Did you try uninstalling the program and then downloading and installing the new version? That may just be the easiest way around the issue.

Try running the removal tool to completely get rid of it, then try reloading it. Also be sure that you have all your Windows updates done, the date and time are correct, and that you have no other antivirus programs installed. Then get the newest version of AVG and try to install it.

simple you have a virus on the PC that is blocking it.

I agree with Axalon, on a fresh install I couldn't get AVG to install the first time until I used the AVG removal tool. After that it went in no problem. Weird issue but easy fix.
