Windows 7: Windows 7 Home Premium: Please help...Programs Will Not Update

This morning I tried running the nVidia updater again. First I got a runtime error and the thing closed. Second time the geforce experince screen opened and tried downloading the update but it said it could not connect to the nVidia servers.

how do you create the new user account (and delete the old one)?

Hi,
User Account - Create

You don't delete the old account just change it to a standard user but that is after seeing if the new admin account functions well.

Hi,
Completely your choice but Avast free is highly used a regarded around here
I personally use Panda free but anything but MSE is an improvement especially after all the windows updating problems this past year.
I used MSE for years and I just could not use it anymore with all the update issues it and the update system in general were popping up all over the place it made no sense to rely on MSE anymore.

MSE is the slowest scanner ever developed and that I know of has never found anything and if it ever did some where it is never able to remove what it found.

When the MSE scan is done and I have the results, then I'll get Avast and run that one, too. We'll see how they compare. When I'm installing Avast do I need everything in the checklist (the list under customize installation)?

Hi,
Just make sure you uninstall MSE if you install Avast in uninstall a program and also use this
http://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2483120

It is also a good thing to do to disable windows defender
Installing Avast should do that for you but it should be confirmed as disabled

So I should completely uninstall MSE before I do anything with Avast? MSE isn't one of those programs where you need some special cleaner file to get rid of it all, is it?

Hi,
You can wait until Avast is installed before uninstalling MSE
Yes all have special uninstallers that should be used too
