Hello John. I would request you to run AVG remover tool based on your OS (32-bit or 64-bit) to completely remove AVG and then re install. To determine whether your OS is a 32-bit or 64-bit, please click on this link. http://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/827218

To download AVG Remover tool for 32-bit: http://download.avg.com/filedir/util/support/avg_remover_stf_x86_2015_5501.exe
To download AVG Remover tool for 64-bit: http://download.avg.com/filedir/util/support/avg_remover_stf_x64_2015_5501.exe

Folks, I faced the same issue, when I was broswing this thread, remembered that I did not "Run as Administrator". I did that and the exception message did not show up and install is going through.

Right click on the AVG...exe and select "Raun As Administrator"

Thanks, Vasu
