Error AVG Antivirus: Test cannot be started…


Hello there,



I think that Grisoft are still working through issues with version 8. I have seen one get past antivirus whilst another hasn’t many times, but yet the damage done by making the wrong choice is always too late. AVG is in my opinion the best however, and I even still have version 3.2 here on floppy. I suggest you to  delete and uninstall the  AVG Antivirus that you are using right now and then download and reinstall the current version of AVG antivirus. Make sure to restart your computer after reinstalling the latest version. If the problem still pop up after reinstalling latest version please contact AVG antivirus customer support. Thanks and good luck.

It seems there is a problem with your AVG antivirus. Try installing the latest. Download the free version of Revo Uninstaller and install it. Once installed, start Revo Uninstaller then select your AVG antivirus among the applications and click “Uninstall”. Follow the normal uninstall process. When you are prompted to restart the computer, click to restart later.

When uninstall is complete, click “Scan” to scan your computer for any leftover files and delete everything it finds. This removes everything the program created on your computer. When it is finished, close Revo Uninstaller then restart the computer. After booting, download the free version of CCleaner and install it. Once installed, start CCleaner and clean your system.

When it is finished, close CCleaner and download the latest AVG Antivirus and install it. See if this works. The latest AVG antivirus supports Windows XP Service Pack 3, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8.x, and Windows 10. If you want to convert CCleaner to Pro, download the codes and follow the instructions.
