I have a fresh install of Windows 8, and when I install AVG 2011 Corporate it fails. Have run AVG Removal tool then tried to insstall AVG 2011 Corporate with elevated priviledges, still get 0xC0070643 error.

Requested files attached. I had to split one file into 3 parts because it was >5 MB. OOPS it will only allow 3 file attachments so I'll put part 3 in another post.

Well, DUH, the cab file is compressed and will fit.

Cab file with both logs is attached.

I also tried to install Microsoft Security Essentials on this Windows 8 computer and it said that Windows Defender already was providing the necessary AV protection, perhaps that is why AVG will not install either - there is an anti-virus program built into Windows 8?

Well, that did not work. I disabled Defender, set it to not run at startup and the AVG still failed to install on WIN 8.

Wiped the Windows 8 partition and reinstalling clean Windows 8 with absolutely no updates. Will then install AVG and see how that goes.
