    hi

    you can disable that anti virus program which makes to you troubles. you can download AVG Anti-Virus version 7 from that link, its an excellent program and it's free, after you download it , have the update, because you live in the middle east it's better to download that program and have the update in the morning or in the early after noon.

    hi
    AVG, IS A POPULAR ANTI VIRUS PROGRAM AND ALL DOWNLOADING OR UPGRADING SO THAT THE DOWNLOAD SITE ALWAYS BUSY SPECIALLY IN USA AT THE MORNING, AND BECAUSE THE NIGHT IN USA MEANS THE MORNING IN MIDDLE EAST, IT'S BETTER TO GET THE PROGRAM AT THAT TIME .

    it's a very good uninstaller, please download it and use it, it will remove any program you want.
