Question about Computers & Internet
Sorry for the multiple posts in a single day...
I have solved this issue!!! (In my case anyhow)
WARNING: What I am posting here can cause SERIOUS problems with your computer if you do not know what you are doing. If you doubt yourself, then DO NOT DO THIS.
Using information I found at: http://www.fixya.com/support/t567993-local_machine_installation_failed
Heres what I did:
1) I downloaded the latest version of RegSeeker (Link provided in the other fixya post referenced above).
2) I ONLY did a "Find in Registry". Typed "AVG" and did a search. (I searched for Grissoft as well, but it found nothing)
3) With the list of registry entries I then at the bottom, selected all using the "Select" link(with a green checkmark next to it.)
4) Using the "Action" Link (Also at the bottom) I deleted all.
5) Go to "C:\Program Files" and delete the "AVG" Folder.
6) Reboot machine
7) Start fresh install of AVG 8.0
8) Perform updates to AVG 8.0
AGAIN... This worked for me. IT MAY NOT WORK FOR YOU.
Changes to your registry by ANY means should NOT be done by those not familiar with operating systems.
For what it's worth.
