Q: I can’t install/un-install AVG 8.0/8.5 ? What should I do ?

A: First off, You should always download the newest version of AVG from http://free.avg.com/download-file-ins-afe.

First off try the old stand by AVG ‘Repair‘ option which you can choose during the installation process. Of course to do that you need a non-corrupted version of AVG Free install file.. I would highly recommend using the latest 8.5.449 install file.

A. Download & save the latest AVG Free installation package from this link http://free.avg.com/download-file-ins-afe

B. Run the AVG Free install file

C. Choose the Repair option and follow the setup wizard

D. Restart your computer then test

Download the install file to your DESKTOP

WARNING: Do not ever try to run AVG install file from the Internet as that will always cause issues. THANKS TO AVG FREE FORUM FOR THOSE WORDS OF WISDOM

If the AVG installation fails to work….your gonna need to check to see if your file is corrupted

Now to check if your AVG install File is corrupted. By using the version 8.5.449 install file….

A. Download & save the latest AVG Free installation package from this link http://free.avg.com/download-file-ins-afe

B. Run the AVG Free install file

C. Choose the Un-install option and follow the setup wizard, when you get to the part to remove user settings, select it.

D. Restart your computer then…

E. Now reinstall AVG using the setup file you got in step 1 and update.

PLEASE: Disable any other protection software you have. Before you start the AVG Free installation process as they can potentially prevent AVG Free from installing properly.

Types of protection this covers are:

- Spyware/Adware (Example: Windows defender, Spybot)

- Anti-virus (Example: Avira )

- Firewalls (Example: Zone Alarm, Window’s Firewall)
