Uninstall current AVG. 
You must first download AVG uninstall/cleanup utility here: AVG Remover 2012 (32 bit & 64 bit version).
 
For Vista or Windows 7, remember to right-click on it and choose "Run as Administrator".
 
AVG remover must be finished completely – stopping of AVG services may take more time.
 
Remove these folders after restart:
 
Windows XP
C:Program FilesAVG or C:Program files(x86)AVG (for 64bit OS)
C:Documents and settingsAll usersApplication dataAVG8
C:Documents and settingsAll usersApplication dataAVG9
C:Documents and settingsAll usersApplication dataAVG10
C:Documents and settingsAll usersApplication dataAVG2012
 
Windows Vista/7
C:Program FilesAVG or C:Program files(x86)AVG (for 64bit OS)
C:ProgramDataAVG8
C:ProgramDataAVG9
C:ProgramDataAVG10
C:ProgramDataAVG2012
C:Users<user>AppDataRoamingAVG8
C:Users<user>AppDataRoamingAVG9
C:Users<user>AppDataRoamingAVG10
C:Users<user>AppDataRoamingAVG2012
 
 
Then download the latest AVG offline installation file here http://free.avg.com/ww-en/download.prd-afh and run it.
 
Follow the wizard to install AVG 2012.
