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.

Try this little gem, Malwarebytes, this is the best that I have found, and it is what I use. I have never had any false positves or any other problem with it at all. It is really a great program that I recommend to anyone who needs to get rid of malware.

If you need anti-virus protection as well I would try this one, AVG-Free, it is the best one that I have found. If you do have any anti-virus program you should get rid of it before you install AVG or any other anti-virus prtogram, especially if it was not protecting you system very well, and you only need to have one good anti-virus program running on your computer.

I would also suggest installig Spywareblaster, it does not scan for malware or viruses, but it does block you from connecting to some really malicious web sites.

http://download.cnet.com/SpywareBlaster/3000-8022_4-10196637.html?tag=mncol

These are all free programs that I personally use, and they are all top notch in performance, they do exactly what they say they do and they do it very well.

Hi my name is maria leal and i'am having problems trying to activate my mcafee anti virus that came with a hp 550 laptop from your deal with 3 G hutchison uk ltd and i was wonder if you can help me


Thats True, its probably a trial, but heres some actual help.

Remove Mcaffe all together, un-install that crappy software, never think about it again. It uses way to much resources from your computer and it bugs you every mintute with something.


Heres the good part.

Go to GRISOFT.COM
in the search field at the top, do a search for AVG FREE
select the first link that says AVG FREE EDITION FOR WINXP/VISTA.

Scroll down and look to the left next to the Check marks.

Slect the download for the free version.

when the screen opens, click the download version 8.0 and when its done, install it and run the updates.

Its all easily installed and requires little on your part. Its a completely Free with no adds or junk, Anti virus.

I have used them for 8 years and have never regreated it.

They design Network Server anti Virus software but have the free version for personal computer. Its great and it runs smooth and discreet in the taskbar. Any other questions, let me know.

heres the direct link if it makes it easier.

Good luck and enjoy.

Vista Patch


Simple, most unlikely solution: Try to download patch from microsoft website and install it.

Other Solution: Go to trained professional, (geeksquad or firedog), they will install it more simply and correctly.

Installation of software by them is probably like 30 bucks.
