    Hi

    well, i installed win7.
    i customized my desktop & all...
    i installed comodo firewall & avg antivirus. & after i restarted my pc all my customization was gone!

    i got the normal aero theme & all (that i previously canceled)... + the system didn't allow my to run almost anything by saying something like "your current internet security settings prohibit running....." or something similar.

    so i uninstalled comodo firewall to check if this is what skrewed me. & no. so i uninstalled avg - & yes. this was the one. i now can run things. but for example when i want to customize mt desktop icons & show my computer on the desktop - i can't! i click it but nothing happens. so i enter the persenolize menu again - & the "V" that i checked there near show my computer is unchecked...

    how to set it to be good again?
    thanks

    There are alot more free alternatives than AVG. You can try Avast, Panda Cloud, or Comodo AV since your already using the firewall anyways.

    whitedragon: Do you get paid to promote Comodo? It seems like the only thing you talk about in every thread that I see you in.

    Why on God's green Earth would anyone want to run Comodo AV anyhow?

    Sorry for being blunt...err...opinionated.

    I'm sensitive to this matter because I was one of those almost lured by the Comodo Fanboy Association (CFA). I'm not saying that it's a bad product, it's just that some people take things overboard.

    I'd answer that but your astounding ignorance leads me to believe it would just be ignored.

    Nope I promote products that run well and do their job like they are supposed to.

    The better question is why on gods green Earth would anyone run AVG?
