Hello arizonafred,

please accept our apologies for any inconveniences caused by described situation.

I would like to ask you to provide us with email identifier of communication with AVG techsupport (AVG# or G#) for closer analysis.

You could also click on my profile and use an option to send me the email with this information.

Please be informed that AVG Firewall together with Windows 7 should be working properly, if no conflict or corrupted settings was happened.

Thank you
