I assume youi mean that you upgraded over the top rather than wiping your hard disk and starting from scratch. One of the problems with this approach is that all the old problems remain and anything that can go wrong will. Try starting from scratch. Back-up all you important data etc files, then wipe your hard disk, install the OS, then your security software, then all the updates from your security. then all the ipdates from Microsoft.

Can you get on the internet and download a new anti-virus. If you can download a new one AVG very popular. And free,If you can do that, And then erase your old one,!!!
