I would download Advanced System Care including their Malware fighter, (All free programmes). Use their Uninstal programme to remove AVG.
Let ASC run all of the tasks.
Speed Up Slow Computer Keep PC and Internet Secure Freeware Download IObit
AVG is a waste of time compared to the other programmes out there. Makes your computer hang and run very slowly.

Recover webpage


Try checking your browsers add on settings. Disable flash and see if it works, maybe flash is corrupt. If this helps, remove the addon malfunctioning and reinstall it. Also update your browser to latest version.

On my iPad, safari cannot open the page because it could not connect to the server


Sometimes when your wifi is not available or slow, safari is not able to connect (to the server) within a given amount of time; and it times out. Hence the message is shown. Other times, the "server" for the website that you are trying to reach, to open the webpage, is busy, too busy, or not available (when you want data from it). When this happens, you will also get that message.
Often, by retrying ... or trying again later ... (when the wifi and/or the server becomes available), you will be able to connect and display the webpage that your Safari is trying to reach.

Cannot access a site although have put in browser, to acitvate it, have been having error page 403, gone into browser but still will not allow access to stite requested.


HTTP Error 403 is an error message which means that you are not authorized to view the web page which you are attempting to load. Usually, the HTTP error 403 - Forbidden means that access to the file/folder you are trying to open has been denied, either on intention or owing to a configuration anomaly. You could attempt using a proxy website if the access is blocked intentionally.

Somebody installed windows live on my computer i now have msn as my desk top i want to go back to google classic


Hi. I am assuming you are talking about the page that Internet Explorer goes to when you first open it. If that is the case, try this:

Windows Vista (all versions)

1. Open Internet Explorer by clicking the Start button getopencontent.aspx?assetid=4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33&documentset=en-us&renderkey=xml, and then clicking Internet Explorer.
2. Navigate to the webpage you would like to set as the home page.
3. Click the arrow to the right of the Home button getopencontent.aspx?assetid=4aa01e82-2732-4ac7-b246-a06c904f2c2c&documentset=en-us&renderkey=xml, and then click Add or Change home page.
In the Add or Change Home Page dialog box, do one of the following:
• To make the current webpage your only home page, click Use this webpage as your only home page.
• 4. To start a home page tab set or to add the current webpage to your set of home page tabs, click Add this webpage to your home page tabs.
• To replace your existing home page or home page tab set with the webpages you currently have open, click Use the current tab set as your home page. This option will only be available if you have more than one tab open in Internet Explorer.
5. Click Yes to save your changes.

Windows XP (all versions)

1. Open Internet Explorer by clicking the Start button, and then clicking Programs or All Programs, and clicking Internet Explorer.
2. Navigate to the webpage you would like to set as the home page.
3. On the pull-down menus at the top of the window, click the Tools menu and choose Internet Options (if the Tools is not showing at the top of the page, you can access it using the Tools pull-down menu located on the right side of the window).
4. To make the current webpage your home page, click the “Use Current” button.
5. Click OK to save your changes.

Hope this helps!

Missing Vista home basic product number


Acer gives you the option to create your own cd's. Click the start button & go to all programs. Look through the programs installed. Someting like DVD pro. or nero. There is a program in there so you can creat your own set of restore cd's. The reason your PC is so slow is because Acer loaded the system up with a ton a junk you'll never use. (Can always return it). I would befor the warranty runs out.........

Good Luck!
