Anti Virus wont load or update properly

Since my lad's PC had the Blaster virus yesterday it wont take the AVG latest update. I get an error message at the end of the downlaod and the Control Centre (AVG) doesn't load properly.

I have uninstalled/reinstalled/updated but I get to the same point each time.

I downloaded one of the Microsoft recommended AVs and when I came to activate it by dialling up a similar thing happened.

He has XP.

and installing avast! home edition but this also 'encounters an error' almosty immediately.

Any idea what might be causing it please. Do I have to disble something on Windows first?
