    Or my Sony DSC-H50, I just bought this, second-hand but not used much apparently. I'm using Avira and I cannot transfer my photos because a virus seems to be stopping it. If I remember correctly, it also happened when I used AVG. Any ideas as to why this is happening? Thanks!

    No idea -- could be lots of things. You need to do a thorough antivirus scan. I would recommend Kaspersky or ESET over Avira. I recently had to clean a client's computer and Avira wouldn't disinfect it -- but Kaspersky and ESET did.
