I have Windows XP 64 Bit and am trying to get AVG to work but I got this message Local machine: installation failed
Installation:
Error: Action failed for file avg7core.sys: starting service....
This driver has been blocked from loading (1275)
Any help on how to make this work or suggestion to see if any anti-virus works even a trial

avast has been updated to x64 and is free...

Nod32 has too, but it's not free (I think it's funny that Nod32 is 64 compatible)
