Well i dun have any problems with avg 9 since i installed it. I used the basic edition on my laptop and the network edition at my company's workstation. All the computers previously have AVG 8.5 installed, i just started the AVG 9 installation and it takes care of the rest, even uninstalling 8.5 for me
What error message that it appears before the installation terminates
Red type appears in a box that says a problem was enclountered when trying to complete the install. I think it said the usual about having everything in firewalls turned off.
But this is a raw install. I'm rebuilding all the programs and there's nothing on the HD.
Last night I reran it again with XP firewall off. No change. This machine goes to a 4 port switch. But so does the other one on the homenet and AVG 9 is installed on that. I even transported the folder of AVG from Programs Folder to install it locally, but that just runs the same routine.
Is there any point in looking for AVG 8.5 to just get something on the drive for virus? I don't have any virus problems usually. I won't use Kaspersky. I prefer the light touch for security programs.
Could some stray network setting cause the block. At the end of the download it apparently goes out to look for something at AVG-- like provide a serial number for the free user-- and can't do it.
AVG charges for each machine if you only paid for one it might be detecting that.
If you've tried to load it then something is left on the HD and should be removed to restart the loading.
I corresponded with AVG and they sent me a program to remove all AVG files from my machine before I loaded AVG9 since I too had a problem at first.
I never did find out why which is frustrating but it works now.
Ok, well Firefox has a downloader. That's the only thing I used to get the
download. How exactly is that avoided? There is nothing else on the machine-- it's a new scratch install I'm just getting going.
Only other thing I can think of is the Cnet source or whatever their mirror was.
