Today AVG 2011 did an update on my windows XP. After the update it ask me to reboot my computer in order for the updates to take effect. That is what I did. After the computer started up it would load up to my desktop with all icon present but then when I wanted to perform other tasks the computer seemed lock up. Cntl,alt,delete would not even work. I manually disconnected my laptop and had to reboot in safe mode and with numerous other steps I was able to get the computer back to normal. Does anyone know what the problem might have been! Thanks!!!!

Hi -
There have been many instances of AVG 2011 crashing computers and causing major conflicts with other programs -
Can you get to Control Panel > Add Remove and delete the program - AVG 9 was , and still is very stable -
From the AVG forum , any other installed security device , including Windows Defender , should be turned off or removed to run AVG 2011 -
The want full control of the system by themselves with no other security running -

Thank You -

Make sure to use AVG Remover: http://www.avg.com/download-tools, instead of Add\Remove, in order to completely uninstall AVG.
Personally, I'd switch to some other AV program.

After the fun I have had with AVG over the last few weeks -

Also a remover is always available from RA Products Uninstallers

@ Broni -The remover in that link for IObit is great -
I ran the IObit normal remover and it still left half the program there - Fred DeVires has done a great job with that site -
All the Toolbar removers are also very good -

Thank You -
