Downloading AVG Free Edition - New!

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?


This worked perfect. Thanks to the above and you for your help.
