According to the FAQ at

"After restarting, AVG gives an 'Error in AVG core'. What next ?

This problem is caused by an incorrect or damaged installation. You must
uninstall AVG and then reinstall it. If the problem persists contact
technical support .... "

I don't know if this is applicable to your situation or not. As you have the
free version, you're knackered for technical support from this site. Try a
re-install ?
