If I might direct this back to the graphics driver, download the XP 32 zip from here. Unzip it, but don't try to do anything else.

Right click My Computer, left click manage - device manager. Right click ohn your graphics device, and select Update Driver.

Say no to Windows Update, then Install from a list, and Browse to that folder you unzipped. Once the OK is hilighted that says it's ready to run the update, so do that please.

Reboot, check for change.

Are you wanting to keep AVG or would you be open to replacing it with something else?

MSE...Microsoft Security Essentials or Avast. I have one of the two installed on the 4 systems in my house and have had no issues with either.
Below are the links for you to check them out.

Please download Avast from my signature below. Please make sure you do the registration as it is good for a year or more. When it is due simply just reregister it.
Avast in my opinion is better because:

It's FREE to the Home User
It Updates it's Definitions daily
You can scan Individual Files, Folders and Drives
No buying new versions every year

Microsoft Security Essentials provides real-time protection for your home or small business PC that guards against viruses, spyware, and other malicious software.

It should work great since your OS is a Microsoft product also so there should be no compatibility issues.
