I seem to be getting more & more of these messages,what causes it & how can, i cure it? For example i use avg 8 (paid for version)& I have to dissable the firewall to see the other computers on my home wireless network ok,but when I enable it again & try to close the avg interface I get the above message. I have emailed avg tech support but they do not answer my emails except for the automated reply.

Have you given AVG permission to access the other computers?

You shouldnt need to disable the firewall there should be a facility within it to put your home network into the TRUSTED ZONE. If it gives you this capability you need to give the first and last IP adresses of you home network. To get this type IPCONFIG /all from a command line. Hope this helps.
