AVG8.0 driving me mad!

Unfortunately AVG seemed to be slowing my computer down and I wanted to revert to 7.5 (which I still had an installation copy for).
However it didn't work and Windows Security keeps telling me I'm not protected.
Decided to do a complete uninstall and start again!
However, I cannot seem to get the uninstall done - I go to 'Start->Progs->AVG8->Uninstall, but get "Installation Failed, 1 error occurred"
When I click "Details" I get

"Installer initialization failed due to the following error:
Error: Initialization of the setup data file failed.
Opening of the setup data file "C" failed.
Error 0xe001042c"

Tried Add/Remove in Control panel, and get exactly the same. Tried System Restore without success.
Any ideas? I just want rid of the thing, completely, but it wont let me!
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

The uninstall file will be in there.
