AVG Protection won't install - Error code 0xc0070643

I have tried repeatedly to install AVG and it always gets to about 98% and fails. The last error code was 0xc0070643.
In order to try to reinstall I went through the recommended process of updatung the registry and removing the previous program install. It won't install.

Hello Sarah.

I am sorry to hear about the inconvenience caused. Do you have any older version of AVG or any other anti virus program installed on your PC? I'd suggest you to visit http://www.avg.com/tools#tba2 and click on "AVG Remover" to download the remover tool and run it once. Then try to install AVG again. Please, feel free to let me know if you require any further assistance. Thank you. Avinash.

Hello Ed,

We understand it is disappointing when you receive error message during installation.
Could you please confirm whether you have any other security programs like McAfee installed in your computer?
This error generally occurs when there is any traces of older version of AVG or any other conflicting antivirus in your computer.
Thank you.
