    Hi there

    I am trying to download and install AVG but then it tells me a 16 bit windows subsystem is not suitable for running MS DOS and windows applications. What does that mean?! I am using Windows XP home edition and its probably about 2-3 years old now. Does anybody know what this means and if/how i can fix it?

    thanks!
