When the pc restarted I noticed my AVG 8.0 icon was no longer in the toolbar. I clicked on the desktop icon and received the following message:
This application has failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect. reinstalling the application may fix the problem.
So I uninstalled AVG and tried to reinstall it again but I am unable to install it. Just when it looks like installation is about to finish the AVG software rolls back the installation and I get the following message:
Local machine Installation failed
Error: Action failed for file avgwdsvc.exe
I went on the AVG website and downloaded their VCleaner software as well as some of the other antivirus software they have and tried to use them in safe mode but the scans end abruptly without telling me anything.
I also attempted to install the Microsoft .Net Framework 3.5 from Microosft's website. The installation also fails.
I then tried install Norton 360 trial, Trojan remover trial etc. they all have the same problem. I can't finish installing them on my pc.
I ran Trend Micro Housecall free scan it found some spyware I deleted that after a message popped up saying:
Since infections have been detected on your machine, we recommend that you perform a full scan again
But when I do the scan finds nothing.
I tried to run the free AV and security scan on Norton's website when I ran the security scan I received the following message:
The following checks did not run due to an error on the server. Hacker exposure check. Windows vulnerability check. Trojan Horse check.
Malwarebytes anti malware does not find anything either.
I am pretty sure this is some kind of virus or trojan horse since it disabled my AVG and does not allow me to reinstall any antivirus software.
I use Comodo Firewall Pro, I had a paid subcription to AVG 8.0 and checked for updates multiple times each day, I made sure to download all the latest Windows XP SP2 updates. I thought I was protected.
Please help me.
Thanks in advance.
