As I suspect most people do, I found your forums because of a problem I have with my pc. More on that in a tick..
I just tried logging into your chat room, and was refused entry due to my user name?? Tried changing it... no joy. Anyway...
I hope my issue is a simple one, and perhaps I am being a bit of a moron, because I can't find a solution on here!
I am trying to re-install AVG 8 free on my partners computer (running Vista home premium). She had it on there for a while, not too sure why, but she has removed it and tried to reinstall. Now, upon installation we get a message stating "installation failed!" with the following details
Local machine: installation failed
Error: Action failed for file avgmfx86.sys: starting service....
I have used registry cleaners as advised on another forum, to no avail. I have tried using the AVG uninstaller to ensure all AVG files are removed. No joy. I've tried using 'perfect uninstaller' program, just to ensure AVG isn't still somewhere on my system. I keep getting the same error message.
There is no restore point set up on this PC, unfortunately, so can't return to a previous setup.
I'd really appreciate some help, as all the advice I've read elsewhere so far (others are clearly having the same problem) doesn't help and we don't currently have any anti virus installed on this PC.
Many thanks in advance...
