Hi,

Pls verify that you are logged on as Administrator and that no other related software are running such as Ad-Aware or ZoneLabs. It would seem further that you would need to contact AVG / Grisoft and for then to send you a batch file that you need to run before installing AVG 8. The file is named "reset_access.bat". After the bat file, the installation should work. The bat file is supposed to clear up some permissions issue that will allow the installation to proceed.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

    Alternately, you can Try downloading this files from here.
    Decompress the zipped file (extract) to a folder in your C drive and run reset_access.bat , it should fix the registry problem and allow installation.

    Or you can try manually editing your registry by deleting the entry HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\AvgDiagFile\DefaultIcon.

    Start/Run, type "regedit" less the quotes.

    This link works as I was able to download, unzipped and run "reset_access.bat". After running this, you should be able to install your purchased AVG 8.0.

The ntvdm cpu has endountered an illegal instruction. Cs:0df1 IPL01f6 OP: ff ff 00 00 ff


SYMPTOMS


When you attempt to run a 16-bit program on a computer running Microsoft Windows NT 4.0 Service Pack 3, the program may quit immediately, or you may receive the following error message:


Hidden Console of WOW VDM
The NTVDM CPU has encountered an illegal instruction.
CS: 04c3 IP:3937 OP:c71c 9d 37 00
Choose Close to terminate the application.

When you click Close, you may receive several similar error messages.


CAUSE

This behavior can occur if you use an incorrect version of the Command.com file. For example, this issue is known to occur if you use a Command.com file included in Microsoft Windows 95, dated 7/11/95.


RESOLUTION

To resolve this issue, replace the Command.com file in the Winnt\System32 folder with the same file from another computer that is running Windows NT Workstation 4.0 or Windows NT Server 4.0, and then make sure that there are no Command.com files dated 7/11/95 on the computer. You can also replace the Command.com file on the computer with the same file on the Windows NT installation CD-ROM.

Tip

Free PC Firewalls that work.


This is a very simplified guide only to Commercial Quality Free Firewalls.
A lot of us already know about these, but it's intended for those of us who don't.

I will post other Tips about other highly rated Free Security Programs depending on the responses here.

Before you decide, just bear in mind that no software suits everyone or every PC or OS. There are also personal likes, dislikes,foibles and resource usage issues that will no doubtedly please or irk some people here. It's a guide only.

These reviewed free utilities are all similarly rated and are a good contender for equalling or even exceeding some of the top rated paid commercial software.

Most Firewalls are renowned for their annoying chatter. Those screens you see with warnings such as "Do you......." or "Firewall Needs.........." etc. This is what they are supposed to do. Some chatter may be just a bit too much for the average PC user to cope with and you may opt for a less aggressive, but less secure or less configurable Firewall. That's a personal thing that each of us needs to decide.

I simplified and reviewed 3 out of the top few contenders, tho there may be other similarly good or bad ones in your opinion.

Comodo Security Suite (includes optional Antivirus)
32 bit and 64 bit bit compatible - Yes. Separate downloads.
HIPS protection - Yes
Ease of use - 5/10. Should improve after learning curve
Overall Protection - 9+/10 (user error not included)
Resource usage - One of the highest, but expected with this type of performance.
User configuration - 8/10 after learning curve.
Updates - Auto or Manual
Exceeds the performance requirements of paid commercial products.
Can be very daunting and extremely annoying for first time users.
An excellent and huge help file is included that should be read thoroughly.
Not recommended if you are annoyed easily or a bit lazy to read the seemingly initial constant chatter.
http://personalfirewall.comodo.com/download_firewall.html

Online-Armour Free
32 bit and 64 bit compatible - Yes for Vista and W7. XP is 32bit only.
HIPS protection - Yes
Ease of use - 7/10 after learning curve.
Overall Protection - 9/10 (user error not included)
Resource usage - A bit less than Comodo
User configuration - 5/10. There's some questionable user configured disabling features and software installer annoyances that may turn some users off this, otherwise it is excellent.
Updates - Auto or Manual
Similar to the performance requirements of paid commercial products but with some items locked out in the free version. Chatter is still annoying, but not as aggressive as Comodo
online-armor-free.php">http://www.tallemu.com/products-online-armor-free.php

PC Tools Firewall Plus
32 bit and 64 bit compatible - Yes. For Vista and W7. XP is 32 bit only.
HIPS protection - Yes
Ease of use - 6/10. Help is very sparse.
Overall protection - 8/10 (user error not included)
Resource usage - Noticeably less than the above
User configuration - 4/10. The minimal help may be an issue and some items are only available in paid version. Ads in Free version can be annoying.
Updates - Auto or manual
Nearly as good as paid commercial products. Still has chatter you need to put up with.

Lost SP3 windows xp home edition version 2002 how do i get it back or do i need to I have automatic updates turned on when I look at programs beside it ,there no file size? also how do I fix error...


If you mean no file size showing up in "Add / Remove Programs"
thats because it's integrated / uninstallable but registered.

Error: 0x80070005, is that when you access "Microsoft Update"?

As for repairing SP3 Read more here:
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/help/learn-how-to-install-windows-xp-service-pack-3-sp3

and you probably have to go for option:
"Manually installing SP3 using the Microsoft Download Center or a CD"

I paid n paid n this is all i get......what is it????


Well im not a PC expert, but HKLM/ stuff are registry and Key Values, they effect your systems entire performance from startup through. If you have bad key files you need to have someone who know about bios setups look at it, usually if its a bad keyfile you need to wipe the hard drive and reinstall windows. Atleast thats what i did the last time i got a message like that at pc startup.

I just purchased Norton 360 2.0 CD to install in my computer. Three hours later - not installed. I have AVG 8.0 that continues to pop up when I initiate the Norton installation, installation tben stops...


Yes you need to uninstall any and all antivirus programs installed on your computer. After uninstalling, make sure to reboot your computer. Do that for each antivirus or internet security software you have installed. Once done, it Norton 360 should install. If you have troubles uninstalling AVG, check their support area on their website. I'm not sure if you have a paid version or the free version but here are the sites for both.

Free - http://free.grisoft.com/ww.help

Paid - http://www.grisoft.com/ww.support

Hope this helps! : )

Installing avg 8.0


AVG is free for home users. Why would you pay for it? To install it you only need to download it from the web site and install it. If you paid for it, you will be prompted to put in your serial number when you install it. Maybe you have a bad download. Have you tried to download it again? Are you using VISTA OR XP. Vista will block you sometimes if you do not shut off all of the controls that it has. Even though you are the administrator, Vista blocks you from doing certain things. This is a glitch in Vista. Try shutting off the firewall and the user account setting that blocks people from doing anything. The error code that you gave is only for AVG people and we have no way of telling you what it means. When is this error code coming up? Is it a blue screen or what. It is hard to answer that kind of question unless we know what steps you took before it showed up. I have never had any problem with AVG since the first version came out. Can you give us more information?

Could'nt install avg8.0 because of error 0x80070005


Are you certain that you couldn't just click 'continue' and have it install correctly (despite posting that error)? Which OS were you trying to install in, anyhow? Perhaps you can installed AVG Free or Moon Secure with some success, and be satisfied with that at first?
