    Greetings daviditfc,

    AVG 2014 is the current version. If you have previously installed AVG on this system, first use the AVG Removal Tool before attempting to install another version.

    AVG Removal Tool(32 bit) - http://download.avg.com/filedir/util..._2013_3341.exe
    AVG Removal Tool(64 bit) - http://download.avg.com/filedir/util..._2013_3341.exe

    Links for the current version are below.

    AVG 2014(32 bit) - Download AVG Free Edition 2014.0.4259 (32-bit) - FileHippo.com
    AVG 2014(64 bit) - Download AVG Free Edition 2014.0.4259 (64-bit) - FileHippo.com

    If you receive an error during installation please post the details in your next post.
