I have just installed Avast anti virus and have tried to remove AVG Free, without success. When I try to use Add/Remove programs, I get the following error message: 'Installer initialization failed due to following error: Error: initialization of the language file "C:\Program Files\Grisoft\AVG Free\setup.Ins" failed. General failure.
I recently carried out a system restore, don't know if this has anything to do with it.
Can anyone please help me with this problem.

If the Avast is working properly then don't worry too much.

If you carried out a system restore after uninstalling AVG and installing Avast then that could well cause difficulty

In that case, ensure you have the download files for Avast programme AND latest virus definitions. Then disconnect from the internet. Then disable system restore. Then uninstall AVG again so far as you can, if necessary by deleting the programme folder, then install Avast by installing from the .exe file, then click on the virus definition file zip file

The reboot and see how things go. Any problem post back
