    I didn't know it was called the vendor's site. But that's where I downloaded AVG 2012 from. I no longer want to have anything to do with any version of AVG. Past Present, or Future. Thank you for sending the link anyway.

    From your previous replies, I realized you didn't want AVG. My comment was in response to another post, not yours, looks like it has been deleted now. Anyway, that person posted a link to d/l AVG but it wasn't AVG's site. I think link of a reputable source should be posted.

    Anyway, good to know things are back to normal for you. And might I suggest that you should backup your songs & videos, just in case.

    A friend, from here at TS suggested that I use a Flashdrive, which reminded me that I already have, for my music. Now I need to get busy and do it for my videos Thanks for the post..

    Hi, Just a quick thought, be sure to only have one firewall turned on at any one time, two will just try to block each other, and won't give any better security to your PC.
    Also note that some of the Antivirus programs have a firewall included too, in that case with W7, in 'System and security', just turn off the Windows firewall.
    Personally, since using W7, I have used Microsoft security essentials (MSE) and the W7 firewall. Not one problem on my pc whatsoever.

    That's what I'm using now too. I used to insist on using things like Norton, Avast (AVG boo hiss ) PC Tools, Zone Alarm, anything but what came with the computer. Because, for some reason, I thought they would be better.
    Now that I'm using MSE and W7 firewall. My computer is running as good, if not better, then it ever has. Shows you how much I know:) I know about only using one firewall thanks.
