Try right click on the AVG icon in the tray by the clock.
Open User Interface, double-click Resident Shield
- Uncheck the "Activate..." option, click "save changes"
- Double-click RS again, check the "Activate.." option, click "save changes.

Thanks for the help, I tried and it didn't seem to work. When I reboot, it came up still that the resident shield was not activate and the email scanner not activate. After I installed AVG 9.0, email and resident shield showed not active. I found on this site how to activate email scan so I did that, but rebooting makes them not active again. Any ideas why this might be happening?

thanks again
