    AVG issues? Error 0x80070005

    I am not able to un-install AVG in my system. I am using AVG 7.5. I am planing to upgrade the same to AVG 8.0 but it is not working. When I try to run the upgrade I am getting a error - 0x80070005. I just know this error. What does the error refer too and what should I do to fix the same.

    Looks like some permission issue. Are you trying to run the same under Admin account. Because AVG is not able to make changes to your system registry because of which you are getting this error. You cannot modify Windows registry in two cases. One if you do not have admin rights to run setup and second if there is a malware in your system. You can try a bootable virus scanner disk to locate malware.
