Did you ever see a newspaper, magazine, or book written entirely in caps? You know why?? Because it's hard to read. Not only that, but it's rude & considered to be shouting. And no one likes getting yelled at. I'm asking nicely, please turn off the Caps Lock. Only use caps where they are required. Thanks.

So why are you still running AVG 8? It's old news. AVG 10 has been out for a while now. Either remove * & replace with 10, or wipe it out completely & replace with Security Essentials as suggested above.

EDIT: If you can't download anything related to AVG, your system is probably infected by a bug that's blocking you from fixing the problem. See if you can download & install MalwareBytes:

glennlm , since you can't download anything and it sounds to me like you have a trojan, try one of these online scans? Never used either so dunno...Possible AVG planted one? If you find one, I'd replace AVG for not doing a good job.
