AVG 9 – Install Issues

I like AVG, it’s free, quiet, small and keeps me safe. But sometimes it can be frustrating to install. If you ever had any problems upgrading from version 8 or 8.5 to the latest release (V9), then check this out:

That will help you get rid of/work around the permissions/registry problems that sometimes crop up.

The message that you will see most often when there is a problem is this one:

“Local machine: installation failed
Installation:
Error: Action failed for registry key HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows: creating registry key….
Access is denied.”

Don’t forget that the info above is only for versions 8.0. 8.5 and 9.0. Versions 7.0 and 7.5 are not supported anymore and you will need to take some different steps – have a look here for more:
