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.

Running Spybot Search & Destroy with EITHER Avast or Avg (great Free virus protection programs ) will keep a computer in good working condition. FREE

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

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,
