Is your AV upto date ?...Normally this will happen if you have not updated AVG recently.
Update and reboot

Forgive me if you are upto date.

thanks for responding, yes i check for updates everytime i log on, on the zone alarm centre under antivirus monitor it says it is not doing so,and is greyed out,

i have just looked again at zonealarms control centre, and it says that the feature has expired after one year,and wanting me to upgrade,

Maybe trying a reinstallation of AVG and Zonealarm will cure this,maybe you have a conflict going on somehow....
Have you downloaded anything lately that may be causing this issue.

i cant think of anything, i will uninstall them both and try again, thanks.

Uninstall all Zonealarm features,use this to clean out any redundant registry values. click here


Download Zonealarm free click here

You will have to spend a little time configuring Zonealarm again.

Check the date on your computer. The same has happened 3 times this week when peole ahve accidently moved the date. (dbl click on date in taskbar and it appears on screen - if you move to check a date in the future and click OK by mistake it will change to that date)

checked the date and time and all are correct,removed zonealarm and did a search of the registry, re-installed but it is the same as it was, on zonealarm it says anti-virus not being monitored and underneath it says feature has expired,i am using windows firewall at the moment,should i try another firewall? thanks in advanced.
