this looks more like conflict with other (previously) used protection application. Can you please gather MSinfo32 output, upload to favorite online storage and provide us with link to it? So we can analyze possible conflict with other used application (or remains of incorrectly uninstalled).
I am trying this as AVG Customer Service has not replied after 2 attempts over 5 days.
I have a Dell Vostro 200 running Windows XP SP3 with a Intel Core 2 Duo E4600 @ 2.4GHz and 3 Gig of RAM. This past Sunday I downloaded from the AVG website the latest full version (AVG 2011 V 10.0.1204 from a previous full version (9 I think) I had and all went well. Problem is, I can't get on the internet all the time and when I do it's minimul. Yahoo will load but no pictures, links in Yahoo are of no use as I click on them and get tired of waiting for something to load after 5 minutes. I even tried going through AVG to their tech support (Help pull down menu) and it wouldn't even load. It kept trying however. Today, 325 kb (yes, kb) worth of e-mails took 2 minutes to load. I have been through all the setup screens I can find thinking something is set to MAX protection but nothing. I have disabled the Link Scanner and that did no good. I have switched the Firewall on and off and no help there either. The only (and I mean only) website that will load like it used to, no matter what, is by banks website. Any help would be appreciated. I read through 4-5 pages of posts here at CNET and did not come across this type of issue. Oh Yea, if I dissable AVG, Internet runs like it did when I used version 9.
