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.

I'm trying to download the avg free edition virus software and it is saying i need a vista patch. i don't know what that is or means


Have you run Windows Update? If not, you'll need to do that before installing.

Windows Update is located in the Control Panel at the very bottom.

(Note: on Windows Vista, a prompt called the UAC prompt may come up asking if you want to allow the updates. You MUST click "Allow" or "Continue", whichever it shows, to continue)

Double click on the icon(or single click if that's how you have it set up). On the right side of the window that comes up there should be a button that says "Install Updates" Click on that and let it finish.

It could take a long time, and may need to restart your computer. Try installing AVG again after you update and let me know if that helped.

You can download this patch from Microsoft via the Grisoft Website if you look at this page link I have provided you need to select FAQ number 1177 then choose the download according to your OS ie 32bit or 64bit

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 #

Can't install KB929547


http://www.microsoft.com/DownLoads/details.aspx?familyid=101BA074-12C1-46B3-8AF6-159AFEE195B9&displaylang=en

All right, let's try this again ! Sorry that other link appears to have broken. This should lead you to the Microsoft downloads page...you will first have to validate, then you should be able to download the fix.

Now, on to the data is invalid issue. It seems like the patch you have may have been corrupted. Try to redownload, and apply a new patch, and see if that works.

There doesn't seem to be a lot of info out there on your particular issue, so we may have to wing it to start with. A possible cause of this, so you know, may be some kind of malware already on your pc. Are you installing AVG to get rid of something ? Or just for protection ?

Anyway, try getting rid of the earlier download ( use add/remove) and redownloading the kb fix. If that doesn't work, then we'll go from there.

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?

I have just upgraded to AVG 8.0 Free Trial. The internet has become very slow. I then proceeded to download the recomended update KB929547 which then tells me it does not apply after trying both 32 Bit or...


Make sure you have uninstalled any other antivirus software from the computer. Some PC''s come with Norton or McAfee pre-installed. You can go to the Control Panel, and to "Add or Remove Programs" to see if there is any other protection software you may have missed.
