A while back I posted about my AVG completely stopping for no apparent reason. I removed it entirely. The reinstalled it. And immediately started getting a 0xc0000005 error message and no applications could be launched. Went back to an earlier restore point. The problem went away. Tried a few more times. Always getting the same result. Finally gave up on having AVG on this computer. I had been relying solely on the Windows firewall and Defender programs plus Malwarebytes.
I gave Avast a try for 30 days with no problems. Then finally decided to purchase last night. The only difference between now and the past month is that I purchased it and activated my license.As soon as I restart my computer this AM. It went back to that same stupid error message and applications became unusable. Went back to a previous restore point and it's back up and running again. I've looked and looked throughout the web for a solution but I'm unable to find anything that works. AVG offered to lookinto it for me but I would have to buy a maintenance plan which I don't want to to do.
Tried running the sfc /scannow command on cmd. This is what it told me:
Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations.
Does anyone know what else I can do. Other than giving up on 3rd party anti virus programs completely?
