Installing AVG might not be able to solve your spyware problem.

You could try downloading free mbam:

http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/malwarebytes/mbam-setup.exe

Double-click and install it. Then run it. Click the Scan button, It will detect and remove the Spyware Guard 2008

After clicking on OK button for scan is complete, you need to click the Remove Selected button when the malwares are listed.

Let the computer reboot if mbam needs that.
Then try installing AVG.

Just in case, you could also try booting from the AVG CD. If it's bootable, it will be able to scan your computer without the need to boot in to windows. Try it too.

Tip

Learn the name of your anti-virus program


Its important to know the name of your anti-virus program, because on the web there are spyware pop ups that trick you to download their antivirus. I trust AVG, Avira, or Rising anti-virus programs. Avira is my favorite and I recommend you try that one.

POP UPS KEEP COMING UP AND I GET A MESSAGE THAT SAYS I NEED TO DOWNLOAD DATABASE AND I CANNOT ACCESS THE INTERNET


It seems like you have some sort of virus or spyware. If you do not have a virus scanner I would suggest downloading a free one such as Avast ( http://www.avast.com/eng/download.html ) or AVG Free ( http://free.avg.com/download-avg-anti-virus-free-edition ). After installing the Virus scanner I would then download a spyware scanner. I personally use SuperAntiSpyware ( www.superantispyware.com )and Spybot ( www.safer-networking.org/ ), but there are many of them out there. If you cant download them from your computer, go to another computer and download them and save them to a thumb drive or CD. Hope this helps

Everything that I go to this keeps popping up RUNDLL Error loading C:/Windows system 32/_c00F3AO.dat %1 is not valid Win 32 application


this sounds like a classic case of spyware in your computer. you need to install an anti virus spyware package, e.g. norton antivirus. once installed run an anti virus scan and spyware scan it should solve your problem.

My computer has this pop up antivirus 2009 warning me its found 36 problems if i dont purchase i will loss data it will not allow me to delete it either


DO NOT buy this! Regardless of who it's from it's nothing but spyware. No reputable company would do this!
Go to www.filehippo.com and download AVG Free 8.0 anti-virus (Best anti-virus in my opinion by far) and install it. Also get A-Squared Free at the same time. It will find and stop what's giving you this message. There's no need for any repair or for you to buy ANYTHING!
If your'e using Windows XP Sp.2 or Vista you will need to disconnect from the internet (just to be extra safe) and open your control panel and click on "security center" then go down to anti-virus and click on 'recommendations' and check the box about "I have anti-virus I'll monitor myself" before you can install the new programs. Just follow their instructions and you should never have this problem again.

Go to the grisoft.com site and send them you question; they will respond and likely provide better answers than we could.

I am trying ti install agv anti virus i have completley unistalled norton but i kepp getting this error message action failed for file agvmfx86 sys starting service error 0x80070002


Always shut down all running programs before trying to install anything like AVG. If you already have an AV program, uninstall it before trying to install AVG.

If still having problems after doing that..... RE-Download AVG 7.5 FREE and try the install again.
Good Luck,

The anti spyware software should not conflict with your anti virus software.
You can download two good free anti spyware programs:
http://www.download.com/Spybot-Search-Destroy/3000-8022_4-10122137.html
http://www.download.com/Ad-Aware-2007/3000-8022_4-10045910.html
AVG also has a free version.
