Did you uninstall AVG?  Try using their removal tool first, then try to install avast.

For generic computer (not avast) problems, you can also visit my forum for help:

help us to help you, as there is no information to work with.

Why wouldn't it install, e.g. what errors ?

As scythe944 mentions not having uninstalled your previous AV is a normal culprit and we are seeing more remnants left behind with AVG8 even after uninstall, than with previous versions of it.
