Did you download it directly from the AVG site? If not, it's possible you downloaded an archived version from a 3rd party site that doesn't have the latest updates. The latest version of AVG Free (available via this link) is 8.0.173 (October 1st).

Hope this helps :)

I have Windows XP on a fairly old computer (HP xt963). The MS Removal Tool(?) keeps popping up and saying my computer is infected with spyware/malware/etc. I am short on cash so I figured I would just...


When you power on your computer, in bios screen, press repeatedly F8 key until on screen it's appeared options to choose normal start or safe mode. From that list choose "Last known good configuration", after that you can choose an earlier restore point for your computer, before MS Removal Tool have been instaled.

I have a trogen virus and no money can I fix it for free?


You can use free antivirus like Avira, Avg or Avast, they are as effective as full version antivirus if updated regularly and registered successfully.

You can download::
1. Avast Free

2. Avg Free

4. Avira Free


Don't install two antivirus at a time, if you are installing one of them or if there's any antivirus program installed on your computer, please uninstall and install the new one, otherwise you may have another problem with your problem.

First install Avast and run a full system scan, then check the scanned result, if you are sure that those trojans or virus etc..etc.. are removed, you are done, no need to uninstall and reinstall the other, or if you still doubt, you can try with the other two after the first one is uninstalled.

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

My desktop security says virus protection is turned off. the updates and firewall say on. i have tried everything that i know of to turn on. even the right click on the icon on the bottom by the clock. i...


First make sure your AVG is up-to-date...then to get rid of the popup click on the red sheild that opens the security center. Click on "Recommendations" and then check the checkbox that says, "I have antivirus software I will monitor on my own". that should get rid of the red shield on your taskbar. If updating your AVG does not work, try using Avast Free Antivirus...It's free and works alot better than AVG. Hope this helps.

I need to restore my computer so I can get online to get antiviru


download AVG on someone elses computer, put it on a disk. uninstall your old antivirus and install AVG. AVG is free and very good. (google AVG).
If your computer is not online, you are not exposed to much malicious software. I certainly thing restoring your computer will do nothing to reactivate your old antivirus.

Hi there my name is Alex and im here to help you with this problem

Is the antivirus that was downloaded called win antivirus 2008? This is a virus its self and causes many problems even to the desktop. What you can try doing is restarting your computer and running Safe mode by pressing F8 just before windows boots and selecting safe mode. Whilst in safe mode, the internet is not available and some drivers are disabled which means you should be able to uninstall any programs without problem

If you are experiencing problems downloading AVG updates using the internet, you can download the updates manually from this website http://free.avg.com/download Here you will find a basic guide of how to install this.

I hope this can be some assistance to you. If you experience any problems, please let me know

Chances are, the software that is already in your computer will be able to connect to its website and after entering an authorization code provided to you when you ordered it, the software should update itself. Otherwise, contact Norton's website directly.
