    Just curious......
    Do you stay up to date on versions of AVG (FREE?) ? I download a new version just about once a month.
    I've been using it on every build of Windows 10 since 9926, with no installation problems.

    I've used AVG FREE versions just about as long as they have been in the AV business. That's quite a while.
    And I've never had a version that failed to install on any of my (many) computers, with every OS from XP to Win-10.

    When I installed 10162 as a upgrade, it disabled several things on my little HP Laptop that I'm using for testing (64bit).
    One was System Restore and the other one was AVG. I had not restored AVG till just now, with a Repair Install and it went off without a hitch. But be aware, there are two distinct versions of AVG. There is the X86 (32 bit) version and the 64 bit version.
    It's important to use the correct one for the hardware and OS you're installing it on. I keep both versions on my Utilities disk, since I work with so many different computers. (I'm in the business).

    Download a fresh copy of AVG, like from File Hippo and try the install again.
    If you have a corrupted install, you might need to use the AVG Removal Tool to clean house before attempting the re-install.

    Good Luck!

    There is a way to install Free avg on windows 10 but not sure if it works for the current build, I haven't tested it yet. I had issue myself trying to install it with earlier builds.

    Thought I'd test one of my spare F-Secure licences on W10 and it's working fine. Banking Protection deosn't seem to kick in when it should but I'll get to the bottom of that. Otherwise all looks good.

    Hello guys,

    Recently, I saw many people asking about the working anti-viruses for Windows 10 Technical Preview, so I decided to create a thread and share the information. Because Sharing is Caring!
    Here is list of some anti-viruses which are tested and found working on Windows 10 Technical Preview. [Note: Some of them might lack in their features]

    • Bitdefender antivirus free edition
    • Mcafee Antivirus Free
    • Avira Antivirus Free
    • ESET Smart Security
    • Avast 15
    • Webroot Secure Anywhere Endpoint Protection
    • AVG Antivirus Free | Might work

    If you know any, feel free to share with us. I will update this thread.

    Lets not forget my all-time favorite AV suite, Hitman Pro by SurfRight. It's passive cloud based protection that catches things other AV software leaves behind.

    Panda Antivirus is a good one, compatible with al NT operating systems. Currently it's the best Antivirus available, in my own opinion of course. Cheers!

    Bitdefender Anti-virus Plus 2015 won't work after the upgrade. You need to run the update then check events. Once it tells you the update requires a reboot do it and Bitdefender will be working.
