First upgrade Firefox to 3.0.1... this can be done through the Firefox browser under Help "Check for Updates". Download a fresh version of AVG 8.0.138 from Grisoft:


Uninstall the present AVG 8 and anything that may be left over from AVG 7.5. Check the programs folder for any remnants and remove them.

Finally install the fresh AVG 8.0.138 download. I have no issues with AVG 8.0.138 using with Vista.

Hope this helps.
