Uninstalled Avg as getting odd messages, tried to reinstall via a link & nothing happened, but got an e-mail saying thank you for installing avg blah blah blah

help/advice appreciated

Often 1 remaining file can hinder reinstall. If add/remove doesn't work just delete files manually, even in registry, reboot, then reinstall.

if the entry for AVG is in the Add/Remove programs list, uninstall again.

shutdown and restart pc, then try to install again.

your system may have needed a shutdown to clear some files in the registry.

good luck

Not 100% ofay with deleting from the registry
Anyone with any other advice would be appreciated

If not 100% with deleting anything in the registry, back-up first, from 'regedit' file>export (to say desktop) I think you double click on it to restore the registry. HTH TR
