AVG 7.5 - help with instal please""

  ROCKHARD 14:42 17 Feb 2007

Hi - can anyone help me with this query about AVG 7.5 installation. I've tried to instaell but after I've selected 'Repair Installation' the next screen requests a licence number and without this I can't proceed any further.

How do you get the licence number?

Your help would be appreciated.

Hi, just make sure you download/install the Free Version 7.5 - then when you come to install it, the licence number will be already filled in.

Download the free version from the First Orange Link.

PS - when you have the new version installed, you will need to update the Virus Data Base - when the Red icon in the new 7.5 turns Green, all will be ok.

It does look a little bit different from the earlier version avg.

Thanks Technotiger

I haven't tried it yet but it seems straight forward!!

One 'last' question - AVG 7.1 is currently installed, do I close that down before installing AVG 7.5?

no it will sort that out during install

There is a known fault in a minority of PCs. You are recommended just to install AVG 7.5 over the top of 7.1 initially but it is important to check it is still checking your emails. In a few computers it doesn't check the emails. If you find this happens to you then delete AVG using add/remove programs and reinstall from scratch using the AVG download you already have.
Try installing over the top first though as with most PCs they have no problem.

Uninstall it first then run C Cleaner then Install the new version, That way you are sure not to have any problems.I tried installing it over the top, it did not work.

Hi, don't worry too much about it, just go ahead as per my earlier response - I have just upgraded four desktop computers from 7.1 to 7.5 Free, all without any problems.

I have been running AVG free now for nearly a year, my version upgrades itself automatically I did this in settings. I am now on 7.5441.
