Hi there, just noticed that my AVG is out of date and it won't let me properly update, since I've been without the full function of it.... I've noticed my computer running extremely slow and was wondering if you can help me fix my issues... thanks

Here are the latest updates. If you can not get them installed we may have to go another route. Please post specs of your computer ( i.e. Operating System )

it's actually WINDOWS 2000 , but in regards to which update I need for AVG, I'm not sure....seems I have 3 different versions on my desktop all which aren't 100% functional and I'm not sure if they are to be removed or just updated and which one!! or if I should completely remove them all and download it again......?

Yes do that. If it for whatever reason fails follow these instructions.
When the removal is finished I suggest the following :

Download install and update Ccleaner
After installing and updating go to options - advanced and tick prompt for registry back ups
Now Start up in safe mode
Do two runs

1) Click on problems and tick all. Click on analyse. At the end you will be prompted for storing a backup.
This will be stored, as a default, in My documents.
2) Click on cleaner click on analyse and accept all files to be removed.

Make sure you have the LATEST version of AVG (7.5 range); earlier versions are no longer supported by AVG.
