    Can't download anything

    I have a dell inspiron but i run windows vista basic. well i had AVG free edition and also the malware anti-malware installed, a few weeks ago i noticed that there was a problem with my security settings so i checked it. it wouldnt let me choose avg so when i went to open the icon it wouldnt even let me do that. i tried uninstalling it, the computer let it uninstall the icon and everything but when i go to download something else it won't let me install anything and in my security settings for the computer it still says AVG is there but turned off and it wont let me turn it on...ive went into safe mode and tried to uninstall avg even and it still wont let me...i just need to get some kind of anti virus on here and figure out why it wont let me install anything...
    please help!

    Can you run malwarebytes at all?
    It will not let you run AVG, but try the malwarebytes, please let us know.
    Thank you.
