I have Windows Vista home premium 32bit and decided to install MSE. I uninstalled AVG 9, then used the AVG removal tool to completely remove it - then installed MSE.
All went well, until the very end of MSE finishing the update and first time scan process, at which point my system hung. The hard drive was thrashing and I left the PC along for 15 minutes at which point I decided to switch off the PC. Turned it back on and as soon as I open an IE explorer window the PC freezes - tried this process 3 times. Then went into safe mode and did a system restore to the one I created prior to started. AVG does not work and the PC still freezes.
Any ideas what went wrong - I have a backup if all else fails and I could go a bit further back with the system restore.
Having got the PC back to working OK, there is one persisting problem. Zonealarm free firewall is working ok and is in the system tray and processes list(just did a shields up test as well). But a Windows security alert pops up to say the firewall isn't working. I know that I can stop the notification, but I am loathe to.
Is there anything I can do, reinstall Zonealarm, or just forget about it?
