I was trying to install some update and it would not install. What was is- the update available for AVG product cannot be installed

Has the subscription run out on the AVG product? An update will not install on an outdated subscription.

Do you have more than one anti-virus program installed? having more than one anti-virus program installed can cause problems as the two programs (or more) may be fighting each other.

Finally, try uninstalling the AVG product and reinstalling it again. Then try the update.

Dell inspiron cannot download programme

Do you have another anti-virus running? If so disable it and try again. Most Anti-Virus programs think other anti-virus programs are viruses.

Personally I have never used anything but AVG. Have not had any virus problems with it. After 10years of using the free version, I bought it for all the comps in house.

Download Virus Protection Below. Your Choice.

check for viruses................
Go to, and do the free scan Trend Micro's House Call virus, spyware and malware scanner and cleaner.

I cant delete a virus on my mp3

Solution : Use unlocker
Unlocker is a very useful freeware that will allow you to unlock any files that are currently in use by Windows or other malwares or viruses. You’ll know if this is happening if you are getting any of these messages when trying to delete a file:
  • Cannot delete file: Access is denied
  • There has been a sharing violation
  • The source or destination file may be in use
  • The file is in use by another program or user
  • Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use
Unlocker will make things right again for you.
You’ll notice that right after installing the software, a new option named “unlocker” will appear when right clicking any files or folders in Windows Explorer. To unlock a locked file, just right click it, select unlocker, and the unlocker software will start. Then, click “unlock all” and close the software. Now that your file is unlocked, just delete it in Windows Explorer, as you always do.

please download unlocker from this site

Hope this will help you

Hello there!! 
The problem that you are facing is not uncommon especially in areas where large LAN servers are setup together or Net surfing is functional!! It is due to a generic host virus nicknamed as "NewFolder" Virus!! It makes new copies of every folder in the root\parent folder!! Also Your mrssenger Windows will pop up and spam e- messages will b sent to people in your freinds list!!
This is a Virus and can b removed with a good antivirus like Kaspersky or Bit defender!! Get a trial version from the net and update it (if you dont get a full version) .Run a full system scan Scanning the boot sectors also!! It should remove that virus!!
