Interference from another AV program, most likely Symantec, is known
issue mentioned in AVG forum. You have Norton AV? Is it uninstalled? If
so, get the uninstall utility from Symantec (that removes all traces)
and try again.

Is AVG still free?
I read from 2007 it would not be.

I have AVG  Free edition, but do not know which version it is, can I tell
somehow?
It says free on all my listings of it but the message at startup of the
computer which is counting down the number of days left, which is 2 this am.

Open "AVG Free Control Center" or "AVG Free Edition Test Center".  Click on
"Information" at the top of the window, then "About AVG Free".  Either the
"Program" or "Version" tabs will list the Program Version.  Mine says
7.5.432, Virus Base 268.16.7/619, Release date 1/7/2007 6:29 PM.  With the
countdown timer, it sounds like you may have the TRIAL version rather than
the FREE version???  I've never seen the trial version so can't say for
sure.  Did you just install it about a month ago???  They do make the free
version a bit more difficult to find than the paid and trial versions.

Yes it does say 7.5 Trial there and it is about a month ago I got it.

Do I wait to see what happens in 2 days?

Don't pay him any attention.  Really, it's up to you, if you plan on
buying AVG, trailing other software, or uninstalling AVG Trial and
installing AVG Free edition (free.grisoft.com).  Personally, I prefer
Avast to AVG, but depending on the machine and its available resources I
may chose AVG over Avast (for example, my family's machine uses AVG so
that they don't have to hassle with the registration thingie, plus they
were already familiar with it before I discovered Avast, not to mention
that there machine has limited resources compared to mine).  Anyway,
it's entirely up to you really.

Though Dustbin is just about always "over the top", his point is, you
seem to think you have the FREE edition of AVG, but you don't -- you
have the TRIAL edition for the pay version.

The clue should be that he is a useless idiot!!  This is NOT our Dustin,
but some jerk who seems to get mindless amusement out of posting drivel
and insults.

Ignore him.  If I hadn't seen your reply, I wouldn't have known the
a$$hole was still around.  Killfiles are a wonderful thing.

I wouldn't wait until the trial expires. Seems like you have two options:

1.  You can convert your trial version to the paid version (although I don't
see the advantage) by purchasing the program.  You'll get a license number
to use to activate the paid version without uninstalling the trial. See
http://www3.grisoft.com/doc/7/lng/us/tpl/tpl01/fht/7.464-7.436?num=61#faq_61
.
2.  Download the free version (or what ever other antivirus program you
choose to use), uninstall the AVG trial version, and install the new
program.
