Without Firefox installed get following installation error...


Local machine: installation failed
Installation:
Error: Action failed for file avgfinst.dat: creating file....
File opening failed.
Error 0xe001042c

(avg_free_stb_en_8_32_free)

With Firefox installed, get following error...

Local machine: installation failed
Installation:
Error: Action failed for registry value HKLM\SOFTWARE\Mozilla\Firefox\Extensions:{3f963a5b-e555-4543-90e2-c3908898db71}: creating registry value....
Error 0x80070005


Windows Vista Home Premium (64 bit)
(Service Pack 1)

HP Pavilion dv2 Notebook PC
AMD Athlon Neo MV-40 1.6 GHz
4GB RAM

Have tried using the (avgremoverx64) and (avg_free_stb_en_8_32_free) with/without taskbar/firefox
as per instructions at http://forums.avg.com/ww.avg-free-forum?sec=thread&act=show&id=791.
(Tried at least twice each variation...)

One nit...

Could NOT find last two directories (Perhaps because avg never installed without error?)...

Windows Vista
C:\Program Files\AVG or C:\Program files(x86)\AVG (for 64bit OS)
C:\ProgramData\AVG8
C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\AVG8

Try to install AVG with latest full installation file "avg_free_stf_en_85_409a1634.exe" from this website
http://free.avg.com/download?prd=afe#tba2.

If that doesn't help....

Please provide us more information about your system so that we may have it to base our suggestions on, see What information should I include?.

Hi,

Please use “Reset_Access” utility and check all other anti-spyware solution as most probably other application (SpyBot, Spyware Terminator, …) or Windows Vista UAC function has blocked the access during installation

Then install AVG with full installation file from this website:
http://free.avg.com/download?prd=afe#tba2 - named "avg_free_stf_en_85_409a1634.exe" by now

Thanks
