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.

HP Pavilion a6110n PC won't update windows driver KB2761494


Method 1: Disable the security software temporarily. Note: Antivirus software can help protect your computer against viruses and other security threats. In most cases, you should not disable your antivirus software. If you do have to temporarily disable it to install other software, you should re-enable it as soon as you're done. If you are connected to the Internet or a network during the time your antivirus software is disabled, your computer is vulnerable to attacks. Method 2: Place the computer in a Clean Boot state to see if there is any software conflict as clean boot helps to eliminate software conflicts. Note: After performing the troubleshooting steps in clean boot, follow Step 3 from the article to start the computer to Normal startup mode. Method 3: You can also install the updates (KB number) manually by downloading from Microsoft download center. http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/default.aspx Method 4: Follow the steps from the article. How do I reset Windows Update components? Hope this helps

My HP 6750 locks up constantly and I have to force a reboot..Why ?


it may have some cross-linked files, you can try running check-disk to repair the disk, but you probably have some spyware or a virus. the best solution is to reinstall the software and make sure you have up-to-date antivirus/antispyware software. that is the only way to make sure the computer is completely clean. the software is supposed to be reinstalled from the original disks every year anyway. you can get avgfree antivirus at avgfree.com, i would also suggest you install spybot search & destroy spyware tools. i also use spyware blaster. you can download those from majorgeeks.com. if you would like to try removing the viruses/spyware first, i would suggest you try an online scanner tool at one of the major antivirus websites. norton's, computer associates', mcafee's, trend micro's, etc. it is very difficult to remove a virus using software on an infected system, so you have to use an outside source that is 'clean'. you should also be running a firewall for security, such as zonealarm. the free zonealarm firewall can be downloaded at zonealarm.com.
