Virus protection programs are not installed on new computers. Most like you are not protected.
I suggest you install one of these free virus programs.

AVG free edition should do the trick, but the safest way to get rid of a virus is reformatting your hard drive.

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.

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 #
