Conflict installing AVG

Mixed ?

Specs: Windows XP HomeXP3, Pentium 4 and 1.5gb
My Display Adapter which is VIA/S3G Unicrome Pro IGP is in conflict with my newly purchased AVG Anti-Virus program. Efforts to uninstall it via the Control Panel is unsuccessful. When I restart it's back. Any help will be appreciated.

When was the last time you did something for the first time?

By "Efforts to uninstall it" I assume you mean AVG (not the Display Adapter).
If you paid AVG you ought to be asking them about it.

They probably have an uninstall program, if not use Revouninstaller free.

You might be better off with Avast free edition.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Sorry I did mean the Display Adapter with the intention of installing another brand.

Yes, when you have a conflict you could go either way - in this case either change the display card or the AV. I guess I would probably dump the AVG because everything was OK before you tried to install it but that's just my own view.

If you want to replace the card then uninstall it from Control Panel and power off. Change the card, reboot and install its software. I think it is the presence of the old card that is causing it to attempt to re-install its old software.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Thanks Derek for your response. What you're suggesting is that I replace my present card with a new, more updated card. Couldn't I just download say other software? Or wouldn't that match my present card. I have just bought a new one-year license from AVG and would like to use it.

Well, if you want to tackle the card rather than the AV then sure, the easiest first step is to go the card manufacturers webpage and see if there is a newer driver software version. You have to ensure that the driver matches the model number of the card and follow any instructions carefully.

It is possible that this will fix the issue.

"My Display Adapter which is VIA/S3G Unicrome Pro IGP is in conflict with my newly purchased AVG Anti-Virus program"

That's extremely unlikely.
How did you come to that conclusion ?

Tell us the details of what you did, and what happened.

Did you install AVG BEFORE you installed the software for the video adapter and AVG was working fine BEFORE you did that ?

Do you have any other anti-malware programs installed ? AVG DOES conflict with some of those.

Did you install the free version of AVG 2011 or the paid version ?

It's VERY common for people to install the software for a video adapter the WRONG way.
