You need to be connected to the internet to install the updates, try manually updating the avg, and it will work if you are connected.

I have a Hyundai computer with a Microsoft windows XP 2005. It reads off line & I'am unable to install my AVG pc cleaner


Your operating system Win XP is too far out of date. You have Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10, between you and the present day. All support for XP finished 3 years ago.

After April 8, 2014, Microsoft will no longer provide security updates or technical support for Windows XP. Security updates patch vulnerabilities that may be exploited by malware and help keep users and their data safer.

You need to update to Win 7 at least, but really, you need a new computer and Windows 10. Your computer hardware is due to fail at any time soon. If you get 10 years, you are really lucky.

Advantages and Disadvantages of AVG Anti-Virus


<p>AVG offers a number of compelling features and the right technology to keep your PC protected. As one of the best antivirus software products reviewed, AVG offers a great solution that delivers advanced protection and simple use. But apart from these AVG have some advantages and Disadvantages.<br /> <p> <br /> <p>Advantages<br /> <ul> <li> Protection: - AVG Anti-Virus is fully armed to protect your computer from threats from a number of angles. The software includes antivirus and antispyware protection, as well as complete online protection from harmful sites and downloads.</li> <li> Ease of Installation: - AVG Anti-Virus is easy to download and install. The installation is straightforward and doesn't require a restart. And while it's not the fastest, it's relatively quick and performs an update immediately.</li> <li> Improved features: - Though you can download AVG protection software freely, but the security software is by no means ineffective.</li> <li> It's improved features like Link Scanner, ID Protection makes it the most effective scanner.</li></ul> <p> <br /> <p>Disadvantages:-<br /> <p>When uninstalling AVG version 7 or 8 in Windows XP/Vista and attempting to install other anti-virus programs such as Kaspersky Anti-Virus or Norton Antivirus, the latter programs will not install.<br /> <p>Instead, they show an "incompatible software installed" error even if the uninstalled software has been removed using the control panel.<br /> <p> <br /> <p>This happens because software that updates and changes can add registry entries that were not added when the product was originally installed.<span> </span>A signature update dated November 9, 2008, crippled some computers, as it allowed the software to treat "user32.dll", a major component of Windows XP/Vista, as a Trojan and advised users to delete it. Users who deleted the file in question were put on a continuous reboot loop. The problem was rectified a few days later with a new signature database and further safeguards were added to the product.

Unable to install AVG 8 free


Strippy had asked you a right question. You may be trying to install AVG when you have already one antivirus program running. OR you had once installed AVG sometimes in the past, but uninstallation was not properly done. Hence it is showing registry key error.

1. If you are running any anitvirus prog now, first uninstall it. Then restart the machine.

2. Now you try install AVG. it should install. if not, try the following

Go to system restore and create restore point for safety.

go to run and type regedit and then enter

Press cntrl + F for finding earlier registry keys of AVG. Try to find out all old registry keys amd delete them all.

Restart the machine. Its DONE.

Keep getting "hprb Update" window on screen. Have changed "hprb Update" on Norton Security from "custm" to "allow", but problem still exists.


Click START-RUN- in the dialog box type: msconfig in the box
when it opens select the "startup" tab - uncheck the box next to the hp update entry - click APPLY and OK...
Restart the computer, it will tell you "you've used the system configurator to change the way windows starts" click ..dont show me this again an then OK.
This will keep the update program from running when windows starts, but you can still run it from your printer software.
