    I was recently trying to uninstall my AVG Virus scan program and during the installation
    I received this error message - Error: checking of state of the item file link _ All_Users_AVGW_Desk failed. The directory is not empty. (145)

    Download the latest AVG Free installation package from AVG Free 7.5
    Run the AVG Free install file and choose the Uninstall option and follow the setup wizard, when you get to the part to remove user settings, select it.
    Restart your computer and if you want to reinstall, reinstall AVG using the setup file you got and update it.
    You might want to try all this in safe mode.
