft)
is in Brno in the Czech Republic.

6) Scan your machine with another product (!!!), including:

Rootkit Revealer (Free from Winternals/Mark Russinowich)
Black light (Trial ware from F-Secure)

I have had my AVG installation hacked by malware at least
a dozen times in the last year, so I no longer trust it. I still
use it, but I use a multitude of other products ad well.

Use only well known and reputable (brand name) products,
beware of hundreds of ROGUE scanners out there that are
themselves viruses and try to milk you for money.

7) Keep in mind that NO anti-malware product detects
everything, not even close, so you are fighting a loosing

8) Once you are reasonably confident that your machine is
clean, by using other products, totally remove AVG and
re-install it.

Isn't it ironic that you have to clean your machine BEFORE
you can install the ANTIVIRUS ?!!!

9) If you can't get your legit serial to work, do what all honest
angry customers do.

Go to a crack site, get yourself a bogus serial or a key
generator (check it for viruses with another product, not
AVG), Install AVG plus the current updates, before number
gets black-listed, and then DISABLE the automatic updates
in AVG as well as the Windows Scheduler Service.

BTW. Keep your key generator on a CD, because AVG
may detect it as a virus, and try to destroy it.


If your software is legit, but the serial does NOT work, then:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- used to be the best site for serials,
but their domain name expired about a week ago, so I don't
know what gives.

crackspider is another one.
also try: Pirate Bay

Always disable scripts in your Firefox, before
visiting these sites, some may try to hack your
