AVG 8 Free and Vista

  Jazzyboo 16:42 22 Jun 08

I downloaded AVG 8 free edition and no matter what I tried I cannot get my Windows Mail to work. It kept coming up with a system error. I downloaded AVG 8 again and made sure all the correct boxes were ticked. It still didn't work. I then did a system restore back to the day before I installed AVG 8 and I then had on it AVG 7.5 and my Windows Mail worked. Any idea what the problem is? AVG 7.5 is now obsolete so I really need to upgrade, but at least my Windows Mail is working

Refuses to work on my Vista rigs as well, although it's fine on my XP pro machine. The laptop has Panda Platinum on it.

Try another antivirus product maybe:

It's not fast, but will do the job.

Not fast? Probably not but look at what it`s doing and what you get for your money, or rather for nothing:

I've got AVG 8 on a vista laptop and it's fine (except for it wants to update every time you start up) mine was a clean install on a new machine. Maybe it's because you are upgrading. What if you uninstall 7.5 then use 8? What is the error that shows up?

I uninstalled 7.5 and attempted to install 8.0 but it would not install. I have now doiwnloaded and installed Avast and that worked. Thank you all for your help.
