I have had a lot of trouble with AVG and my machines here lately. I have tried to remove the program using the "Add Remove" Windows and also loaded and tried Revo Uninstaller on this machine. Loaded Windows Security Essentials. All is well except...

 

On startup the machine is looking for AVG and I have to go through two popups to get to my desktop.

That is what I ran. Revo doesn't show AVG as being on the machine. These are just startup items that I can't find and get rid of. AVG is removed  by all other indications. I will try again.

If you cannot solve the problem with Revo, because this is a startup problem download AutoRuns. In FIle of the menu bar select FInd and type avguix.exe. See if anything pops up.

That did it!

 

Thanks very much. Those little things just annoy me.

 

I have had some great support here at BC in the last week with this Vista machine and my Win7 machines.

 

This site really is the best thing going for the home PC user.
