I followed the 'dsl reports' link and then went to 'megaload' site, downloaded, made my silent installer. Disconnected my cable modem, uninstalled AVG Free, rebooted, set a system restore point, installed my silent installer of AVG Pro, connected my cable modem, updated and everythings working great. Already ran a scan. No issues found. It's free for a year. I can live with that.
Thanks for the heads up,
Eddie

That's good Eddie, I'm retired and couldn't afford to have something go wrong with my computer. I was concerned that a virus might have been on board, so here's to happy computing..
