Everytime I run AVG it freezes up about 6 mins into scan. I have ran Spybot, CCleaner with know problems. I have Windows Vista and have never had any problems running it in the past. I uninstalled and reinstalled AVG with no soulution. Also when I try to enter my email or websites it say's it is unable to connect to site and it say's click here to check for solutions and when I do it comes back that no problem was found and then it connects to the website.
My computer freezes all the time on the internet.

Run a good scanner- Malwarebytes. I use AVG as a firewall- only.
