Hi everybody, i had the free version of AVG installed but everytime it did
an automatic update it required me to restart my computer. I decided to
uninstall AVG then re-install it. Trouble is that now when I attempt
installation, the installer falls over with the error message:-
Local machine: installation failed
        Error: Action failed for file avg7dos.lng: creating file....
            Changing language to 67698688 failed.
                General failure.

Anybody seen this error before. I have tried System Restore, but SR wont let
me restore to an earlier time. I was wondering if perhaps the Windows Auto
Update of the Java runtime Environment has caused this because there is a
foreign languages update in there somewhere. I have also just installed SP2.
I was getting the restart error before SP2 though.

Hmm. SP2 can cause some problems. I take it your running XP??
All i can suggest is back everything up, re-install XP. Patch it up to
SP2 *then* install all your apps.
Be sure to install a Firewall program (unless you have a h/w firewall)
before connecting to the internet though.
