Just had this small window open when I started up this morning - AVG (core) not found winerr=2
The software will not start...any help appreciated.

I would suspect that your avg program has been corrupted or even deleted.

Have you tried reinstalling it?

Didn't know you could do that...thought I would have to download again!!

justme is correct. If you still have the original download of AVG saved in a folder then delete the program and click on the AVG setup Icon to re-install again then up-date from the site.

All my downloads for antivirus. spyware etc are saved in a folder of that name so I can just reinstall if required with out downloading again. j.

sorefingers, if you still have the original download then you can reinstall it. Just don't forget to update the virus database or you will be using a very out of date antivirus program.

If my memory serves me right you will also need to enter a serial number. I think that this is the same number for everybody, but check your old emails to see if you still have a copy.

Driver (core) not found winerr=2

This problem occurs on Win2000/XP systems when AVG thinks (probably due to back coding) that it is win95! It therefore tries to look for it's driver files in C:\Windows\System...etc whereas it "should" be looking in C:\WINNT\System32...etc. They reccomend downloading the latest version which has fixed this. I've just done this and installed it and it is now working perfectly. Hope this is of help to everyone. :-)
