glang17,
what are you trying to do when you get this error message? The message itself is telling you that AVG setup or update is currently running, therefore it will only allow (1) instance of it to run, not multiple. You should be able to see it if you open your task manager; if necessary you can kill the process there as well. Hope this helps.

Error code 0xE001D026..

I have a similar problem. I am trying to do my manual AVG update. The web-browing part of AVG somehow got uninstalled. I tried to re-install it. A window comes up that says:

MFA is already running and only one instance is allowed at a time. Error code 0xE001D026

Does this mean that my AVG window(that says my web-browsing is not protected) is incorrect?

What is MFA?

Error code 0xE001DO26..

I have restored my system (AVG has detected 2 virus, but could not eliminate them) because I had problem with my PC. After it, AVG is not working and it is impossible neither to to remove it nor to reinstall again.
The Error Message is: MFA is already running and only one instance is allowed at a time- Error code 0xE001D026.
How to solve this problem?

Hi mediterraneo,

It seems that there is another installation running at the same time as the AVG installation. It might be also Windows update. Please wait for a few minutes and then follow these instructions to re-install your AVG.

What's the situation now?

Please attach the Msinfo Output and System Event Logs to your reply if the issue still persists.

Thanks.

I have the same problem I had to restore my PC to an earlier point because of a Windows Update error. Now my AVG 2012 is not running cannot be uninstalled and I cannot install 2013. When I try I get the above mentioned error message. I have included my msinfo and also my event logs. I tried to use the AVG uninstaller tool and it also had an error that i didn't see a code for.

Hello TMcRoy,

For help on your issue please try first uninstalling Toolbar according to this FAQ and then use AVG remover (32/64).

Thank you.
