    Frustrating times with my desktop, as you can tell from consecutive posts here. Had a lot of issues yesterday, so did a system restore to a month ago.

    Could not reinstall AVG before the restore....I was getting an error message each time I tried. Redownloaded..same thing.

    After restore, different errors, but still cannot install.

    Worse yet, I apparently have been to AVG forums in the past, but had no idea what my password was. They've sent me two, and those don't work either! Argh! From what I've read here, maybe I would get no help there, anyhow.:)

    Initial error message # before restore: 0x800736b1

    After restore, it's been various...last time: same as above and 0x80070091

    Maybe I should just go to this AVAST, I read about in another post here? Just as good, or even better? I've always liked how AVG doesn't hog and effect other programs I'm running.

    It wasn't a hog, but it's getting progressively worse with each update. I finally tanked it a month ago.
    I've been running Avira GET HERE and I'm very happy with it.Very light on resources.
    Avast is also good. http://www.avast.com/eng/avast_4_home.html
