Hello,
Is AVG 9 Free still available to download? I am still using 8.5 and would like to upgrade (I cannot use the new AVG 2011 because I am still running Windows 2000). I have held off upgrading to AVG 9 because of the "system hog" concerns, but now I feel I should make the switch before AVG 8.5 is no longer supported. Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Just bear in mind that the support for AVG 9 isn't timeless.... This was posted http://forums.avg.com/ww-en/avg-free-forum?sec=thread&act=show&id=110229#post_110229 recently by kodl AVG Manager.

Thanks for the replies! I downloaded the file from the AVG 9 post suggested but my computer says it is not a "valid Win32" file and won't open it. All other links I've found to AVG9 lead straight to AVG2011.... is there an active installation file for AVG 9 or is it unavailable? Any thoughts how much longer AVG 8.5 will be supported? (on a completely different note - if I need to upgrade my OS to XP Pro - how difficult is that process?) Any help/thoughts would be appreciated. I really love AVG and don't want to lose it. Thanks in advance, Meg

Thank you for your quick reply..... but I still get the "not a valid Win32 application" error, and it won't open. It also says there are 0 bytes in the file?

Hello MrsStew,

mentioned error is related with file corruption caused mostly by hard disk failure (or instable Internet connection).

Please check your hard disk for errors, then download new AVG installation file and check its MD5 hash sum according to this stickie.

Thank you

Please Help Me...

Hi - I have an urgent situation and being pc clueless I'm losing my mind..... I updated to AVG 9 this weekend from 8.5 (still running windows 2000) and now the computer restarts itself one,two, three or more times without warning. Then it runs chkdsk and scans the fat32 file system. It usually restarts while on the internet. Any help would be appreciated. I've already turned off the scan system environment and that seemed to help for a day. the system has already restarted 4 times today!

Meg

edit - avg update was the only thing to change on the pc...

Hello MrsStew,

Please update your AVG and run full system scan.

Afterwards, provide us with event logs and with Autoruns tool output (as compressed .arn file) for further analysis.

Thanks
