Windows 7: (avg or) win 7 security blocking program installs+updates

(avg or) win 7 security blocking program installs+updates

I tried installing admuncher and update to Acrobat Pro 8.0. With Acrobat, when I select update from the help menu nothing happens. I figure this must be avg av software, or a win 7 security feature that is blocking program installs+updates (my guess it is more likely Win 7). I don't know where to start to solve problem. Only account on Win 7 is my admin account.

It could be a security setting or an addon in your browser.

Run the AdMuncher installer as an Administrator (Right-click the AdMuncher installer and select 'Run as Administrator'. When prompted, just click Yes). Same as Acrobat. Right-click the Acrobat shortcut and run it as administrator and try to update.

Make sure AdMuncher or Acrobat are in the list of exceptions for both AVG and Windows Firewall.

My new windows 7 rig freezes during downloads, installs, updates
I will start by saying I built the machine myself and originally I thought it was a ram stick, found one that I took out and the freezing stopped but it was the coincidence. It will freeze sometimes within 5 minutes or 1 hour. It is seemingly random. It will freeze with the full 16gb of ram and...
