Can I just setup AVG even though the AVG 8 is in Add/Program section? " instead of "Save File", I was able to download AVG. I installed the new version without any problems whatsoever & it works great.

I had no idea bc I never had any problems before when I only clicked "Save File").(46.13MB) same download at File Hippo: AVG Free Edition 8.0.138Grisoft Inc - 46.13MB (Freeware) is good i used it for years but now i use avast home edition as its also free and i havnt looked back once i installed avast it found 18 viruses that avg hadnt picked up and im able to use my pc pretty much straight away once its booted whereas with avg i had to wait for the update to be done avast updates nicely in the background gave me a fright when it first updated and it informed me it had completed (had speakers turned up)in my personal opinion avg is good but i prefer avast as my antivirus First, try to remove AVG in SAFEMODEHow To Start In 'Safe Mode'Restart the computer, pressing the F8 key once per second, till it loads a selection screen. I called Walling Data Systems, where I purchased my AVG 8, and was told 1)to check to make sure my computer clock was set correctly, and if so 2)to download a more recent build as they had some hangups with some of the earlier versions for some reason. But one of your comments indicates that you are probably OK too, except that something happened during the update download.

Use the up and down arrows to select "Safe Mode", press enter, and the computer will load into a safe mode. While you are downloading a file, there are always two files created: one says "part" and the other is the file itself.

It looks like a normal screen but with Safe Mode in each of the four corners. re done, restart the machine and it will boot normally. Backing up the XP Registry - have FIRST to REMOVE AVG 8 and clean up everything before you can install it again ! When the download completes, the one that says "part" disappears and the file is now completely downloaded.

The link you posted was to remove the entry in the registry. If you still saw both files after the download, then the download did not complete successfully - when you click on the file, it doesn't work because it isn't fully downloaded, but further update attempts will fail because AVG thinks you have already done.

I think all you have to do is to, instead of using the "update" feature, simply go to the AVG website and manually download the file - do NOT use the update feature.
