i recently bought a new laptop and installed avg instead of norton. at roughly the same time i installed a Virtual Private Network driver for my uni network. now basically ever minute or so a black command window appears and vanishes within a split second, its not there long enough to read properly but one time i caught one line of it which refered to avg. does anyone have any idea what this is and if its dangerous?

AVG free or paid for? If paid for use avg support

You should have uninstalled Norton before installing AVG - did you do this ?

I would uninstall AVG (temporarily); then uninstall ALL parts of Norton (ensure you've got rid of all of it by Start>search>all files & folders then type norton and click search now. Delete all it finds.)
Now re-install AVG.

sorry i should hyave been more clear, norton is completely removed from the computer and it is the free edition of avg

In view of your post above, it sounds very much like a conflict between AVG and your Virtual Private Network. Can't suggest an answer though!
