Have just received this warning on another forum.

"if you run AVG anti-virus (either the full, paid for or the free version), the latest updates for AVG 2011 can break windows, making the system unbootable, even in safe mode."

This warning appears to refer to an update from several days ago, number 3292. I have just checked my AVG free version, having just updated, and am now on update number 3299, so I guess my 3922 update went ahead OK.

I'm on the paid version and my update as of yesterday was, like The Kestrel, 3299 and all seems OK.

between an AVG Free Update and Windows 7, which was said to stop some Versions of W7 from opening.

However, as we have had no rash of Threads saying "My W7 PC won't Open" I think that we can safely assume that the number of PCs, affected, was very small.

This thread is now locked and can not be replied to.
