Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
My system recently crashed.... When I rebooted, I was unable to access AVG 7.5.... My attempts to repair it with avg75free_516a1225.exe failed, so I uninstalled it and tried to re-install it.... But each time I've tried results in an "Installation Failed" dialog box which suggests that I contact if the problem persists.... When I click on "Details," I get this message:
Error: Action failed for file avgamsvr.exe: starting service....
%1 is not a valid Win32 application. (193)....
So I downloaded Avg Free Edition 8.0 and tried installing that only to get the following messages after the installation failed: "Error: Action failed for avgernc.exe starting service.... Error 0x800700c1"
"Warning: Action failed for director Cfg; removing directory....
"Warning: Action failed for director Log; removing directory....
"Warning: Action failed for director avg8; removing directory....
"Warning: Action failed for director AVG8; removing directory....
"Warning: Action failed for director AVG; removing directory....
Any help with resolving these issues would be appreciated
I use AVG Free Edition because I'm on a very limited Social Security income.... Buying anti-virus software wouldz be a real hardship on me....
The reason you couldn't install AVG 8 with XP and Service Pack 1 is because the system requirements for AVG 8 are that Win XP have Service 2 or higher. Install the Windows Service Pack 2 or 3 and you should find that it works okay then. I've done over 100 Win XP installs of AVG 8 now and only have two that are failing (after having AVG 7.5 working fine on them - both getting "action failed for file avgssie.dll : file registration" and am chasing this up with AVG now.

Do a custom install, skip the e-mail scanner.

Step one: goto www.ninite.com
step two: check avg or any of the other free anti-virus that you choose.
step three: scroll down a little bit and click on Get Installer
step four: after it installs you now have a anti-virus installed on your computer.

I've had the exact same problem. I'm running XP Pro srv pk 3. avg install progresses to %98 and stops, displaying the progress bar reversing back to %0. What's up w/ it?

I had issues installing avg 8. I uninstalled avg 7.5 before installing the new version. It refused to install on my xp pro machine running service pack 1. I did a complete registry clean up and tried again to install version 8 no luck. Looks like version 8 has some bugs for xp pro users. I am now running avira free edition. No problems only it does not seen to have auto email scan. I will wait for AVG to iron out the wrinkles. It sounds like beta to me.
