I have downloaded the upgrade AVG 7.5 to a flash pen and want to take it to my daughters and install it on her laptop in place of the 7.1 version. Do I need to uninstall the 7.1 first or will it install over the top. Is there anything else I need to know. Her OS is xp home and she is on AOL. She tried it herself but said it would not install. Many thanks.
It is recommended you install over the top first BUT there can be a problem in a minority of case with this. If you do an upgrade over the top you MUST check that AVG is still scanning the email messages. In a minority of cases it fails to start and if that happens then the recommendation is to delete AVG and do a clean install. But they do recommend installing over the top first. There are details of this on the AVG Forum if you are interested. One of my friends PCs did fail to scan emails, an old PC using Win98 - don't know if this has anything to do with it - anyway, deleted it and installed from scratch and worked perfectly second time around.
