Have you tried install MSVC redistributable manually ?

btw: what OS XP 32bit? or 64bit ?

and then Install AVG free again..

OK. Thanks ! It worked. I should figure it out by myself, but I just recently installed the same MSVC, and I never thought that that's the problem. I think it was an old version of MSVC installed, and apparently the new one is not included in AVG install ( it should be ).
It would be great if the error message was somewhat useful. It should tell you specifically what is missing, and from where you can get it....
Anyway...it worked.
