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.

There is a reason they are known as AOHell in the computer trade.
I know you have paid for McAfee but you are better off without it, McAfee will be a major drain on your system resources slowing your computer down.
Try and get your money back for McAfee and download the free version of AVG 8.0. This new version of AVG comes with lots of extra security enhancements not just antivirus.
You can download AVG 8.0 free here:

There are plenty of reasons not to install McAfee and if you are interested you can read about them here:

Yes you need to uninstall any and all antivirus programs installed on your computer. After uninstalling, make sure to reboot your computer. Do that for each antivirus or internet security software you have installed. Once done, it Norton 360 should install. If you have troubles uninstalling AVG, check their support area on their website. I'm not sure if you have a paid version or the free version but here are the sites for both.

Hope this helps! : )

I have downloaded AVG FRee 8.0 but AVG 7.5 is still on computer and I don't know where AVG 8 is.


Hi,

It seems there is some conflict in between 2 versions.

I would suggest better uninstall AVG 7.5 first and then again instal 8.0 in your computer.

It should work now.

Take care

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?
