Question about Microsoft Computers & Internet
I'm having problems with some programs (e.g. AVG Anti-Virus, Java Update, Skype) accessing the internet to get updates or just load. I'm using a Sony Vaio VGN-CR35 running Vista Home Premium. My actual Internet connection is fine, I can use IE to browse, to get Windows updates, etc, but when say AVG tries to update it's virus definitions it can't. At first I suspected an OS (Vista Home Premium) issue, but after looking at various Windows based solutions (like making sure the firewall is not blocking the programs - exceptions, etc.) and having a friend running Vista say they had no problems, I've now come to suspect the problem lies elsewhere. Would greatly appreciate any help... Thanks, Ken
It's possible that windows defender is interfering with the functions of you software.
turn windows defender off and see if you still have the problem.
go to control panel and open windows defender and turn off real-time protection
if this helps please leave a vote in fixya..thanks
