Thanks, I've made a note of those for future reference.
I managed to get a computer expert friend of my dad in to have a look yesterday. After telling him all of the information I had gathered here he spent a few hours sorting it out, getting back AVG & Zone Alarm & automatic updates, so thanks everyone you have been very helpful. :8} It would have taken me alot longer than four hours, but I'd probably already spent that amount of time trying to find the answers and reinstalling the software only for it to give me error messages I didn't understand. :robotindifferent:
You are welcome and glad to hear you are up and running againHave a good oneFindley
