It seem to remove sucessfully but when checking the security, it still shows AVG as running....Is there anything you can suggest to remove the program before I install a new anti virus??

User Account Control by bonzodog
Hi As sole user of my Win Vista Home Basic system, I have turned off UAC. How can I prevent system messages telling me I have turned off UAC every time I boot up. Also, although I am administrator, I have been unable to delete a folder left after the uninstallation of a program. I am told I need permission, from whom???

I disabled phishing filtering and defender but that didn't resolve the issue. Am on a simple Win2003...

IE7 pages open very slow when page has any video by Stu Wilson
I have a new computer running Vista with a broadband connection. A lot of web pages open very slowly. I found that if I disable Shockwave player pages load fine. Also if I disable the protected mode (UAC) pages load fine. Is there anyway to get pages to load normally without having to disable these items?

Security causing mail problems - Webroot by SStone
To those who were kind enough to reply, thank you. In addition to antivirus protection, tech support put Webroot Spysweeper on my computer. It has an email shield and real time scanning. That was why I couldn't reply, forward or send attachments. The fact that it mentioned "protection from attachments" gave me my clue. Add spy sweeper to the list of things that can mess up email. Email...

Fingerprint reader can't be found: 0xe7210005 error message by Jeff
Suddenly, Vista can't find my fingerprint reader sensor. IBM just replaced the palmrest and reader, as well as the system board--the reader worked after that, then the sensor disappeared a week or so later. Anyone have a clue here where it went or how i can get it back or reinstall it? (I don't want to do a restore point) Thx, Jeff
