My sons laptop was down and I wanted to put a new AV programme on. The only way I could think of was to download AVG onto MY pc, and then burn it to disc. The only burning programme I have is Windows Media Player which burns music fine but I was stuck as to what to do with dragging and burning this programme onto disc.

If Windows Media Player does not burn programmes, then what free programme is recommended for XP that doesnt take up much space?

You can burn to a CD in Windows XP and DVD in later versions without 3rd party software.

Example for Windows XP:

Oh wow I never knew that. You can put copies of any program on a CD?

Yep, sure can.
Although, the built-in functionality can't be compared to other third party applications.

A USB (Flash) drive perhaps?

Hi,
Don't forget about UltraIso. The trial never expires, and really the only limitation is the size of the file that you are working with. I use it all the time, and it took me a long time before I actually bought it. The only real reason why I bought it was to get rid of the constant shareware reminder. LOL.
