How Do I: M - P?
Note: AVG Technologies do not recommend using this method to update because of the size of the update file. This is only recommended if there are reasons that you can not update from the internet using AVG.
If you need to perform a manual update first you will need to get the latest update files from the AVG Free website at the AVG Free Update Files.
The Priority updates contain the full virus database.
The Recommended updates include the database and new program updates.
The Optional updates include those plus additional files that may be of help.
Choose the one that applies to your system, if in doubt, get the recommended or the optional update file and download the file to a directory on your computer that you can find later. You must remember where this is because you will have to tell AVG where to find these files later.
After you have the files,
1. Verify and update your computer's time and date, AVG uses this info to determine if you have the correct files.
2. Open the Control Center,
3. Double Click on the Update Manager or select it then press the Properties button at the bottom of the screen.
4. On the Properties screen unselect the option labeled "Do not ask for the update source", click Apply and Ok.
5. Now click the Update button on the bottom of the screen.
6. In the pop-up window, click the Folder button.
7. Navigate to the folder where you had downloaded the update files into and click Ok. (Sometimes this needs done twice for AVG to see the file.)
8. AVG will update now with the file you had selected unless it contains the same as you already had.
That should be all you need to have updated your system.*

- How to Use the Fdisk Tool and the Format Tool to Partition or Repartition a Hard Disk - Before you install your operating system, you must first create a primary partition on the hard disk (disk 1) on your computer, and then format a file system on that partition. The Fdisk tool is an MS-DOS-based tool that you can use to prepare (partition) a hard disk. You can use the Fdisk tool to create, change, delete, or display current partitions on the hard disk, and then each allocated space on the hard disk (primary partition, extended partition, or logical drive) is assigned a drive letter. Disk 1 may contain one extended partition, and a second hard disk may contain a primary or extended partition. An extended partition may contain one or more logical MS-DOS drives.
After you use the Fdisk tool to partition your hard disk, use the Format tool to format those partitions with a file system. The file system File Allocation Table (FAT) allows the hard disk to accept, store, and retrieve data. Windows 95 OEM Service Release 2 (OSR2), Windows 98, Windows 98 Second Edition, Windows Millennium Edition (Me), and Windows 2000 support the FAT16 and FAT32 file systems.* Updated: 10/17/2009

According to emtwo, a.k.a. Michael, at The Motley Fool's HWTSC Board;
Sounds like in the page setup, in the footer dialog box, you have some carriage returns prior to the &u&b&d tag that prints out the URL and Date in the footer...
If carriage returns are present, remove them, and try to print again...if not present, I'd look at your print setup; it sounds like a margin issue.
Of course, when all else fails, you could simply remove &u&b&d tag so the URL will not be printed...
and in case you actually want to have the URL printed on the page for future reference, according to socorroed;
What I actually ended up doing after removing the tag from the footer is modifying the header tag to include the footer info and deleted some of the header info. Works great.* Great solutions Guys! Thank you!
