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

I kept getting notices I needed to update AVG and when I finally did it I am getting a message that it did not install correctly. I took it off and reinstalled with the same results. I seem to remember...


First, I would recommend you go here to download the latest version. Make sure all AVG components are uninstalled then install the AVG you just downloaded. If it still doesn't work, download a program called CCleaner here. Use this to clean uninstall AVG and clean your registry. Then install the AVG you just downloaded again and it should work. I hope this helps and have a nice day!

Advantages and Disadvantages of AVG Anti-Virus


<p>AVG offers a number of compelling features and the right technology to keep your PC protected. As one of the best antivirus software products reviewed, AVG offers a great solution that delivers advanced protection and simple use. But apart from these AVG have some advantages and Disadvantages.<br /> <p> <br /> <p>Advantages<br /> <ul> <li> Protection: - AVG Anti-Virus is fully armed to protect your computer from threats from a number of angles. The software includes antivirus and antispyware protection, as well as complete online protection from harmful sites and downloads.</li> <li> Ease of Installation: - AVG Anti-Virus is easy to download and install. The installation is straightforward and doesn't require a restart. And while it's not the fastest, it's relatively quick and performs an update immediately.</li> <li> Improved features: - Though you can download AVG protection software freely, but the security software is by no means ineffective.</li> <li> It's improved features like Link Scanner, ID Protection makes it the most effective scanner.</li></ul> <p> <br /> <p>Disadvantages:-<br /> <p>When uninstalling AVG version 7 or 8 in Windows XP/Vista and attempting to install other anti-virus programs such as Kaspersky Anti-Virus or Norton Antivirus, the latter programs will not install.<br /> <p>Instead, they show an "incompatible software installed" error even if the uninstalled software has been removed using the control panel.<br /> <p> <br /> <p>This happens because software that updates and changes can add registry entries that were not added when the product was originally installed.<span> </span>A signature update dated November 9, 2008, crippled some computers, as it allowed the software to treat "user32.dll", a major component of Windows XP/Vista, as a Trojan and advised users to delete it. Users who deleted the file in question were put on a continuous reboot loop. The problem was rectified a few days later with a new signature database and further safeguards were added to the product.

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.

I prefer AVG all the time and i recommended it to so many frineds too ..but sometimes its really hard to break a virus code. Anyways one solution i always use. Unistall AVG from your system, if your system is running fine right now download Norton Trial version. It has full fledged features for 15 days. Use this Trial version to remove the virus and then uninstall it
Reinstall AVG again
You can try other antivirus like Avast, McCaffee etc in same way in place of norton
Hope it helps !!
If nothing works try to restore your system in some back date in safe mode.
Good luck !!
