AVG FAQs 1151:
Is there a standalone AVG Anti-Virus Edition or AVG Anti-Spyware Edition available with AVG 8.0?
No, there is no standalone product available with anti-virus or anti-spyware functionality only. AVG 7.5 Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware users will be offered a free upgrade to AVG 8.0 Anti-Virus, containing anti-virus and anti-spyware functionality protection within one improved scanning engine.
AVG FAQ 1198: Infection detected in "ActiveX Compatibility" registry key
An "ActiveX Compatibility" registry key is a result of the "Immunize" function included in some anti-spyware programs (e.g.: "Spybot search & destroy", "Spyware blaster",...)
The key contains the same registry entries as the actual threats, thus preventing them from working correctly. Some anti-spyware programs use this method to prevent launching of the malware. Unfortunately, these parts are still detected by AVG signatures and that is why AVG marks them as infected.
To assure protection provided by AVG against these threats, it is not possible to remove such signatures from AVG virus bases.
Because of this, "Immunize" function included in above mentioned softwares is NOT compatible with AVG products.

Thank you, Alumbagh and Quietman 7
I have uninstalled all references to AVG 7 and Search finds nothing.
However I still cannot install AVG 8 for the reason given in my first posting.
Is there another free anti virus I can install until the AVG experts sort this out, please?
I have used AVG for years with no problems!!
