Question about Acer TravelMate 2300 Notebook
I have AVG and spybot on my computer. I constantly have a pop up that blocks my use of the internet. It's advertising "Antivirus 360" I can normally hit the back button and it allows me to continue using the internet but it's becoming more and more of an issue. Please help!
Okay, what you want is AVG Free 8.0, you can get this at download.com by CNET. Get rid of that other ****. I think it's your spybot doing it. Get rid of those going to your start menu and your controls, then go to add or remove programs, ONLY REMOVE SPYBOT AND AVG, then download the version I told you. You go to that site then search that at the toolbar and download. This is 100% trusted, I dowanload everything from there too. While you're at it get Mozilla Firefox too, it's way faster than Internet Explorer and has pop-up blocker built in. Comparing Internet Explorer to Mozilla Firefox is like a Honda vs. a Ferrari, (Ferrari being Firefox, lol.). If you have any other problems you can E-mail me at email@example.com cause I don't have an account on here. But try that and contact me if it doesn't work or help, by the way no problem if it works.

You don't need to do anything as drastic as a system restore to your laptop!! Is your AVG a free version or do you pay for a subscription?
If it's a free version, this is probably the ad to upgrade to the full version. i don't use AVG so i don't know what their ads look like... you will find this happens with some free software... i know it's not spybot because i've been using that for years and it has no popup ads.
to get rid of the ad, you have to pay a subscription, or just bear with it, if you're happy with the free version, and close the popup.
you can also try another free antivirus program if you want... be sure to uninstall the other one first. Avira is good, and only pops up an ad when you update the program or virus file.
hope that helps!
