Since downloading AVG 2013 free edition, I find I can't download anything without a message coming up "failed - virus detected".
Is there any answer to this? Can you send out your 2012 edition again?

Same problem here, LinkScanner Surf-Shield can't seem to be disabled? You can toggle it to 'disabled' status, but on the summary page Web Browsing still shows a green 'protected' status, and downloading of any sort of file is impossible.

Actually it's still available on the forum.. 'AVG 2012 Free Edition' forum area.. Have a look @ this Announcement post link AVG 2012 Free Edition - Summary.
If you're not sure about 32 or 64 bit on your system have a look @ this link.. http://forums.avg.com/ww-en/avg-free-forum?sec=thread&act=show&id=140471#post_140471.

I'm having the same issue. Got a pop-up last night for the 2013 upgrade and immediately after downloading, I started getting the "Download Failed - Virus Detected" error on everything.

I tried uninstalling tonight, but now can't download the 2012 version (neither in Chrome or IE) because of the error. Have tried a couple restarts, updating Chrome, etc. without any luck. Any other ideas I may be missing?

Edit: I just ended up doing a system restore.

Still Doesn't Work - Failed - Virus detected..

I tried the fix you just posted a link to...to 'disable' and then reinstall AVG 2013 and I am getting an error when pasting the disable code into the command prompt. I have already uninstalled and deleted the AVG software 2013 from my computer but I am unable to download ANYTHING. No matter what I try to download...even AVG 2013 or 2012 it simply will not let me. As soon as it finishes downloading the file it immediately disables the download with the 'Failed - Virus detected' badge where I should be able to 'run' the download. Can you post another solution to this? Thanks.
