In order to solve this issue, you need to uninstall your Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable with Add or Remote Programs feature and reboot your computer. Also remove the AVG antivirus using AVG Removal tool. Download and reinstall Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable and AVG from Microsoft and AVG Technologies official web pages respectively and restart the computer. The error will disappear and you will be able to use the antivirus without any problems.
