  1. I have tried to install AVG Free to a machine (P4, Win 98, 96MB RAM)
    I got following error message:
    Action Failed for File sporder.dll: Creating file
    -File Opening failed
    - No Such Directory


    even I tried in safe mode .... but no use... same problem
    Is there any solution?

    Sporder.dll is a file used by programs to work with the Windows LSP chain. Unfortunately this file is used by malware and some antispyware programs delete it by accident and break legitimate programs.

    This error often comes up when trying to download and run the program directly from the server. Instead, click on Save> Save to your Desktop. Once there, double click to set up.. If this does not work, you will need to check for malware.
