Question about Dell Dimension 2400 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Virus related I am using Windows XP for the following: Right, i recently uninstalled my AVG software, i then realised i didnt need to do that so i reinstalled AVG. Since reinstalling AVG i havent been to open the software to run an update or a scan... Also, i have lost my connection to my wireless router, my laptop connects, my ps3 connects and my Apple itouch connects, but my PC will not. Im guessing ive released a virus onto my PC by uninstalling AVG which is blocking me to operate the software and also blocking my connection to my router... Do you have any solutions i can use to resolve this problem? Maybe i need to obtain the name and type of virus i have and look for a software that will dispose of my problem, the question is how will i do that? Your support will be very very appreciated John

Advantages and Disadvantages of AVG Anti-Virus


<p>AVG offers a number of compelling features and the right technology to keep your PC protected. As one of the best antivirus software products reviewed, AVG offers a great solution that delivers advanced protection and simple use. But apart from these AVG have some advantages and Disadvantages.<br /> <p> <br /> <p>Advantages<br /> <ul> <li> Protection: - AVG Anti-Virus is fully armed to protect your computer from threats from a number of angles. The software includes antivirus and antispyware protection, as well as complete online protection from harmful sites and downloads.</li> <li> Ease of Installation: - AVG Anti-Virus is easy to download and install. The installation is straightforward and doesn't require a restart. And while it's not the fastest, it's relatively quick and performs an update immediately.</li> <li> Improved features: - Though you can download AVG protection software freely, but the security software is by no means ineffective.</li> <li> It's improved features like Link Scanner, ID Protection makes it the most effective scanner.</li></ul> <p> <br /> <p>Disadvantages:-<br /> <p>When uninstalling AVG version 7 or 8 in Windows XP/Vista and attempting to install other anti-virus programs such as Kaspersky Anti-Virus or Norton Antivirus, the latter programs will not install.<br /> <p>Instead, they show an "incompatible software installed" error even if the uninstalled software has been removed using the control panel.<br /> <p> <br /> <p>This happens because software that updates and changes can add registry entries that were not added when the product was originally installed.<span> </span>A signature update dated November 9, 2008, crippled some computers, as it allowed the software to treat "user32.dll", a major component of Windows XP/Vista, as a Trojan and advised users to delete it. Users who deleted the file in question were put on a continuous reboot loop. The problem was rectified a few days later with a new signature database and further safeguards were added to the product.

AVG Antivirus is a popular security software that is available both in free and paid versions. There can be many reasons for you to uninstall AVG Antivirus from your computer. Some of the most common reasons are:

* You want to upgrade to the latest AVG Antivirus version and you are unable to do so without uninstalling the current version.
* The AVG Antivirus installation is corrupt and you want to uninstall and then reinstall it to repair the issues.
* You feel the AVG is slowing down your PC and you want to opt for lighter antivirus software such as Antivirus Plus.

If you cannot uninstall AVG Antivirus using the Add or Remove Programs utility available in the Control Panel, you may use one of the following methods to uninstall AVG Antivirus from the system:

Using AVG Remover Tool

1. Open AVG Tools Download web page.
2. Here, search for and download the AVG Remover tool for the AVG software you have installed on your computer.
3. After the download is complete, use this utility to uninstall AVG Antivirus from the system.

You may be asked to restart your PC a few times during the removal process. So, it is best to use this feature when you are not doing any other work on your computer.

When you uninstall AVG Antivirus software by using the AVG Remover tool, the following related files and folders are removed from the system:

* All AVG user
* Virus Vault content
* User files
* Registry entries
* Any other information related to AVG

AVG Remover tool removes a lot of data related to AVG from your computer. During this process, the chances are quite high that some essential Windows or user file is removed. This is the reason why, you must use this method only if you cannot remove AVG using Add or Remove Programs.

Uninstall AVG. AVG is probably causing your programs not to open. Uninstall it by using "windows installer cleaner"

Having trouble uninstalling netgear wpn511


Need your version of MS Windows (or are you using Linux or Apple OS?), anyway, assuming
MSWin XP or WinVista or Win7,

start > control panel > add or remove programs > (L-click) Netgear software > (select) "Uninstall"

but if these vanilla instructions have been tried & aren't working, you may need to do a "system
resore" to a recent system configuration that worked well, then uninstall there, then re-install
all the stuff you're missing by doing a system restore...... if you've installed alota stuff recently
(like me) this could be very painful, and you won't know how far back to go until an uninstall works.


From the Netgear WPN511 RangeMax reference manual
avail from: ftp://downloads.netgear.com/files/WPN511_UM_03Feb07.pdf

Removing the WPN511 Software

If necessary, you can remove the wireless adapter software in these two ways:
• Navigate the Windows Start menu to the WPN511 Wireless PC Card program group, select the
uninstall option, and follow the screen prompts.
• Navigate the Windows Start menu to the Control Panel Add or Remove Program item, select
the WPN511 Wireless PC Card option, and follow the screen prompts.

If your system is acting unreliable and/underperforming in other ways, suspect a virus/worm/trojan
and clean out your system with Avast!/Norton/AVG/Kaspersky/McAfee, etc. then try the
uninstall again.

My AVG is conflicting with my installing Kaspersky.


you might not have uninstalled AVG .instead you could have deleted the AVG folder.
AVg components are still there in the registry.if you didnt uninstall it ,install AVG once more and uninstall it manually.
if its not working remove AVG components from registry
here are the instrucions:
To remove the AVG registry entries, open Registry Editor (Start-> Run-> Regedit). In the registry editor, navigate to the entries mentioned below,

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\AVG7Uninstall

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\AVG6INSTALL

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\AVG8Uninstall

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\AVG\Avg8

Right click on these entries and then delete them. If you are not comfortable about deleting registry entries, you can use a free registry cleaner. If you are using a 64 bit machine, then these are the entries to be removed.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\AVG7Uninstall

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\AVG6INSTALL

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\AVG8Uninstall

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\AVG\Avg8


Once these entries are removed, Kaspersky installation will be completed normally. Alternatively you can also use the AVG cleaner or Kaspersky removal tool for AVG8.
