I have a Emachine W3503, Windows XP, Serive Pack 3. This computer had MANY viruses on it. I got them cleaned. Spybot, Super Antispyware and Malwarebytes all say I'm clean now.
The internet works fine and the whole computer seems to have no problems, but.....AVG 8 , will not update at all. I have turned off Zone Alarm and tried to update. I have uninstalled and reinstalled AVG 8 and that didn't help. I've looked at my settings in Zone Alarm and they all allow AVG to do what it wants. I looked to see if Windows firewall was on but when I tried to look, a pop-up said that :
"Windows cannot start the Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) Service."
I have another computer that will not update AVG 8 automatically, but does just fine manualy.
Another computer that I fixed 2 months ago, was updating AVG 8 automatically just fine then one day it just quit updating and now it won't update.
Is there something I'm doing wrong here....all of a sudden ? I want to keep using AVG products but this is gettin crazy !
Any and all help will be very much appreciated !!!!

The problem turned out to Spybot Search and Destroy. After I removed it, AVG works just fine !!!!
