    I was upgrading to AVG 8.5 and the download failed. My system will no longer
    allow me to run or save any setup files from their site or any others. And,
    I believe the email scanner included with the software has failed in some way
    that I can no longer open or save attachments from my email. I've tried to
    uninstall AVG but it states "Installation Failed" details...Installer
    initialization failed due to following error:
    Error: @AvgErrorCode_0x0253 %FILE% = "C:\Program Files\AVG\AVG8"

    Any help?????

    AVG doesn't offer support for the free product. Really nice huh!!! Last
    night I found and unzipped the ver 8.5 setup file (which is what bombed the
    first time). It worked and then allowed me the option for uninstalling the
    software, which I did and all works perfect now. Thanks for all your replies
    and help, it's greatly appreciated.

    Check out Clamwin for Open source Anti Virus. AVG eventually starts
    bugging you to upgrade to their commercial version.

  6. AVG 9 is now available.

    I have the same problem, but then it started when I tried to update to AVG 9.0. Trying to remove AVG 8.5 I received the same error message
    Error: @AvgErrorCode_0x0253 %FILE% = "C:\Program Files\AVG\AVG8" @AvgErrorCode_0x0020

    Tried downloading the AVG -remover, but didnt work. Also tried downloading all versions of AVG-virusscanner, didnt work. Already started Windows vista in the safe mode and then tried downloading the AVG-remover, but still no luck.

    how can I solve this???
