I fixed registry errors and erased temporary files with CCleaner.
I scanned with Chkdsk.
I defragmented my hard drive.
I used Dial-a-Fix to repair permissions since I have other protection software as well.
If I uninstall reinstall I get this error:

Local machine: installation failed
Error: Action failed for file avgmfx86.sys: starting service....
Error 0x8007007f

I did all that because that's what I was told in the AVG forum.

Are you aware that AVG 7.5 and AVG 8.0 are two completley different programs?

MaY one ask how you uninstalled the AVG 7.5 program ?
