It should be automatic. See if you can switch it to auto install for the updates and shut off and turn back on. Give it time for it to do all of it's startup routine. Try to download again under the new settings if you need to.

How to delete all the viruses from a dell laptop inspiron 15-3521


Start in SAFE MODE with NETWORKING (Click F8 when booting) and then go online to malwarebytes.org. Download their FREE application, update it and run a full scan. DO NOT enable the trial mode. Delete everything that Malwarebytes finds. Reboot into safe mode with networking again (F8) and go online to superantispyware.com and download their free program too - update and run a full scan in rescue mode. Delete everything it finds.

Reboot and run your virus scanner to see if anything is left on the hard drive. If you do not have a virus scanner, boot into safe mode with networking and download a free one - PANDA, AVG, COMODO, or whatever you prefer. Install it, update it and run a full scan.

Reboot.

Avira Antivirus is an antivirus program that protects your computer from infected files such as spyware, adware, viruses and trojans.
Avira is constantly updating its virus definitions and regularly puts out new updates several times a day.
Avira comes with an automatic downloader, but it may not work properly if the software is installed incorrectly or there is another program conflicting with Avira.
Manually updating your Avira software takes a bit more time, but it is as easy as clicking a few buttons.

Visit Avira's website and download the newest virus file definition.
Click "Download VDF" if you are using the most newest version of Avira, or click "Download IVDF" if you are using an older version of Avira.
Save the folder to the desired location on your computer.
Click "OK".
Open Avira Antivirus.
Click "Update" and select "Manual Update".
Find the downloaded VDF or IVDF folder on your computer.
Select it and click "Open".
Avira will now update itself with the newest definitions.
A status screen will alert you when the update is complete.
http://www.avira.com/en/support/vdf_update.html
or you might have to download in safe mode
Restart your computer repeatedly tapping the f8 key to enter safe mode while the screen is black once in safe mode where the only things working will be your keyboard and mouse allowing you to attempt to repair your computer

Minimizing screens - multiple


Personally I think that Avast might be your best bet and it is free. Avast is like AVG, however from my experience I have seen Avast catch a lot of virues that AVG didnt catch. Also another thing that you need to do is run Spybot or any other spyware cleaner in Safe Mode, this way the viruses or spyware wont re-install themselves while you are running the scans. To download avast, just go to www.avast.com and download/install the home edition. Once you have downloaded and installed it, let it run a boot-time scan ( it will ask you this when you first install Avast ). Also you try other spyware cleaners such as adaware (www.lavasoft.com) and/or Windows Defender (http://www.microsoft.com/windows/products/winfamily/defender/default.mspx). BTW, if you decide to run AVG and Spybot in safe mode and dont know how to get into safe mode, do the following:

1. At boot-up, continually press F8 until a list comes up
2. Choose Safe Mode from the list

Let me know if this helps you out.

Yahoo Browser connects to internet, but Explorer&AVG update wont


Yahoo Connects but IE and AVG wont
1. Try opening AVG and adjusting the connection settings.
2. Go to Start/ Network connections/ Local area connection/ General tab/ Scroll down to TCP/IP/ highlight it and click properties. Make sure "obtain IP address automatically" is checked. Under the advanced setting there, DHCP should be enabled.
3. Verify setting in Internet Explorer under: Tools/Options/ Connections/ Lan Settings/ select "automatically detect settings"

You might also check your AVG program for a firewall conflict or block there.

When i want to update an update that needs to be updated


Do you know what the update is that fails? I guess the easiest way to see it is instead of using auto update, use Custom Update and see what needs to be installed.

I have also seen were some people have suggested this is caused by spy-ware on your system. Perhaps a in-depth scan would eliminate that possibility.
Personally I would not worry much about HP updates. The only time I would think of doing such updates is if I were having a problem with my system and an update directly addressed the issue. In fact I would go as far as to remove the HP updater.

Now Windows Updates are a different matter and should be done as they often cover security issues.

The HP Update program (bloatware, in my opinion) doesn't work with Vista very well, even though the system would have been bought with Vista pre-installed.Vista.

If you want to get rid of the HP Updates program, go to the Start menu and into the 'Control Panel'. Select "Programs & Features". The program is called 'HP Update'. You can Uninstall that program there if you like. You can manually check for updated hardware drivers by going to the HP site's Drivers and Downloads area, and entering your Desktop Model Number.

The HP Updates program also seems to have problems with various software/hardware firewalls, particularly when running Windows Vista, preventing it to search for and download optional driver updates for your HP computer.

HP says that hpsudelpacks.exe is a virus which affects mostly the automatic downloading of hp updates. go to their website and download the realtek audio driver manually to see if you can actually download updates to begin with. You should update any spyware or virus program if you have to and then shut down my computer and restart in safe mode. When in safe mode , run windows defender found here http://www.microsoft.com/windows/products/winfamily/defender/default.mspx , then run avg virus program found here http://free.avg.com/download?prd=afe , then restart your computer, click on hp update in my start button area, and you should able to download another update.

Regards..

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
