Ok so i noticed that AVG Free 2014 was released, great.
On my new core i7 PC I have AVG Free 2013 running, I'll update.
No Problem, ran install file and after a couple of restarts, job done, unreal.

Then brain storm, I'll also update my older Core i7 as well.
Same procedure then error messages etc
AVG 2014 Free installed but will not accept licence key, what licence key, its imbedded in the install file, isnt it!
So uninstall AVG 2014, use AVG registry cleaning tool, then AVG removal tool.
Reinstall AVG 2014 Free, Same error, Damed thing!
After hours of trying every way possible to update I give up.
Remove all AVG folders etc and reinstall AVG 2013 Free and evereything is good again.
SO AVG as usual you have a problem with your new edition of AVG Free on "some computers.
Any ideas????
I'll be waiting to see if Im Robinson Crusoe.
I dont think so!

Hello Robboj,

This issue can be easily solved when AVG 2014 is installed

Run registry editor and remove following keys (if they are in registry):

32bit Windows:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\AVG Security Toolbar]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\AVG Secure Search]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\AVG SafeGuard toolbar]

64 bit Windows:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\AVG Security Toolbar]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\AVG Secure Search]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\AVG SafeGuard toolbar]

AVG 2014 should be activated when user closes the dialog (pop-up).

Thank you

Same here!..

Same issue here. Downloaded the setup file from cnet. Upgraded from AVG FREE 2013. I go through the installation then says licence key error showing the attached error.

Found avg search in 64 bit registry folder deleted it and now works.

Surely nobody should have to do this? Shouldn't it be done as part of the automatic setup and installation?
