What antivirus have you been using before?
Are you trying to install AVG 8.0?
That particular version has been having a lot of problems from get go.

I've been AVG user for number of years, until version 8.0 came out. I'm pretty experienced computer user, and I had a heck of a time to install that thing on my XP, and Vista computers. Then, Ive read of many other problems related to this particular version of AVG, and I simply said: Goodbye, it's not worth my effort.
I installed Avast on Vista, and Avira on XP. Both free. I'm happy camper now...
