No worries.

That error message looks like it means some part of AVG is corrupted.

Hi,AVG has been a bit of a problem lately we have stopped installing it for the moment even paying for Norton or McAfee for our home clients. You need to uninstall it and start again do this:-
Delete the Grisoft directory in C:\Program Files\Grisoft

1. Download the latest AVG Free installation package from [free.grisoft.com]
2. Run the AVG Free install file
3. Choose the Uninstall option and follow the setup wizard, when you get to the part to remove user settings, select it.
4. Restart your computer then...
5. Now reinstall AVG using the setup file you got in step 1 and update it.
