    I cannot open AVG user interface.

    I get the following message if I try to uninstall or install a fresh version.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

    Local machine: installation failed
    Installation:
    Error: Action failed for directory update: setting directory access rights....
    Invalid parameter specified.

    -------------------------------------------------------------
    Any suggestions?

    tip : you'd be surprised what useful info you get from googling the exact sentence of your error message :wink:

    AVG update: I managed to get rid of it. However when I tried to get a fresh copy I got a similar error message. Giving up I got Avast and found a couple of viruses.

    Indeed, Avast Antivirus is the same thing I use.
