Hi, I am new to this site so here is my problem. I have been trying to download antivirus software and it will never finish the download completely. Also when I tried AVG, it said 14hours. Avast says 4hours. I know dialup is a lot slower but is this right? I did try AVG at one time a few months back and it only made my pc freeze up so I uninstalled it. Now as I try to dnload Avast, it will go for about an hour then it says "download complete". What is causing this? I am about to pull my hair out. Can someone PLEASE Help???????????

Thanks so much,

Hi cajun I am new here also But it sounds like you have something infected already.Have you tried to down load spy bot search and destroy yet. you may have to do it from safe mode.Also these fine folks turned me on to Malwarebytes that does a good job of getting rid of the bugs that block well known anti spy and virus tools.I had to have a friend down load spybot AND avast on his computer and put them on a disk and then load them that way to get past a blocker one time. Hope it helps a little. Wyer

Do you have a friend with high speed internet? School? Library? Neighbor? Relative? Dialup and large downloads are tough. If you can find a source to help you with a high speed connection then download the antivirus onto a usb drive or cd?
