AVG 2011 have not passed windows logo testing

Specs: Windows XP
I am trying to install AVG Free on Windows XP professional. In the final stages of the download I receive an error that "non plug and play drivers" have not passed Windows Logo Testing.
Microsoft strongly reccomends that I stop the installation as it will impare or destabilise correct operation of the system.

Until I download AVG free I have no access to the AVG free forum to seek advice.

Is there a safe method of allowing this download to run?

Im not the sharpest of persons on technical computer language, could anybody help with an idiots guide to solving this problem.

Thanks for the reply masterofnocrack, ive tried to contact AVG customer services to confirm that the product is suitable for use with XP, but being an AVG Free customer they refuse to supply ang support and confirm that their product is suitable for use with XP. I cant access the AVG Free forum until I download the product. Talk about a catch 22 situation.

Their reluctance to confirm in a single statement of the suitability of their product makes me feel unsure and wary of installing the program.

There are also other horror stories of persons ignoring windows warnings and their computors crashing.

There is advice on the net to alter my driver signing option to "Ignore, install software and dont ask for my approval" this will cancel the windows warning, but does it alter the way that the windows XP program deals with the download ???

Im totally confused !!!!

"The Best are Avira And Microsoft Security Essentials."

That may be one opinion, the best Free AV I have ever used is Avast Free. It has the best real-time scanner of all AV's plus you don't have to schedule scans or updates. It scans while you surf the net and updates automatically ...no muss...no fuss.
Much better than the above 2 mentioned IMO.
I have used Avast for almost 10 yrs now and install it on all the repairs I do daily.

PS: if you try Avast, be sure to get it to do a boot-time scan so you will be sure the PC is clean.

Some HELP in posting on Computing.net plus free progs and instructions Cheers
