I hope this is OK to post, and in the right spot... If not,,,
just delete... Aloha,,, Big
Having a lot of trouble:
After I deleted a Free AVG Anti-Virus Program,
and then tried to install a purchased Bitdefender
program... (Bitdefender Anti-Virus 2013)
I think this is how the problem started:
After I uninstalled AVG Free, and installed
Bitdefender... Missing Dll files, and some
exe. files corrupted...
I kept getting this flag,,, or Error Message,,,
after I installed Bitdefender...
Now there also seems a reluctance for the computer
to start or execute some programs... Now either
Bitdefender,, or I have corrupted the system...
I think this Vista system now needs to be re-installed,
maybe a complete clean installation of Vista.... By the
way I could not fine any support from Bitdefender,,,
Before the removal of AVG Free Anti-Virus,,, I use'd this
computer and the Free AVG Anti-Virus program for 3
years, not one virus, not one problem with the system or
the AVG program... The system, both the Vista OP system,
and the Computer,,, worked just great for three years...
Not one problem,,, and I mean,,, not one...
Either "Bitdefender",,, or my removal of the AVG program,
with my Revo Uninstaller Program,,, and trying to install the
Bitdefender program started this mess... Or I did something
to screwed this computer up, big time... FUBAR,,, I think... Now
I can't get either Bitdefender or AVG to load, so I have no anti
virus now... I have un-installed, and re-loaded both programs ten
I been working on it for a couple of days... That's not
good, as I push buttons first, and cry later.. Now I
might have the system completely FUBAR...
The computer is still is working... and does almost all
I want to do.. But, it's missing some files, others are
corrupt, some service pak's missing, some dll files,
"FUBAR", and the same with some exe files,,,
I have the following Computer, and Operating System...
Microsoft® Windows Vista™ Home Premium...
I am sure if this is a 64 Bit system, is that correct ???
My guess is,,, it's a 64 Bit System, but it must be
running some 32 Bit programs ?????? INFO Below:
The computer is working fine right now, and I have a
ton of Info on the computer, that I want to save...
I want to move all the INFO to an "External Hard-Drive",
first... Then do a clean install... Or Make a
I think I want to make a "clean" install of Vista,
but I don't think I ever got the "Install Disk's"
or I have lost them... Maybe I will buy a new
"Operating System" on E-Bay,,, a new Vista System,
in an un-opened box...
I think this is a 64 Bit version of Vista that I
have, and will try to buy a "Reload" disk, or a
repair disk... Is this a good move ???

I think I can get a new Windows 8 System cheaper
than, the old Vista system... I Think,,, but I
want to stay on Vista for the time being...
Any Ideas on repairs, or a "Clean Install of either
Vista or Windows *8...
Aloha, and a big "Mahalo" for your time and
