Ok so your protection migh tbe infected, sometimes viruses attack your virus protection then utilize it to destroy your OS [operating system]. One issue is that the only to fix it completely is to re-install your OS.

BUT many people dont know how or are affraid of installing it, many people have information on a computer and they want to keep it. My method invovles storing that data in a safe place IE a flash drive, DVDS or CDs, or in some cases the second harddrive on your computer,

also you must own a OS disc with a serial number from your computer.

BUT i have a disc with a modified version of Windows xp professinal so i can reinstall my OS anytime i feel like it. So if i were you i would start backing up your data as your OS may be comprimised. then after saving your Important info and other data you may reinstall or use a recovery mode in your computers,

i know this isnt much help since you prolly dont want to reinstall your OS with all your data, but thats why u should back up your data and then possibly find the solution without the worry of losing it. many times the only way to solve these issues to have a clean install of your OS, but the means to do it are quite complicated if you havent done it before. just PM me if u want the Modified version of windows xp

AVG, programme is blocked by group policy ?


If you installed the free version, they sometimes give a popup that says it needs an upgrade. When you upgrade, you actually are upgrading to a payed version, you get for free for 30 days. When the 30 days are over you have to pay or AVG does to work anymore.
But you don't need AVG anymore.
The Microsoft security essentials does protect you computer as good or even better then AVG and it is really for free.

Features of AVG Anti Virus


<p>AVG Anti Virus is available free-of-charge to home users! AVG Free Edition is for private, non-commercial, single home computer use only. AVG Anti-Virus is loaded with features, including new tools that improve security and usability. Continuing from last year is the gamer mode, which allows you to enjoy full-screen games (or movies, presentations, etc.) without interruptions or popup announcements, and still maintain security. Generally free antivirus software does not give full protection. Still AVG free version is best among free antivirus software.<br /> <p> <br> <p>AVG Anti-Virus even includes a PC system optimizer utility. The PC Analyzer scans your system and locates registry errors, junk files, disk errors and broken shortcuts. You can fix these issues, but note that you can only fix errors once for free. Subsequent use requires that you purchase AVG PC Tune-up.<br> <p> <br> <p>Another great feature that only a few of the best antivirus software vendors have is internet link-scanning. AVG LinkScanner brings a whole new level of security to your online activities, and won

My desktop security says virus protection is turned off. the updates and firewall say on. i have tried everything that i know of to turn on. even the right click on the icon on the bottom by the clock. i...


First make sure your AVG is up-to-date...then to get rid of the popup click on the red sheild that opens the security center. Click on "Recommendations" and then check the checkbox that says, "I have antivirus software I will monitor on my own". that should get rid of the red shield on your taskbar. If updating your AVG does not work, try using Avast Free Antivirus...It's free and works alot better than AVG. Hope this helps.

I have installed AVG 8 but I keep getting Messages saying I have no protection Firewall and Antivirus


It could be that the Windows security has not identified that you have installed AVG 8. Have you rebooted the computer to see if that helps? Generally, it does. I know that Windows security identifies AVG 8 because that is the antivirus product that I use and I have no problem.
