AVG 8.0 Search Shield problem

  ray27 12:06 01 Feb 2009

I have AVG FREE 8.0 and it has been fine up till now but when I go to use Google or any other search engine the green tick has disappeared and is replaced by a grey question mark and the box pops up and states that AVG search shield was unable to scan the page.
I have made sure that the option in the AVG user interface is ticked ok
I am using Internet Explorer 7
Can anyone tell me what has gone wrong?
Should I uninstall AVG and reinstall it ?
Any advice would be most welcome cheers Ray

Have you done the usual antimalware scans on your computer, ray27?

Yup I have used the Windows live care and scanned using AVG

I downloaded an update from the AVG site and after a reboot as requested everything was OK

1. Download the latest AVG Free installation package from [free.grisoft.com]

2. Run the AVG Free install file

3. Choose the Uninstall option and follow the setup wizard, when you get to the part to remove user settings, select it.

4. Restart your computer then...

5. Now reinstall AVG using the setup file you got in step 1 and update it.
