Many thanks dibblydufuss. Not sure if that would do the trick but will keep it in mind if all else fails. On reflection, might be simpler to download direct from AVG direct onto HD. Thanks again anyway.
Meshuga - I suspect you have put your CD-RW into a CD-Rom drive. If so, stick it into a rewritable CD drive and you should be able to do the transfer. If it still doesn't work, right-click the file, go down to properties, then uncheck the box that says 'Read-only file', and Bob's your Uncle. (To cut a long story short, in some circumstances it is a matter of doing this once you have transferred the file onto your hard disk.)
(NB If you are using a CD-R, not a CD-RW this won't work as all files will always be read-only.)
Using a CD-RW disk in a CD-ROM drive shouldn't cause any problems unless it is an older model which might have difficulty reading the disk (CD-RW reflectivity levels are very much lower than that of a CD-R).
I keep a copy of all such utilities, applications on CD-Rs used in multisession form and installing is exactly the same procedure as if doing it from the hard drive.
Hi accord, my reason for saving download direct to cd-rw was so that in the near future when NAV comes up for renewal I would have AVG to hand and could try it out. I have done this before and it worked. The pc is only a little over 18 months old and since it is a cd-rw drive (E) surely there is some way of putting something on the disk without it being "read only" I`ve tried taking the tick out of read only box as was suggested but it goes back again, even though apply is ticked. Regards.
