In an effort to upgrade my AVG software, my current version was uninstalled and I was not able to install the upgrade. In trying to fix the problem, AVG sent me .exe files to extract and my computer is blocking them. I checked the 'show hidden files' but they are not showing and still blocking.

Reboot the computer and start tapping the F8 key. When the option presents itself, select safemode and try it from there

My question is this: How did you remove the previous program? If you used Windows Add or Remove there are probably remnants of the program left installed that are blocking you. Try this: Start>All programs>Hover over AVG and open the drop down box...Select Un-install and go from there (if it is still there).
Does this look like an OldGrumpyBastard or what?
