Just bought an hp ipaq 5550 in new condition and am trying to instal firmware updates from the HP site but all I can do is download to my desktop and then access is denied when I try to open it and my AVG reports that it contains a trojan. I have tried a number of different downloads but I am stopped from opening them for the said reason.Any ideas --thanks

AVG may well be reporting falsely. I don't run AVG so regret don't know how to stop it.

How do you use it? PDA that is. Do you sink it with your PC or load to a SD memory card or what.

Thanks for replies-- I can load with an sd card ok--music --images etc and I can load directly into the documents folder but these downloads from HP for the firmware etc can not be opened. Interesting the point about a false interpretation by AVG the best of it it I dont really know if I need these updates--is there a way of deciding this?

Try loading them on to the SD card insert it then if it does not auto load, go to the card in the PDA and click or double click the file until you find what loads it

PS look for a exe file to run

It syncs with WMDC but I cannot download the updates because AVG stops it. I dont fancy disabling AVG to do it for obvious reasons, I have tried downloading from various different HP sites but the result is always the same and it wont download because of the trojan.

Please post a link to the download site so that I can scan it.

Sorry but dont know how to post link--but if you go to any HP site ,enter ipaq 5550 and click on downloads you will see what I mean--PS if you can tell me how to post a link I would be grateful--I have seen them on E bay and it looks useful.
