What the exact error message, please?

I have 4 copies of this file on my system. One should be in the system32 folder, one in the system32/dllcache. The other two are just in backups.

Do a search and verify that you have one in System32 and one in the Dllcache folder.

Thanks for the responses, I have been too busy to get back to it till now. The full message is "avgcc.exe. Unable to locate component. This application has failed to start because MSVFW32.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this." Also get the same message for "avgwb.dat". Thanks again.

avgcc.exe is the control center for AVG anti virus. And avgwb.dat is what protects your computer against internet bound threats.

Have you had any avg related issues lately?

Reinstalling AVG would be the first thing to try

Thank you all. As far as aware there have been no AVG issues, however I will try deleting it and doing a re-install. James

Hi wavemaker, Sorry to hear about your trouble.

About this -->

You should always try using the programs uninstall feature as opposed to just deleting it. Hope that all works out well for you.
