    Did you remove AVG from your startup folder?

    I poked around on google a little bit, and it seems the people who have this problem are people who upgraded their OS, e.g. from ME to XP, and after they added SP's to their current OS. Did you do either of those things? And also, did you completely uninstall your current version of AVG before you dl'ed it again?

    I don't understand why someone would have a problem w/ AVG and XP running together, it runs fine for me, but I did a clean install and dl'ed AVG afterwards, so maybe it is the upgrading process that does it?

    I am running AVG and have had no problems with it running on XP. Are you downloading it using dial-up or broadband? Either way it could be a corrupted file during download but it is more likely with a dial-up. Make sure that after you have deleted the application you remove all files and folders. Sometimes you may think that you removed the program but there are still files from that program on your HD that could be causing the problem.

    i have a clean install of xp pro. my xp and avg dont get along at all. i also noticed when i downloaded the service packs, the avg icon replaced the regular icon in the add/remove list. it also kept freezing up and was kinda jerky/stop n go action. much like a hard drive on the fritz. after i got rid of avg and its leftovers, xp runs great. i now use norton 2003 with no problems. i have used avg on other versions of windows (98, me) with no problems whatsoever.

    Richy I'm assuming that you are infected with those viruses. You might wanna try these:

    [1]Trend Micro - Free online virus Scan
    [2]BitDefender Scan Online

    Give that a shot and see if those work for you.
