Avg 8.0 may not be compatible with vista. You can try to reinstalled your windows security by selecting them from the add/remove programs feature in windows setup, located in the control panel. It's hidden in there but available through searching.

I would recommend using Windows One Care. If you install that from Microsoft.com, it may turn your Windows security back on while making it possible to usinstall AVG.

Good luck on that.

<p>AVG offers a number of compelling features and the right technology to keep your PC protected. As one of the best antivirus software products reviewed, AVG offers a great solution that delivers advanced protection and simple use. But apart from these AVG have some advantages and Disadvantages.<br /> <p> <br /> <p>Advantages<br /> <ul> <li> Protection: - AVG Anti-Virus is fully armed to protect your computer from threats from a number of angles. The software includes antivirus and antispyware protection, as well as complete online protection from harmful sites and downloads.</li> <li> Ease of Installation: - AVG Anti-Virus is easy to download and install. The installation is straightforward and doesn't require a restart. And while it's not the fastest, it's relatively quick and performs an update immediately.</li> <li> Improved features: - Though you can download AVG protection software freely, but the security software is by no means ineffective.</li> <li> It's improved features like Link Scanner, ID Protection makes it the most effective scanner.</li></ul> <p> <br /> <p>Disadvantages:-<br /> <p>When uninstalling AVG version 7 or 8 in Windows XP/Vista and attempting to install other anti-virus programs such as Kaspersky Anti-Virus or Norton Antivirus, the latter programs will not install.<br /> <p>Instead, they show an "incompatible software installed" error even if the uninstalled software has been removed using the control panel.<br /> <p> <br /> <p>This happens because software that updates and changes can add registry entries that were not added when the product was originally installed.<span> </span>A signature update dated November 9, 2008, crippled some computers, as it allowed the software to treat "user32.dll", a major component of Windows XP/Vista, as a Trojan and advised users to delete it.

The problem was rectified a few days later with a new signature database and further safeguards were added to the product.

First of all, having two Security Program in your laptop is not a good idea. Most of the time it creates conflict and would result into some sort of confusing each other whom would detect that virus. Other than that, having two security software would slow down the computer performance as both programs would eat large amount of your RAM. Best thing to go here is to uninstall either AVG or Norton. I recommend AVG as it has this feature called Email Scanner which would help detecting such virus that goes through emails. For more AVG FAQ you may check. www.avg.com/faq

Avg cant work becouse of error 0xE001D027


I am glad to HELP YOU!

Usually this error code (error 0xE001D027) appears when you have installed the AVG after you have un-installed a previous antivirus or an Internet security package.
What I'd suggest you:
# download and install Revo Uninstaller from HERE (it's the BEST UNISTALLER I've ever known)
# uninstall AVG (already installed) and any LEFTOVERS from the previously installed ANTIVIRUS/INTERNET SECURITY SOFTWARE
# when all it will be done REINSTALL AVG

Some extra details you have HERE.

GOOD LUCK!

AVG Antivirus is a popular security software that is available both in free and paid versions. There can be many reasons for you to uninstall AVG Antivirus from your computer. Some of the most common reasons are:

* You want to upgrade to the latest AVG Antivirus version and you are unable to do so without uninstalling the current version.
* The AVG Antivirus installation is corrupt and you want to uninstall and then reinstall it to repair the issues.
* You feel the AVG is slowing down your PC and you want to opt for lighter antivirus software such as Antivirus Plus.

If you cannot uninstall AVG Antivirus using the Add or Remove Programs utility available in the Control Panel, you may use one of the following methods to uninstall AVG Antivirus from the system:

Using AVG Remover Tool

1. Open AVG Tools Download web page.
2. Here, search for and download the AVG Remover tool for the AVG software you have installed on your computer.
3. After the download is complete, use this utility to uninstall AVG Antivirus from the system.

You may be asked to restart your PC a few times during the removal process. So, it is best to use this feature when you are not doing any other work on your computer.

When you uninstall AVG Antivirus software by using the AVG Remover tool, the following related files and folders are removed from the system:

* All AVG user
* Virus Vault content
* User files
* Registry entries
* Any other information related to AVG

AVG Remover tool removes a lot of data related to AVG from your computer. During this process, the chances are quite high that some essential Windows or user file is removed. This is the reason why, you must use this method only if you cannot remove AVG using Add or Remove Programs.

Uninstall of software


Sounds like you did not do things in the correct order or you did not reboot between the AVG uninstall and the Kapersky install, so that it looked like AVG was still loaded.

Since Kapersky is not installed, the best way to proceed is to start from a fresh reboot, download and re-install the AVG free edition to get the registry entries corrected. Don't bother with updates as it is coming back out again. Reboot and uninstall AVG. Reboot again and verify AVG is gone before attempting to install the Kapersky.

AVG free can be downloaded from free.grisoft.com assuming you mean the 8.0 version, not 7.5, otherwise try downloading from www.filehippo.com and select the older version.
