Do you mind posting the exact error message? Also, try clearing all temporary files with something like CCleaner (there's a link in my signature).

That file is used by MSWord, Outlook, and perhaps outlook express. Since AVG integrates with email programs, it may not be able to uninstall while theya re running

Also fizzyg although you said that the error was MFC71.DLL did it say it was missing or corrupted?
The following Information was gained With thanks to the WinAntiVirus 2005 Knowledge Base
A dynamic link library (DLL) is a collection of small programs, which can be called upon when needed by any executable program. Such files are responsible for allowing the application to communicate with a specific device such as a printer or may contain source code to do particular functions. MFC71.dll is one of those indispensable and crucial dynamic link library files that controls most of the functions triggered by different applications on the user's system..
The uninstallation of antivirus solutions from the user's system could accidentally remove the MFC71.dll file too. With this crucial file missing, the system encounters various functional difficulties especially when programs like AntiVirus call this file. The system usually displays error messages that the MFC71.dll is either missing or corrupted.
Follow the steps discussed below to go about installing MFC71.dll again on your computer:
1. Download the .dll file from the following link:
2. A File Download window opens.
3. The MFC71.dll file needs to be restored back to its original location on your computer. To acheive this, click Save in the dialog window and save the file in any of the following paths depending on the type of OS you use:
a) For Windows 2000/XP operating systems: C:\WINNT\System32.
b) For Windows 98/ME operating systems: C:/Windows/System
NOTE: The location of the Windows folder may differ from PC to PC depending on the system configuration. Hence, if you do not find the Windows folder in the location specified above, it is recommended to search for the folder manually. The System folder will always be present inside this Windows folder and this is where the .dll file should be saved.

I want you to create a restore point if you dont know how the instructions are
To create a new System Restore Point in Windows XP click Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> System Restore. When the System Restore Utility opens, click "Create a Restore Point" then click Next. Enter a name for this Restore Point (for instance, "Before the MFC71.dll "), and click Create. The utility will then take a snapshot of your system so that you can restore to that point sometime in the future.
and then you can replace the MFC71.dll then if any thing dose go wrong then at least we can restore the system.

Although it is wise to save your work if you are working on it before creating the restore point.
