Cannot receive emails

I am running XP using Outlook and cannot receive emails although I can send them succesfully. I have just added AVG 8 (free version) and my emails have stopped at the same time so I will try now to uninstall and see if this cures but any other ideas? Thanks...

Maybe try and stop the AVG mail scanner and see if that helps.Just go into Components.Email scanner and untick scan incoming messages.This may work until you can sort it out properly.

No need to uninstall, try turning off email scanning first.

I've tried unticking all the email scan boxes but it will not activate changes.

Strangely, emails now coming through now after 2 days without one. AVG scanner still activated (will not respond to unticking boxes) so wonder if provider server problems. Thanks, buteman and Graham.
