Which .exe did you try?  There are several you could be referring to.

If AVG said it's installed it means that the registry is not clean. Are you sure u did correctly the manual remove? Try te clean again the registry then reboot in safe mode and try installing AVG

My concern is that I have just recently UN-installed a corrupt version of NAV 10.x as well. My un-install seemed to go well, but as this is my EXCHANGE SERVER (Win2k3, Exchange 2k3) I am wondering if I should also run the un-install utility to be sure that I erradicated everything...?
