I am trying to reinstall AVG but get the following notice:
Local machine: installation failed
Initialization:
Error: Checking of state of the item registry key HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run failed.
The configuration registry database is corrupt. (1009)

What can I do about it?

Search for a file called Easyav.exe.

Is it there? As Netsky.s a worm puts this command in under this entry in the registry. And will most probably screw the registry up.

Cannot find easyav and AVG still runs but it does not install on startup like it used to do. I have done a full scan and not found any viruses.

I think my problems started when I installed Adobe Reader 6.1 which I have since uninstalled
