Im sorry if this is in the wrong place, im new and this seemed like the most appropriate place considering my situation.

Ok heres how my story goes: I learn about torrents so i tried Vuze and uTorrent. Neither one of them worked either because of port forwarding or uPnP or my lack of experience of both. So I did some researching and I figured it might be my firewall or any spyware remover i might have.

On to another thing: whenever I tried to access Norton Internet security I would get an error message and it would tell me to restart my computer. So I try to update Norton to see if that would help. THEN it tells me that Norton can't update because the update is not compatable with Grisoft AVG. SO THEN, I try to uninstall AVG but it tells me its protected or something. AAAND THEEN I saw on a forum that going into Run: and typing in services.msc, and stoping AVG's services might help. So i get in there to find out that theyre already stopped!

Plz...lol plz... i dont really want to reduce myself to begging but i need help ive been trying to fix this for weeks and its very...very......very frustrating and annoying. I will add any details you want me to add just ask.

I currently am running a Dell Optiplex GX150 with Windows XP Professional
Intel Pentium III Processesor with the old HD (about 9gb, 3gb of usable space) that was originally on there and a Seagate 160gb


Modem: DMX100 series WebStar by Scientific Atlantica
Router: Linksys Wireless-B BEFW11s4 v4
ISP: Comcast
Spyware blockers/ removers: Norton Internet Security, AVG Free Adition, Spybot

We will not give you any help at all with your torrent issues. Our Terms of Use state that we won't provide any help with P2P, except to help with their removal. I will tell you, however, that running AVG and Norton together is not a good idea. Are you running the free edition of AVG? You will want to uninstall that and keep Norton Internet Security if you've paid for it. You may want to try booting into safe mode for the uninstall.
