Question about Dell Dimension 2400 PC Desktop

3 Answers

Can't download AVG 8

Following thheir instructions I got as far as saving the ''installation file'' to my desktop. They say my license is # which I think is the one I bought back in early '08 & expires in 2009 This may be the one that I couldn't up date and forced me to buy a 2 year version 8 expiring in 2010. But anyway when I DOUBLE CLICKED ON the ''installation file'' as instructed, a window came up saying it can't open because of a ''share Violation'' {What ever that is.}. So I tried to delete it and start again but a window told me it Can't delete because it ''was being used by another person or program and to Close any programs that MAY be using the file and try again.'' So I closed every vestige of AVG, one by one and trying after each deletion to get to the installation, but nothing worked so in desperation I deleted the last hope, my 1 yr. AVG 8 program I bought in early '08 which kept telling me I wasn't covered and always indicated the problem was with the Anti-Spam. This is what forced me to buy a whole new 2 year version. I even tried loading the backup discs I had of Version 7.5 -and they didn't work! I even tried to go thru the process of getting another ''installation file'' without success. So now I am totally unprotected and dead in the water. Help!

  • After the license is activated, you will see the License type and Expiration date. Click Next.
  • The installation and activation processes are now complete. Click Finish to open Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2010.

Looks like you simply copied the exe file of the particular program or just the folder of AVG from programs. This is not the procedure to take a backup of any software. It is best for you that you download the AVG free antivirus again from the internet.
