corrupted download maybe?

I agree with The Sack, a sound download of AVG definitely is a valid win32 application, either download AVG again and try that or upgrade to avast4 at click here

I posted here about the AVG program and everyone advised me to uninstall Norton first, which I did, then I downloaded AVG and it's very good, surely you can try again aa AVG is free. Cheers

Two anti virus progs is almost always an ugly combination. Definitely a no no.

...and paid for the pro version.however I did'nt set the auto updates daily initially+ caught "bugbear" but found Solo(freebe) to remove it,only lost 4 files.Point is avg+solo ran happily sideby side.

but if i uninstall norton and install avast4 will i not be open to every virus going while i am installing avast ?it took about 45 minutes to install it and 2 seconds to get rid of it!

True but its the best way to do it...

Download avast4 first but don't install. Log off the internet, uninstall Norton AV then install the avast4 prog.
