an easier way to remove avg than response 3 is just to uninstall AVG using revo uninstaller.

That will do the job in just a couple of minutes, no searching, deleteing etc...it will allow you to remove all instances of AVG from the registry in one easy sweep.

have you properly cleaned out your previous AV's on your PC? Norton & McAfee leave tons of registry items that will not allow any other AV to run properly.
Another suggestion is that I would rather use Avast than AVG, much better in my opinion ;-)

HOW TO FIX 0xC0070643 Error in AVG 2011.

Can't remove old avg applications because of this error then do not fret here is the answer.
Log onto your computer in Safe Mode. Right click on Start button and select explore. Scroll down to Program files and open and then scroll down to AVG Folder. Double click on this folder. You may see other folders with AVG 8 for example. if you right click on it and see if this will delete. (I had AVG 8 9 AND 10 ON MINE) One of the folders it will not let you delete it. Once you have removed the folder/s that can be deleted open up the folder that cannot. Delete all that you can in this folder either by deleting one by one or in little chunks until you are only left with a handful. These are the ones that will not delete until you do the following. Open up the Task Manager by right clicking on the blue bar at the bottom and select Processes. Now end the AVG Processes and then go back into the folder and delete the rest of the files. Once done you can then delete the AVG Folder. Close this down and then restart your computer and you will be able to install AVG 2011.

Ok, you are confusing me...you said you could not remove old versions of AVG. When you use revo, you would see those versions to remove.

Yep ran into this problem myself with earlier AVG 2011 versions. The best solution to fix this error is to use their remover tool that just came out a couple days ago for AVG 2011 products. The AVG 2011 remover tool will also work with older AVG versions as well. I'd advise you to run the tool in safe mode first, then you should be good to go.

Thanks, for your detailed explanation on how to remove the old AVG applications. I did what you said, but still have one file left and I continue to get this message:

"Cannot delete avgse.dll: access is denied. Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use.

Nothing I do works to remove this, and it is preventing me from installing the new AVG 2011. Any help you can give me is surely appreciated.

Thanks!

Thanks XpUser! The Revo rocks! I only wish I found your note 4 hours ago. Don't waste your time with the AVG uninstaller. I had a problem with the AVG Identity Protection, then couldn't uninstall, reinstall, etc. Moving to Avast...

I'm under the impression that most of these people that are commenting haven't taken the time to try revo...makes me chuckle because I use revo for all the stubborn progs that won't uninstall properly, at least you get to remove all registry entries with it
;-)
Makes things so much easier at times.

Thanks for the Revo suggestion. But, I had already deleted ALL references to AVG8, 9 and 10. So, Revo found no entry for AVG?? I tried using the new AVG Uninstaller earlier today without any success. The error log has all sorts of entries about missing entries, etc in the registry. Everytime I try installing I still get the same 0xC0070643 Error in AVG 2011. My registry is messed up, it appears. I may try Avast. In use AVG on my laptop and desktop. This is on my wife's computer and I have spent most of today trying to fix hers. It started out with an error on her AVG 9 version not being abole to get updates since 10/25/10.

DUDE!!! Thanks for the tip on Revo. It works better than the PC Tools Registry Mechanic which I will no longer waste my money on. This was some slick sh*t, no doubt. I had the 2011 AVG trial version but it just wouldn't uninstall. They (AVG) have become a monster. They used to be the best with a small footprint, used little resources, and great customer service. Now they are the bully of the AV world. Use Avast free (if you're cheap) but support them and it's better. Hell if you can't justify the cost in your mind, ask yourself if you had to pay the same per hour to fix your car as your computer, would it be worth the $30 or so. The choice is yours.

yeah, I'm having the same problem as some of the others, I downloaded the revo tool and it's not finding AVG (which I've tried using the native uninstaller with the same error code several times)

