    Network Problems


    Hello All: I just got a new laptop never owned one before not real savy with it i have a network problem something is not allowing any virus updates to be downloaded i can't update any software except microsoft
    i also want to use zemana keylogger but no updates for that either i can get on internet ok download anything,tried to install bit defender antivirus but can't. Avast would not work either finally got AVG to install ok but won't allow me to update.I think it might be the windows firewall but i don't really know for sure.Any Help would be very much appriciated Thanks oldstumpy

    Do you have two anti viruses installed- Mcafee and AVG?
    First step remove one of them.
    As regards the firewall issue-
    To allow a program through firewall go to-Control Panel\System and Security\Windows Firewall
    click on "Allow program or feature through firewall"
    Now find your antivirus there and tick both Home as well as public.
    If you could not find it you may add it by clicking on 'Add another program'button

    Did you click 'ok' button after adding and allowing them through firewall?
