Did it stop connecting after you installed Trend, which firewall was on there previously

Perhaps using winsockfixxp will help

Use another PC to download and save to disc

the phone connected or the modem but it just shows up as cannot display page

after trend was installed it said proxy settings but itried that in internet options

drop firewall couldnt disable it so i try to use system restore to retrieve avg but that

didnt work .so more or less microsoft is just about the only firewall i got right now.

i dont know my IP address other wise i would try that put in trend


takes long to download avg cant wait for hi-speed

If it is on a CD then remove any other anti virus and firewall programmes you have installed, Install Trend, though you may need to run winsock fix afterwards

If you are downloading the Tren installation file, do that before removing the existing firewall and anti virus

Run disc clean up and disc defragmenter and also clear the prefetch folder in between
