First of all, welcome to BC.
As I googled this, I found that you have been out there asking question, so you probably have pretty much the same information as I do. It appears the the setpow.nec is a part of the registry, specifically Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00. Alas, the registry still remains one of the last great unexplored frontiers for me, perhaps another member will read this and be able to further assist you.
It would make it easier to help you if you would provide us with the make, model, and the operating system of your sons pc.
As you saw when you googled this subject, there are quite a few others out there who have been having similar problems, and there have been a large number of people suggesting the use of AVG. I have been using it for about six months now, and like it just fine, I had similar problems to yours with Panda...that and a total lack of customer support. If you remember when you were in grade school, your report card had a section on it grading you on how you interacted with others, both of these AVs would merit "doesn't play well with others".
Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life. You never know when one will leave you.
