    Could be any number of reasons.

    1. The file you are scanning is not a virus.
    2. Your definitions are not up to date.
    3. A virus has attacked your AVG and disabled it.

Free antivirus program


You don't have a question here, but I will comment on AVG. I used to use AVG and have Beta Tested both AVG and AVAST. AVAST I can set up a Boot-Time Scan and with AVG I can not. Importance of a Boot-Time Scan, is getting rid of persistent viruses. There is NO, and I mean NO antivirus program that totally works under Windows. The Boot-Time Scan works under DOS and runs before windows is loaded upon your next restart. It takes longer, but it works very well. Depending on the size of your hard drive and the number of files on it, it can take as long as 2 to 2 1/2 hours. It is automatic, so walk away and when you see windows has loaded, then the Boot-Scan has finished. There is a log file that you can view to see what it found if you want to look. Once AVG let a virus into my computer, I went to AVAST and never went back, mainly because AVAST works and also the Boot Scan feature that AVAST has. Years ago, there was a DOS based virus scan that I had used on a Floppy Disc to rid computers of nasty virus attacks and infested PC's. It was proven to me that only a DOS based program can rid any virus a PC is infected with. With the free version you do not necessarily get all the help you need, but with the paid versions you will get all the Bells and Whistles. While free is alright to try, I recommend you Buy! This keeps software development going in the right direction and improvements flourishing.

My anti virus was expired,


ok, press f8 on startup and you should have a menu appear , select safe mode,

Now once booted select AVG scan, a command window will open and a scan will take place,

This should solve your problem,

I can't download free AVG antivirus software, only the PC package


For AVG, you have to download an installer first from www.download.com and then download and install AVG. Alternatively download Avira on a dofferent machine and copy to your PC and install. I doubt if you can download AVG with this new system of installer.

Anti Virus


Here is what I would do.

First I would start off by downloading the free trial of ESET NOD32 Anti-Virus. Afterward I would scan my system (In-Depth Scan) with the free trial of NOD32 (It doesn't use a lot of system resources). Next I would download the free version of Ad-Aware 2008. After the anti-virus scan finished I would scan my system with Ad-Aware (Full Scan). Next I would download and install Spybot Search & Destroy. After Ad-Aware finishes scanning I would start a scan with Spybot. Next I would download and install AVG Anti-Rootkit Free. After Spybot finishes scanning I would run an in-depth search on all hard-drives with the use of AVG Anti-Rootkit Free.

If that doesn't whack it, fighting this thing might not be worth it. Reinstall the windows operating system after you back up any files which you absolutely HAVE to keep.

Little red shield keeps telling me I have a security problem


You have a Rouge Anti-Virus malware, this is a virus do not download it will make it worse, the idea is to take over your computer and force you to buy the antivirus program which is actually just a list of places to download free virus removal software, All is not lost, if you have Virus software do a scan now and try to find it, if not download AVG Free Anti-Virus and that will take care of it.These people are from Russia and once they get your credit card number they will try to empty your bank. Let me know if this helps and please rate this solution. lone99star

I have lost a lot of my programs, also my computer is making wierd noises. can anyone help?


Could be a virus. Do you have a virus scanner on your computer? If not Avast antivirus is a virus scanner you can download for free. http://avast.com . Thats the one I use, another popular one is AVG which can be found at http://www.avg.com. Download one of those and scan your computer for viruses. Hope this helps. If not could you give some more details to what is happening? Good luck.

I am running AVG anti virus free version. Give me after scan a note of warnings,133 last scan. Doesn't tell me what they are though or how to repair/delete them.


AVG wont tell you unless it is a virus. most likely it is detecting your cookies. I recommend that you get the "FULL" version of AVG it does protect ALOT better. but i use AVG Free on some of my computers, and paid verson on others. if you want to make sure your system is clean run a system cleanup and remove all the ****. then run ad-aware free version. then run spybot search & Destroy. the go to http://housecall.trendmicro.com/ and run a free scann. it may not be able to clean everything but it will give you the info you need to get it cleaned. then rerun AVG it should come up clean.
