    Exactly the same, couldn't start up the AVG 8.0 Free so like an idiot paid for the full programme with the same outcome. AVG don't want to know. Never had a problem with 7.5 Free. Have tried various free downloads with no success.

This is how i fixed to problem i was having the same issue with the free avg 8.5 and 9.0 i downloaded the free 7.5 from brothersoft which is out dated but it will load and run with errors but you just keep updating it. after the second or thrid update avg will ask you to upgrade to the 8.5 and it will work fine. i just kept udating it until i had the 8.5 version most important you must delete the version you are having problems with before you download the outdated 7.5 version. if you keep the 8.5 and try to download the 7.5.

What is it doing? Is it giving you an error message?
Try going to trendmicro.com and running house call, and live.com and running the full service scan they are both free scans. If you have a virus it can keeo a antivirus product from installing unfortuantly a virus can keep the above scans from running.

SOURCE: problem installing AVG free: error 0x800736b1

Uninstalling and reinstalling normally works. Do you use a regcleaning program at all. would recommend you do as the good ones (Uniblue suite, Regcure, Regmechanic) clean up your registry and removes invalid reg files. So b4 reinstalling AVG try a recleaner first, then re-install. Also try googling your error number as you are not alone with this prob.
Sorry I cant be anymore help.

I have just installed Symantec AntiVirus and installed the updates ok, but when i come to scan the scan engine returned error 0x20000003 comes up any solutions Charmaine


Hello,

Rhis error due to there is a resident virus or your system infexted by virus already. for the main time try to install other antivirus. you can get it here for free: http://free.avg.com/download-avg-anti-virus-free-edition

And then scan your system. You can remove the sysmantec if you like AVG or you can reinstall the symantec if there is no error in your system. remove either of the two antivirus to avoid conflict in the system.

may this help,

Desktop has serious problems with no antivirus program installed. Am trying to install AVG free 8.0, and keep getting Error: Action failed for file avgwdsvc.exe: starting service... Error 0x800736b1...


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.

I bought a new HP 2133 mini note pc which has Windows Vista on it. I have been trying to download the avgfree 8.0 antivirus program. It keeps telling me that one error is occuring. It says Action failed...


Try this link to download it...

http://free.avg.com/ww.download?prd=afe

This maybe the same link you have already tried. If it is, just do a google search for AVG free, it's available from several other places.


You also need to download a patch for Vista and AVG to work together, if you go to this link ...

http://www.avg.co.uk/uk.faq.num-1066#faq_1066

You can download the patch from microsoft via AVG website, you need to select FAQ number 1177 then choose the download according to your OS ie 32bit or 64bit.

Hope this helps.

Change the name of the destination directory ( ex: C:\Program Files\Yahoo2 ) ...it works for me.
First reinstall Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable from here:
