Uninstall AVG, then do a system sweep with CrapCleaner, et al, then use SpyBot S&D, then degrag, then reload AVG and rerun the service...any difference?

how long have youve been using avg

it could a been couple of reasons

a bad install of avg

avg encountered a trojan it couldnt contain

you are able to run it if your confident everythings ok then you have nothing to worry

do a couple of trial runs and see if they hold out

there are malwares out there that crash AVs for example here is a thread about gromozon

,(sorry the thread gets clearer as one reads on) anyways, if any protection was 100% perfect securitry here would put their feet up and recommend it each time, but alas that is not the case so I really do suggest backing up ones AV with the link I gave you in my last post.
