AVG 8 always wants a reboot when updated

  morris948 20:44 05 Jul 2008

Just recently, my AVG 8 Free seems to want the computer restarted every time an update is completed, is this normal behavior? in the past it just updated and that was all.

Does anyone alse see this, and is it normal now.

You may have noticed on other queries that this has been a recent problem with AVG. I resolved the problem on my computer by installing the latest version after removing the earlier one.

I had tried various ways suggestions off the Forum base to sort the query and the above was the only one that worked.

My version is currently 8.0.134, is this the current version? or is there a later version.

... but with no guarantees!

Try completely removing it (maybe with something like Revo), run a good registry clean and then reload.

Did that on my lappie when I had that problem, and that seemed to cure it.

I uninstalled and installed the newer version as described, that seems to fix it.
Now it works OK.
Thanks all for your help
