    You put the bin file on your desktop,and then point AVG to that folder.

    If that fails,try starting the computer in Safe Mode,then start AVG and try again.

    If that fails too,then the file could be corrupt.Re download it,put it on a USB stick,transfer

    it to your computer.Don`t burn it to CD/DVD.

    The file you need is HERE

    One other thing I would say,If your sensible on the Internet and you read up about security

    you shouldn`t need an Anti virus at all,especially on slow old dialup.
