Customer Question

My computer is "not fully protected" (AVG) when I type "Fix All" I get a message "Update failed". I've contacted AVg who confirm everything should be up to date and they say the problem is with Microsoft. I have Windows XP.

Run COMBOFIX and it will take about 5 minutes to complete tops. This is a FREE scan and it does not install anything on your computer, it runs from the command prompt!


1) Save it to your desktop

When it is done, you will get a notepad with the report.

After that, close the notepad, restart your computer, and everything should be back to normal.

Sorry - I'm being very stupid.... I've clicked on the "download" and clicked on "AVG 2012" but nothing seems to be happening

JACUSTOMER-5ee4uegf- :

Sorry - but as you are not there I've contacted my store and they've told me to take the computer in to them for help.
