Just turn off your avg for the moment you install the driver.
AVG often have a false alarm in many programs, try avast for free or kaspersky for commercial. both of it is better than avg.

In avg settings, add the cams driver etc as being ok. AVG thinks it is a virus/trojan installation.

Every tym i insert my pendrive it says insert disk into the drive...???removable disk appears..but it doesnt opns...is there any solution...plz do help me


Assumption 1
Flash drive is damaged, the normal operating system.
Solution
If the flash drive is detected (eg; detected the flash drive in drive G), but it says "insert the disk into the drive ..."
1. Download software JetFlash Online Recovery (open link - select type software - select OS Windows - select language English - select product JetFlash All Series - Download).
2. Insert the flash drive
3. Open file OnLineRecovery.exe - Select the volume of the device - Repair the drive & keep data existed - START. If it fails, select Repair the drive & erase all data - START.

If the flash drive is not detected (not detected as drive G),
the above solution can not be used.

Assumption 2
Normal flash drive, the operating sytem is corrupt
Solution
Flash drives do not require drivers (plug and play). Because flash drives plug and play, it should be, when the flash drive inserted detects the operating system without installing drivers. But, if the operating system does not detect, the possibility of operating systems corupt. The cause is a virus corrupt your operating system.

1. Download and install anti-virus Avira or AVG (free).
2. Update anti-virus
3. Scan your computer.
4. Repair the operating system.
5. If no virus is detected, the possibility of operating system is corrupt.

I hope this information helps.

When I brought my laptop to the computer shop where it was bought for reformat because it was infected by a virus, and after it was reformatted, the Microsoft office was gone. Now, I can't type or edit any...


Hi Gabriel

If a PC is reformatted uoy must reinstall your Microsoft package to be able to edit or write existing files. You need to reinstall everything.
The guy who did this must tell you the consequences of a reformatting, but he or she did this probably not.

You are in deep trouble now if you dont have the original disk - Microsoft Office installation disk/CD.

If you dont have this you could use the program Open Office.
It is free to use and is compatible with Microsoft Office.
It can be found here http://download.openoffice.org/index.html
Download the program - install it and you are up and running again.

Comment:
The person who have reformattet your PC is amateur. Virus can be removed by using different scanners etc.
I recomend you to install virus protection on your mashine as fast as possible.
You can find virus protection programs which are free to use. Some of the brest programs are AVG or Avast.
Just serach for these programs on the internet and you will find what you need.

I purchased the AVG Anti-virus & anti- spyware cd


Installing AVG might not be able to solve your spyware problem.

You could try downloading free mbam:

http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/malwarebytes/mbam-setup.exe

Double-click and install it. Then run it. Click the Scan button, It will detect and remove the Spyware Guard 2008

After clicking on OK button for scan is complete, you need to click the Remove Selected button when the malwares are listed.

Let the computer reboot if mbam needs that.
Then try installing AVG.

Just in case, you could also try booting from the AVG CD. If it's bootable, it will be able to scan your computer without the need to boot in to windows. Try it too.

I am trying ti install agv anti virus i have completley unistalled norton but i kepp getting this error message action failed for file agvmfx86 sys starting service error 0x80070002


Always shut down all running programs before trying to install anything like AVG. If you already have an AV program, uninstall it before trying to install AVG.

If still having problems after doing that..... RE-Download AVG 7.5 FREE and try the install again.
Good Luck,

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.
