Ever since downloading the recommended upgrade of the AVG Free, my pc has become unstable and keeps crashing. I keep getting messages saying that any unsaved data will be lost, then I get the blue screen to press any button to continue. Is there a connection between the two? Has anybody else found the same? Are there any solutions
With the care of two multi-boot computers, I have had instability problems too.
I am working on the idea that even when installing direct from the website (which claims to remove and reinstall AVG7 free, I feel that the markers which AVG puts into every drive, make a conflict between the new and old codes on other drives.
I seem to have solved it on this one by bullying my way and upgradeing each system. I have yet to prove it on the second computer which is not at this address.
Uninstall AVG7 and see if your system is back (or as near as possible) to the way it was performing before the installation.
I've installed AVG7 Free on two systems, XP Pro and Windows 98SE, and both are working as expected except that, on the latter system, the e-mail scanner configuration in ZoneAlarm had to be added (avgnet.exe and avginet.exe)
Only a suggestion, but it seems there is a significant difference between the 6 and 7 versions in the way that the program coding is written. If the new AVG comes across traces of the old, I suppose it is possible to have a conflict which doesn't have (in old terms) an error trap. Hence it freezes.......Well that's only my guess.
