You need to use AVG REMOVAL TOOL 32BIT OR 64BIT Depending which you have downloaded! Reboot. Download the latest Avast free setup file from avast web site the full version & try again. RPC Errors are caused by remains of antivirus programs references in the windows registry.

Depending what antivirus you want to use AVG Free does not have a web shield and is very bad as i had viruses get through AVG when on the web in the past even when fully updated. Ditched AVG 4 Years ago and run Avast ever since as offers much more shields and protection & antirootkit AVG Does not for free! ;D

If you had any antivirus before AVG OR AVAST. You will need to fully remove these also. Norton/Symantic & Macafee have removal tools also!
