for the past week I have been getting an AVG pop-up message, saying update requires restart, and the AVG tray icon is greyed out with a red exclamation in it. I select restart and the pc/laptop,(got this problem on both machines), reboots. When it starts up again, it takes about a minute until the message pops up again! I have tried a repair installation, using the latest build-138 version, and also tried a complete un-install, re-install, but this hasn't worked. I have also tried to change the update manager settings to 'immediately update and confirm if restart is required', which is what most people are saying will fix the problem, but ths hasn't worked either. I have run a virus-scan, and found nothing. I have swept the internet for answers, and everyone seems to have different fixes for the problem, and these fixes seem to be hit & miss, as they don't always work. Could someone please help, as I am now considering using a different anti-virus, cos it is really pi$$ing me off.

Try uninstalling and reinstalling. I've seen that happen to quite a few lately and the uninstall/reinstall trick worked every time.

Hope this helps,
