interesting occurrances here; despite having rebooted , my computer clock gets put to 00;01 and my AVG internal clock is also out of sync with the world; have the latest avg updates had a bad entry in them?; when I boot up my pc I am now having to press F1 as I apparently have a bad checksom when the computer loads;( it is either that or from the large a 2 update) I have not yet resorted to uninstalling and reinstalling AVG but may well be heading in that direction
having spoken wth my computer technician, a new battery should be with me at the beginning of the week and hopefully the problems sorted after that; each time I load up tower the date on PC has to be reset, and the AVG icon is black ; I am hoping to be able to resolve my threads later, so others can learn from this ; my computer tech did ask why I did not keep my PC running conmtinuously ??to keep the battery charged ?? first I ahve heard of THAT "need", let alone of the existance OF the battery; and i would have thought I spend sufficient time with the PC on to boost the battery?
what difference does switching off overnight DO TO it? my tower is never left ON;
and I am told thast the battery "recharges"? I am somewhat non-plussed that a battery IS inside my pc, considering my pc is also attached to the mains supply for its power!! contradition in terms perhaps?
and ??where are the settings for the CMOS? I do not have an "instant" camera here!!
