Help please. I was doing this for my teenages on to an old second hand comp. What does it mean and how can I fix it? Thanks.

Download direct from avg, the file may be corrupt.

Or an existing infection is preventing install. Try house call for an online scan.
Also, download malwarebytes and scan with that.

"3rd party redistributables" - disscussed here

otherwise, use Avast or Panda. AVG is usually my last choice

Yep, free AVG seems to be more malware now days than the malware it tries to stop. You just end up getting spamed to buy the full version constantly.

mind you avast isn't much better

I find panda cloud is the best, but you will still get the occasional popup to buy the "full" version

Same same.