I'm pretty sure I got a bad install of avg, I've run it fine for at least 6 months before and now, after a fresh install (after reloading windows 7, don't ask, it's a long story, it also has little to do with the OS itself or software on it) I installed it and was immediately given a problem. I restarted like it asked, then, after restarting, it asked me to restart... again. It took me 2 more restarts for it to finally realize I had. Now it won't update and tells me my system clock is incorrect (which it isn't) so now when I try to uninstall, I get this error. and I think my attempts to uninstall this software have resulted in revo not being able to detect it

nevermind, I think my registry is just shot (my disc was scratched)

thanks anyways

I had the same error code. I fond I still had AVG PC Tuneup installed. I uninstalled PC Tuneup with Revo Uninstaller. I could not use Revo Uninstaller to uninstall AVG because it was not installed so I used the AVG remover file http://www.avg.com/ww-en/download-t... I then rebooted. After rebooting I ran "Everything Search Program" to search for "avg" & erase any files left on my hard drive. Then I used Regseeker to search for "avg" in the registry & deleted any registry entry for "avg".

I rebooted again & AVG installed fine.

I find AVG causes my system to run slow on my 500MB ram HP Pavilion, but turning off ID Protection & Resident Shield solved that problem. I right clicked on the components & chose ignore component state so a flag was not showing on the tray icon. Nice that you can turn these components off.

Threatfire was still loading in my startup so I uninstalled it. I also uninstalled Windows Defender. All anti-virus programs should be un-installed so there is no conflict with AVG which can slow down your PC. I use Spybot because it is the best at reporting & disabling startup entries & a good second opinion adware remover, but make sure all tweaks & teatimer are not enabled. Also do not immunize with Spybot. If you have immunized, un-imunize by clicking on undo in the immunize set-up.

I only use Revo Uninstaller for all un-installs along with Everything Search & Regseeker to completely un-install all programs & clean the registry. Works great.

Search Everything is a fantastic file finder. Finds any file on your hard drive instantly as you type without indexing. You can use wildcards, boolean logic, sort by name or folder. If you enter nothing it lists every file on you hard drive instantly.

Great recommendations on Revo and Avast - many thanks.

For anyone is who getting the AVG "Trial Dialog" box on start-up, but no AVG showing up on the Revo list of programs . . . choose "Hunter Mode" in Revo and then "shoot" the "Trial Dialog" box. It will find the AVG files for you. Just make sure you click all of them because they appear in a number of sub-folders.

Good luck.

I have tried several times to do the avg 2011. Still gives me tons of error codes 0xc0070643 also error 1935. Any other sugesstions to try. I did download the microsoft security essential, do I even need avg now?

I had the same issue - My fix

Make sure that all AVG services are stopped
Click start -> Run -> services.msc and stop AVG services

End Task any AVG processors running in the background
Press Ctrl+Alt+Delete and click on processors and end any processors starting with AVG

Try reinstalling the new version or try uninstalling the old version now.

Jfteksp1,
I agree with XpUser4Real on this one. AVG has a way lower detection rates and is a dog to install/uninstall.You only have to look at pc forums, to see there are no threads posted about Avast, as for AVG the opposite is true. Loads and loads of unhappy AVG users.
The older version of AVG was better than the new release, but still not as good as Avast.

I agree with Jfteksp1 Avast just ain't cuttin it. Avg free has been way better, but it does have some install problems. Most of the time the install problems are an indication that there is still something wrong with the machine in general. Thus it forces you to fix the problem. But in times where I give up... I just load avast and get the customer out the door... lol

Sorry to inform you that NO I repeat NO antivirus software is foolproof and they ALL eventually let some sort of malware,spyware,trojan or virus in eventually.The best solution is to update whatever software you choose to use on a daily basis and download from reputable sources.Stay away from shady websites and wear rubber gloves when using your keyboard(lol).Let it be known to all that if any one antivirus program or combination thereof could remove any and all threats then there would be NO money to be made for any of the companies out there that live from your contributions.
The only safe computer is a computer that has NO contact with the internet or outside sources(no usb keys,stray software etc.)

Good luck and happy computing.

Also, to follow up, if you remove that "DeathStar" HDD, you will likely be fine. Any other would be a definate improvement.
As far as AVAST, consider what your old pappy always told you, "FREE" stuff is mostly worth slightly LESS than you have paid for it!

Now, Enough of This!
