Oops, should have listened to my own advice.
I made the attempt to download AVG 2013 as noted previously, with same results as before, with added attraction of the required confirmation number not being recognized... or something similar. I then recalled being asked for my email address for confirmation email (presumably with that number)... never received. One positive change (?) was getting moved to the install wizard. Seemed to take forever to remove 2013 AVG... could uninstall in the usual sense, since the installation was blocked at what appeared to be about 80%, but .exe and other large files were in Programs, appearing to be complete (likely waiting for that magic number, at least that is my best guess). I deleted each item individually, then restored to before attempted install, brought Avast! back up and have my fingers crossed.
Again, always pleased with AVG in the past. The fact that I was able to update to 2013 on my wife's computer suggests the problem may be with something I did... I wondered this evening if maybe I attempted to uninstall 2012 before updating versus a fresh install of 2013. In any case, I am looking forward to a new computer (as well as winning the lottery) and being able to do a clean install of 2013. Thanks for the suggestions.
