Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition

Avg will not accept my license number

I recently purchased your AVG up-grade(your invoice number W0324889) order no. AVGUK_U493468 7.5 and an offer to upgrade to version 8 has appeared on my screen but it won't load successfully. I have an error showing 0x80070005. I have tried several times without success - please advise. Also AVG is saying my license number is invalid.

You can purchase one through http://usa.kaspersky.com/. Otherwise if you don't want to pay or can't afford a Kaspersky license you could use a free antivirus program, such as AVG Free or Avast!. You can get AVG Free from http://free.avg.com

I do not have an anti virusfor my computer


when you download avg free the licence will be attached to it you must copy and paste it into a word/word pad then save it into my documents
at some stage avg free will ask you for a key
i have had this problem myself and I have heard of other people which had the same thing happen to them rather than download it again and do do the same then copy and paste it back in

Just copy and paste this into your search engine/browser

I purchased AVG but it didn't install properly so I cancelled the installation. Now how did I install the product I've already purchased? I have the license number.


Most probably it seems to be a low ram problem but you should match the specifications with your machine to find the culprit.
here are the specifications

Processor Intel Pentium 1.5 GHz Memory 512 MB RAM Hard disk free space (for installation) 750 MB HDD Recommended system requirements
Processor Intel Pentium 1.8 GHz Memory 512 MB RAM Hard disk free space (for installation) 1200 MB HDDI guess you lack something among them please verify them .
If you re still not able to resolve just comment with error message

Upgrading to AVG 8 from the 7.5 purchased version


Hi Collin there are several likely possibilities:

1) AVG keeps an extensive black lists of compromised
serial numbers.

These are numbers that have been published on the internet,
or numbers that have been associated with too many different
IP addresses during the download of automatic updates.

If a black listed serial number is detected during the daily
update sequence, Grisoft will send you a Trojan update
which disables your product.

2) A black listed serial number from the original installation,
may also propagate to any updates installed over the
top of it.

3) Also, AVG has become the target of many viruses, root kits
and Trojans that have found a way to hack it, remove it and
even prevent it from being re-installed, including many
"beagle" varieties.

4) AVG will not detect nor identify these viruses, even if you
manually find and scan the file.

AVG will however identify many false positives, as well as
most key generators designed to crack it (AVG).

5) The first thing you can do is contact AVG and complain
loudly in Czech or English. Their head office (Grisoft)
is in Brno in the Czech Republic.

6) Scan your machine with another product (!!!), including:

Rootkit Revealer (Free from Winternals/Mark Russinowich)
Black light (Trial ware from F-Secure)
Kaspersky
McAfee
Norton
etc.

I have had my AVG installation hacked by malware at least
a dozen times in the last year, so I no longer trust it. I still
use it, but I use a multitude of other products ad well.

Use only well known and reputable (brand name) products,
beware of hundreds of ROGUE scanners out there that are
themselves viruses and try to milk you for money.

7) Keep in mind that NO anti-malware product detects
everything, not even close, so you are fighting a loosing
battle.

8) Once you are reasonably confident that your machine is
clean, by using other products, totally remove AVG and
re-install it.

Isn't it ironic that you have to clean your machine BEFORE
you can install the ANTIVIRUS ?!!!


9) If you can't get your legit serial to work, do what all honest
angry customers do.

Go to a crack site, get yourself a bogus serial or a key
generator (check it for viruses with another product, not
AVG), Install AVG plus the current updates, before number
gets black-listed, and then DISABLE the automatic updates
in AVG as well as the Windows Scheduler Service.

BTW. Keep your key generator on a CD, because AVG
may detect it as a virus, and try to destroy it.

Martin


PS
If your software is legit, but the serial does NOT work, then:
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
www.mscracks.com used to be the best site for serials,
but their domain name expired about a week ago, so I don't
know what gives.

crackspider is another one.
also try: Pirate Bay

Always disable scripts in your Firefox, before
visiting these sites, some may try to hack your
computer.
