    Hi, all!

    I hope this is the right section to be posting this in.

    I've been having a lot of issues with my computer, a refurbished/modified Sony Vaio.
    I just got it back from a computer repair store where they were replacing the fan, as my old fan had up and died. The computer had been slow before then, but after getting it back from him, I've found its performance has taken an absolute nosedive.
    While trying to disk defragment, AVG came up with multiple security warnings. I allowed it to exterminate the threats without much thought. Afterwards, I had realized that I believe it messed with my NVIDIA software. Ever since the AVG debacle, the NVIDIA Control Panel refuses to open. I have tried to install the drivers for my graphics card, but in going through the setup, it gives me an error saying it could not find compatible graphics hardware.

    Any help with getting my NVIDIA back would be greatly appreciated!

    Specs:
    OS: Microsoft Windows XP Professional
    Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) 2 CPU T7400 @ 2.16GHz (2 CPUs)
    Memory: 2046MB RAM
    GPU: NVIDIA GeForce Go 7400

    Let me know if you need any other information!
    Thanks!
    Wolf

    Fixed it! After searching about AVG, I was able to restore the NVIDIA components that it had disabled. Sorry for the trouble!
