Try this.

Click Start button
Go to Run and type "regedit" (type without quotes)

a) use Ctrl + F and type AVG8

or

a) directly go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE key in the registry and you will find AVG folder, remove that . It will work.

Be careful and do it if you are fully confident of what you are doing. I did this and it solved my problem

***

Hope it helps.

Removing from the registry doesn't always work. If you get an error message when trying to delete it, right-click on the item & check the permissions. Make sure all of the boxes are checked. Then you can delete them.
