AVG and Vista

  Jazzyboo 20:21 24 Nov 2008

When I had to install an updated version of AVG it would not work with Vista. After discussion on here I opted for Avast which I have no problems with. However, everytime I log on up comes the following message "Could not initialize AVG Virus Kernal interface application cannot run.
Any idea in "easy peasy" language how I can get rid of this.

Disable any protection software such as Spybot's TeaTimer ( enabled in default installation )...

1. Download the latest AVG Free installation package from [click here]
2. Run the AVG Free install file
3. Choose the Uninstall option and follow the setup wizard, when you get to the part to remove user settings, select it.
4. Restart your computer then...
5. Now reinstall AVG using the setup file you got in step 1 and update it.
