Antivirus software won't load

Post by jhagie on Tue 19 Oct 2010, 12:13 pm

Hello, my name is Joni. I have a Toshiba Satellite A205-S5825 that I have been working on for the last week. This is the computer that my husband takes with him when he goes out of town. Well, it has been down for about a year - it wouldn't connect to the internet and I was convinced he had aquired a virus that destroyed the air card. But I have the system up and running again after doing a system restore, but now I am left with the task of trying to download AVG. I keep getting prompted for proxy server information and I have no clue why or what I need to do.

Please help. I will not let anyone use the laptop until I get an antivirus program installed. I want to use one of the free ones that are out there, maybe AVG won't work and there is something else I should use.

The OS is Windows Vista.

Try removing AVG.
