One of two this error could be related to---> Hardware which is probably the problem.
Software --> Windows installation issue, did you have any errors while installing Windows on your computer?

Also XP might having a problem with Services.exe preventing the app. from initializing, the recommended action for this is to do a repair install, but for more details look here:-

The Hardware might be related to memory issue, have you tried to swap both memory sticks and get one from a friend,

You should only have one anti virus programme on your computer. More than one leads to conflict.
Could this be your problem?

I do not have more than one av running. After installing, either will not run, just the message (0xc0000006) failed to initialize...??

If the error number: '0xc0000006' is coming from Microsoft, then you could do a search on their Knowledge Base on this error code.

What Firewall are you using ? You could try disabling it prior to installing AVG/Avast, as it may be the cause of the program not installing. If it then installs, then remember to re-enable the Firewall.
