It's because you are using a version which they no longer support Jaminxz.  All you have to do is download the latest version which is AVG7.5 and normal service will be restored.  see http://www.pc-pals.com/smf/index.php?topic=20681.0

:welcome: 

I think Spybot S&D is a little outdated now, and doesn't update frequently enough for my liking.  Malwarebytes appears to be a good product, and has been recommended by several forum members.  Never used Perfect Optimizer, but I am always wary of this type of program, as some registry cleaners can do more harm than good.

I had been using AVG 8.5 which I would have recommended to all. Forced to change to AVG 9.Internet and PC slowed down to crawl.
AVG 9 has a major problem, I  have deleated it and now use Avast.

I've heard better things about Avast than I have about AVG. :)
