Hello darrinmoen,

You Havn't specified, What is the problem exactly. I mean you have not specified the error Description.

But still The problem could arose while uninstalling Antivirus Program would be:

1. Any *.dll file missing from antivirus directory.
2. system file of antivirus missing from System32 directory of windows.
3. Any file that belongs to antivirus are not able to load while installinfg like uninst.exe.
4.Windows installer 3.0 is not installed on ur system
(Check out all the above including reviewing ur antivirus directory for uninst.exe file)

To solve this error you must do the following:
1. Run AVG antivirus setup program to repair. some times it doesnot give you the option if half of installed program have been removed from system.
2. Go to run type "regedit" and press enter
3. go to hkey_local_machine ->SOFTWARE -> and select AVG
expand trees of AVG.
4. Check for data path and its contents in AVG directory of program files, and also For UninstPath to varify that the uninst.exe in avg directory of program files is not missplaced
5. After doing the specified solution 60% are the chances that ur program would be uninstalled. else if it doesnot uninstall the program and gives the same error then Choose system restore tool.

For restoring do the following:
1. Go to Start -> All Programs -> Accessories ->System Tools
and select System Restore
2. Go to next window, Choose the restore point that was before installing of ur AVG Antivirus.
3. Select that restore point by reading the description.
4. Click next to restore.

Note: Your system will restart after choosing the restore point and clicking next. It takes some time to restore.

Most probably this tool will help you to remove this antivirus.

Remove it's entry from registry by Going to run type "regedit" and press enter
go to hkey_local_machine ->SOFTWARE -> andright click AVG
and select delete option to delete.

Gimme acknowledgement after removal

It's not normally for an antivirus to stay few months without updates,you're probably infecteed with a virus which disable the update option.Uninstal your antivirus and reinstall new one,i personally use AVG,is easy to use,very good antivirus and above all is free,if you want it,go here and download it:

You can try AVG anti-virus software
http://free.avg.com/us-en/homepage
http://www.avira.com/en/avira-free-antivirus
Only warning I have is AVG may interfere with Itunes. However, that problem may have been fixed in the past year. Check with Apple. They are aware of the conflict.

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.

Problem in antivirus


unless there is a problem with the server at AVG it should update no problem, when you click update for the first time you have the option to click file or internet, clicking internet should go to the AVG server. Sometimes it takes a few times to update, but if it continues, uninstal AVG and re install it.
