There is no such patch - have you got the correct number.
Try a Windows Update.
If still get the error, uninstall AVG and re-install it.

My toshiba seems 2 have a virus my avg says its out of date ,it wont let me update it,it wont let me uninstall itwindows downloaded a antivirus ,which is driving me mad ,i cant uninstall that either.the ...


Hi there my name is Alex and im here to help you with this problem

Is the antivirus that was downloaded called win antivirus 2008? This is a virus its self and causes many problems even to the desktop. What you can try doing is restarting your computer and running Safe mode by pressing F8 just before windows boots and selecting safe mode. Whilst in safe mode, the internet is not available and some drivers are disabled which means you should be able to uninstall any programs without problem

If you are experiencing problems downloading AVG updates using the internet, you can download the updates manually from this website http://free.avg.com/download Here you will find a basic guide of how to install this.

I hope this can be some assistance to you. If you experience any problems, please let me know

I HAVE JUST DOWNLOADED AVG FREE NOW I NEED VISTA PATCH KB959247 DO YOU NO WHERE I COULD GET THIS FROM


That is a KB article from Microsoft needed to install AVG with Vista.
If you look at where AVG says you need this KB it has two KB's listed there, one for Vista 32bit and one for Vista 64bit. Click on the blue writing that corresponds to your version of Vista and it will automatically open the Microsoft download page with the KB (knowledge base) download that you need.

Try this link to download it...

http://free.avg.com/ww.download?prd=afe

This maybe the same link you have already tried. If it is, just do a google search for AVG free, it's available from several other places.


You also need to download a patch for Vista and AVG to work together, if you go to this link ...

http://www.avg.co.uk/uk.faq.num-1066#faq_1066

You can download the patch from microsoft via AVG website, you need to select FAQ number 1177 then choose the download according to your OS ie 32bit or 64bit.

Hope this helps.

I need the KB292547 Vista Patch so I can get AVG.


http://search.microsoft.com/results.aspx?mkt=en-US&setlang=en-US&q=KB292547%20Windows%20Update

indicates that there is no such thing as KB292547 on any of various Microsoft sites. Besides, since when has anyone needed to install an update to Windows in order to run AVG.. I also looked on both my XP and Vista machines and neither have this patch mentioned, so I then looked up all patches included in Vista SP-1 and it is not there either... Maybe you mistyped your KB #
