I don't use AVG myself but there are a number of others in here that do. While you are wating for someone here to help you, you might try this link also for the AVG forums which has a number of sticky posts for different issues.
I let my Norton expire and downloaded AVG 7 and ran updates and scanned computer (it took several hours) and I'm not sure it is working. When I try to open my email so I can see if I have any messages it will not receive (it says "Your server has unexpectedly terminated the connection. Possible causes for this include server problems, network problems, or a long period of inactivity. Account: 'mail.cityofbryan.net', Server: 'mail.cityofbryan.net', Protocol: POP3, Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Error Number: 0x800CCC0F" When I go to control center + set email scanner to receive email it says that the email scanner is not fully functional. It says personal email scanner is not active, but when I hit the activate button I cannot view the email. What settings am I supposed to use. I have win98, zonealarm (I have turned it off. Why am I having so much trouble? Thanks anybody that can help. I've read the FAQ's and they don't help me to understand. Advise soon because I do not have anti virus protection. I want to use an easy and understandable program. Thanks for any help.
