Downloading AVG Free Edition

by J1cmpbll / October 1, 2009 4:45 AM PDT

When at the end of the installation this pops up.

Installer initialization failed due to the following error:
Warning: Internal error. Dialog with id "AvgDetectedDlg" was not found in the setup.

Any ideas?

Downloading AVG Free Edition
by Ondrej_AVG / October 1, 2009 5:11 AM PDT

could you please check this:
- open menu Start -> Run -> enter "%tmp%" and confirm OK
- find folder named "AVG Download manager" (or similar) and remove it
- run the installation through download manager again

Was the installation successful?

Do you have installed AVG Standalone LinkScanner before?

Hi akmehmet53,

The Ukash Virus family is wide spread in the latest weeks. Please be informed that AVG protects you from all known variants of this virus. Procedure mentioned in the article should work.

Please describe your query in more details if this is not what you were looking for.
