AVG 2011 won't isntall

I as well can't get the new free version of AVG 2011 to install. On top of this, it has completely destroyed the previous version of AVG, and my computer's ability to restore to a previous point. I'm really annoyed!! This version of AVG has seriously screwed up my computer! Oh, and I have tried to re-do the installion multiple times without effect. I would like to know how to get this fixed. If anyone could help me that would be great.
