Trying to download AVG free

by akfuller9196 / February 26, 2010 12:14 AM PST

My computer is running Microsoft Windows 2000 and i'm trying to download the free edition of AVG. I click to download, save to the desktop, and when I double click the icon on the desktop to install it takes me to a page titled "supported Platforms" and it appears to be just an information page, I don't see what i'm suppossed to do next.....

Sorry, I can't tell you. The versions were:
1. Professional
2. Server
3. Server Advanced
4. Datacenter Server
That's all I know. Now wait for the AVG representative here to tell more. From the list I referenced in my previous post, they know how to tell the difference.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
