    So I've tried installing AVG 8.0 a couple times and every time its stop at the point where it starts the tray service and then fails installing. I tried cleaning the registry and reinstalling but that didn't work either. I'm running windows 7 x86 and here are my system specs.

    2 - Intel Pentium 4 Processor 3.2 GHz
    3 hard drives(200gb,300gb, and 80gb) Windows 7 is on the 300gb
    2Gb DDR Memory
    Ati Radeon HD 4650 512mb Graphics Card
    550W power supply

    That's about all that's important probably.

    Thanks for any help. :)

    Btw I used the same installer on a friend's 64bit windows 7 and it worked fine...

    try running it in compatibility mode Windows VISTA. If that doesnt work then you have something on the computer interefering with it.

    I tried that. And I tried installing after a fresh install. Zak also tried it. He once stuck his fist...

    Not very much lemme go check.

    Utorrent
    7zip
    Flashplayer 10
    DivX
    Fruity Loops/FL Studio
    CCleaner
    Mozilla Firefox
    Object Dock(After I tried installation)
    Registry Mechanic
    Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable

    That's all I have installed.

    I hate this stupid forum. It merges double posts which means even though you have new content it doesn't bump it up on the thread list. Anyways I found a solution. You have to download the trial version and install it with a trial Serial Number and then after it installs you can activate it with your serial number. And now this great fix won't get noticed because of the stupid merging thing. :mad:

    No Problem

    I am using AVG on 7 and have not had any issues at all. Of course I am using the 64 bit version.

    This part got edited into my last post, but I found a solution to the problem.

    You have to install using the free version serial number and then activate with your serial number after you have completely installed it. :)

    I done an upgrade to Windows 7 x64 from Vista x64 and AVG 8 threw a firewall driver error at me, but a quick re-install fixed this problem. Not had any problems with it since.
