I have a problem with AVG 7.5 Free Edition.

AVG has been installed on my computer before but after some problems, I removed it.

When I try to install a fresh copy of AVG Free, I get an error message;

I was also wondering why Windows is telling me that AVG is out of date when I'm not able to install it in the first place.

I have tried to search for traces of AVG but couldn't find any. Tried the registry, *Show all files/ *hide protected and looked for it at program files.. nothing, tried on safe mode, still nothing. Is this a trace of the old installation?

I would really appreciate any help.

Thank You in Advance.

Download the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility and look for anything referring to AVG and check the box by it and run it. Download AVG Free to the Desktop, then go into Safemode and install from there. See if that helps

when you apparently removed AVG previously, do you know it WAS removed and uninstalled from the computer and how DID you uninstall it?

what was the problem with it that it required uninstalling ?
