    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.

Folder automatically becomes application why, can you tell a way to make it back


Hello,
Scan your computer with an anti-virus. It's a virus infection. If you have no anti-virus in your computer then install a free AVG anti-virus. However, it's not an assurance that the virus will get removed. The last resort is to reinstall the operating system and install a premium anti-virus. Protection is better than cure.
Let me know if you have any questions. I hope this helps!

Just to to start, choose control panel, choose add/remove program, remove AVG 2011.

Try to down load AVG virus program and it is


It's usually indicative that you either already have an antivirus program installed (anti virus software treats other anti virus software as a virus) or you have a virus. Here are several links. The first is for the free version of AVG 9.0
This link if for a free online anti virus program by Trend Micro Systems called Housecall
I'd recommend a full anti virus scan on Housecall. After which you could either choose to continue to check on a regular basis or for realtime protection, download and install AVG 9.0.
I hope this answers your question. All the Best!

Computer has viruses which might be why it has a the blue screen


Try entering safe mode and doing the virus scan:
  • Switch on your PC
  • Before the Windows Logo screen appears press F8 to get the startup options menu
  • Chose Safe Mode
  • Once your computer boots, run AVG and let it remove all the viruses. Reboot and it should go into Windows as normal.You might have to rerun the scan a few times to get rid of everything but it should do the job.

Virus problem


AVG may be reporting the virus that is in your system restore folder. This is common with AVG. Her is a link to Microsoft's site explaining how to turn it off and back on. Once you turn off System restore, reboot the PC and turn it back on. Run AVG again and the virus will probably be gone.

Screen is black. Only mouse pointer shows. Running Microsoft Vista


Have you tried starting in safe mode?
If this works do you have any anti virus software? If you dont, try AVG free (http://free.avg.com/download?prd=afe) Scan for any viruses and remove un-needed programs/files.

Sorry if this doesent work!

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.

Hello, I am experienceing difficulties with my PC. I can't access to any folders and cant open the start menu.


You might have a Virus. In the case of a Virus infection I would most likely disconnect the Hard drive from the machine, scan it on another machine ( using AVG7 + AVGAS = AVG Antivirus and AVG Anti Spyware Scan) remembering to turn off system restore while scanning on the drive.

If you have successfully found and removed the virus infection, remember to delete your system volume information and recycler folder on the drive. virus files tend to infect these folders.

When you plug in your HDD into your machine again, you might want to do a Windows repair; to fix the issues that the virus has caused OR use a registry repair tool to repair registry items. Another option would be to create a new user name. The settings in that new accound should be working fine and you should be able to access the start menu and your folders again.
