What is error "The AVG8 Network Redirector service failed to start due to the following error: "

An error keeps recurring in the System event log:

The AVG8 Network Redirector service failed to start due to the following error:
The system cannot find the file specified.  

Event ID 7000 - Service Control Manager

When I Google this all I find are virus related issues, particularly the Antivirus 2008 issue, and an endless stream of Hijaak this logs. AVG is no help. Any ideas? Thanks much.

the error means that the service failed to start because one required component (either the service itself or a component is missing)

If I were you I would first ensure the infection is gone , Hijack this logs ,MAlwarebytes antimalware scanner , Follow up with Combofix scans & logs if needed , Then once you are  positive the cause of the issue is resolved , you can reinstall AVG fixing the corrupt / missing component.
