Trouble with AVG 9.0

by ghyselp / November 25, 2009 2:48 AM PST

I just downloaded the AVG 9.0 security. Now I cannot get into my screened emails from my internet provider and also, I cannot get onto facebook. If this AVG is absolutely necessary by Dec. 1st, why is it having so many glitches. What can I do to get my facebook and mailbox screener back?

I cannot get Facebook nor my email screener to work after installing AVG 9.0 on my Windows XP. I previously had AVG 8.5. I did not uninstall it before installing the AVG 9.0. My email screener is my local DSL provider through my phone company. How can I correct these problems?

try uninstalling AVG and checking that your email and facebook work without it, then try reinstalling AVG 9 from scratch. If they don't work when AVG isn't installed its not a problem on your end.

Did you uninstall your previous anti-virus before installing AVG?
