Running AVG9, two weeks ago it stopped booting and several hours of work points to an AVG update about that time. sec=thread&act=show&id=44013If the issue persists after removal of AVG could you please describe the booting issue with more details?
Hello, Please try to remove AVG with AVG remover as described here:
I recently upgraded our AVG antivirus network security to 8.5 on all machines, set everything up per the instructions (and actually removed and reinstalled everything), and I have confirmed that scans are running per the schedule set up via AVG Admin Console, and it downloads updates and the clients grab updates from it okay, and it shows the correct version of the virus db and program.
However, scan results will not show up in the scan results screen of AVG Admin Console. I don't have an answer other than to say that the AVG client sometimes fails to write scan results to the central database.
System resources were used at a high level, all attributed to AVG programs.
I never authorized continued payments to this lousy company, but they took information from my Pay Pal account and made it anyway.
However the last modified time at least tells you that the scan ran and when it finished.
On the PC running the Admin console you'll find a SQL database called avg8, and if you run the query: it will show you what data is in the database.For example, to block a webiste called active.com", add a line like: 127.0.0.1 ads.Placing a "#" in column one of a line makes it a comment.

I would appreciate someone telling me how to fix it or replace my brand new computer.
