Greetings to all...
I am having a problem Accessing 2 D-link Routers (DIR-615 & WBR-2310). I have both a laptop and desk top computer. Both have Windows XP SP 3 (lap top approx 2yrs old). When I attempt to access the routers on either system, through Win explorer or firefox, the screen freezes and does not allow access to the router. I did not realize that I had this problem, for on the desk top had installed one of the routers on an earlyer version of AVG (maybe 7) and was able to access the router. The desk top and the laptop, have few programs in common, other than ZA 8.0.298.000, winpatrol 17.0,Windows Defender Version: 1.1.1593.0, and AVG9 (most up to date version). When i attempt to shut down avg...for the most part it will not allow this, but if I turn off what I can.. still not allowed to access the routers. If I completely uninstall AVG for each unit, I then can access the D-links with no problem. I also have not installed/not allowed the explorer plug in for avg.
I really do not like not running AVG, but I need access to the routers...sure hope some one can help me on this..
could you please check the situation with the Zone Alarm uninstalled (or using its most recent beta version)? Is the issue resolved after disabling the AVG network redirector?
- Press the Win + R keys.

- Select the View -> Show hidden devices menu item.
- Expand the Non-Plug and Play Drivers.
- Right-click the AVG Network Redirector and Disable it.
- Restart the computer.
