After downloading and trying to install V8 nowt but probs with evrything off spybot Za it hangs after a few minutes then can only shut down by powering down after about 15 mins .Then when I start up its installed but half doesnt work .Cannot uninstall same thing happens . started from scratch and tried to uninsatll V7.5 first rather than let V8 do it same probs with V7.5. Finally gone back to avast .was quite happy with v7.5 bit not this latest nonsense

you have Zone Alarm ?

You have a conflict, remove Zone alarm or AVG

Why it works with 7.5 are you saying it wont work with 8 also it was turned off at the time off the problems . So one has to find a firewall tha t suits avg methinks not

There is no conflict between Zone Alarm and AVG .. one is a firewall the other an anti virus program.
I have ZoneAlarm which ran successfully with AVG 7.5 and still does with AVG 8.0.

Thats the problem one 8 is supposed to uninstall 7.5 Two tried to uninstall 7.5 it hangs and screws up the pc just the same

System restore to before trying to install 8. Uninstall 7.5 > reboot > install 8?
