I am running XP in an older cpu. Recently I had new (used) RAM installed after a crash. RAM was bad but system works fine now except for my free AVG, which has always worked well (daily auto scans). Now after only a minute or two into AVG scans they stop, my system reboots, makes me recover my active desktop, and a window says it has recovered from a serious error. I am unable to do any AVG scan, auto or manual. Thinking a complete uninstall and reinstall might work I tried that with no success. Is there some setting I can do to correct this? Hate to have to disconnect it all and drag it back to the tech shop....big hassle. My Superantispyware works as fine as it always has before and after so it is just an XP setting (??????????). Any help greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Thanks Jack! I had not previously heard of Avast. It was my initial mission "to fix" the AVG/XP issue, but hey. Following your suggestion I checked out some reviews of it and did not hesitate to download it for a spin. I've only done one whole system scan and a few miscellaneous files so far but it seems to work just fine. Of course I'll find out in the long run I suppose. It won't be my only anti-virus program. Thanks again.
