AVG uninstall problem

  alan007 17:22 25 Feb 2007

I had to run a system restore which fixed audio problems i was having with my laptop but when everything was back to normal i had a problem with AVG anti-virus.

When i tried to launch AVG Control Centre i got message saying - could not initalize AVG anti-virus kernal interface - application cannot run.

I then tried to uninstall AVG but got message saying installer initaliztion failed due to following error - initalization of the language file "C:\Program files\Grisoft\AVGFREE" failed.

Can anyone help?? Cheers

The general thought is that if an uninstall fails to find a component then reinsatll the program and then uninstall it. In your case if still want AVG I would suggest that you just download a new copy and reinstall. This should reinstall over the previous copy and " fingers crosesed" all should be well.

You can try ,Right click AVG on quick start,Quit AVG control centre,Apply or ok.Cant remember which one that stops it running,Then try removing it from add remove.If not reinstall it,See if it works ,if not uninstall again,Remember to stop it running first,Then run C Cleaner and Install again.

I would download AVG again afresh and run it. When you run the downloaded program theres an option to delete it.

I suggest that you re-install it. Select the Repair option.

If all the above fails you,remove the program while in safemode.Tapping F8 on startup will get you into safemode.Then run ccleaner when into windows,click here
Then download again and install.

Hi guys, thanks a lot for your help but i managed to solve this myself by installing AVG 7.0 Free from a cd that i got free with magazine and was able to update it 7.1 then 7.5! Thanks!!
