AVG - Re-Bootng after EVERY update

  Dirty Dick 17:56 21 Dec 2007

I'm running AVG FREE on Desktop (XP) & Laptop (Vista). When I update on Laptop , no problem but when I update on Desktop I have to re-boot to complete update EVERYTIME. Idid post on a different thread, but felt this was hi-jacking, so I have posted this as a se[perste item. How can this happen?

If the message appears even though you rebooted, please perform following procedure:

Please run AVG Control Center->Update Manager->Settings->Advanced tab-> use "Delete update temporary files" button.
Reboot your PC.
Try to update again

Any help,

Download latest version (click here) and CCleaner (click here). Disconnect from net, uninstall AVG, reboot, run CCleaner (files and registry cleaner), install new AVG.

Hi.Do what X7-250 says ,When I had the same problem as you ,thats what I did to get rid of it.Mind you up-dates look about 24hrs behind.but works fine.

there have been several updates since you posted this; on recall I think only one has required a reboot to install correctly ; does your coloured icon turn black each time it required the reboot?

... EVERY update has required re-booting. Still can't fathom out how to stop it. the icon on the Taskbar turns black, and if I try to to a further update, it says it has failed, until I have re-booted the PC.

I have run CCleaner and done a "spring clean", and deleted lots of stuff I no longer require.

Any further suggestions grateful.

try this

go to

click here

choose section 625 then
click here

click here

then click here

when the dialogue box comes up try with add/remove components; the agreement number may be shown ;

then retrace your steps and head for the repair option ; again the dialogue box should come up with your agreement number on it;

carry on and do the repair job;see if THAT sorts it?

If you tried X&-250 fix it should update automatically.Right click icon on quick start.Go to Launch AVG Control Center.Click on up-date Manager.And at the bottom click on properties.Put the dot in Update Immediately.Make sure there there is no dot in update upon next computer restart.Apply Ok.And I presume that you are talking about AVG Anti-Virus.
