XP Freezes After AVG Updated

For the money it's the best hard drive tool currently out there though, and you will doubtless use it again. I recommend UBCD4WIN which is an excellent tool to have in your armoury for PC repair. kevin Reply PCRepairMan 19th June 2012 [emailprotected] Yes, this will boot into an XP-like environment but you can access all your files through the built-in graphical file explorers. After going back into the system with UBCD my AVG folders still had the changed name that I gave them. navigate here

You should try the UBCD4Win registry restore wizard now to see if that can help take you back to a point before your problem started. It is worth noting that you should ideally run HDD regen on every partition if you have more than one as this may be the Windows or boot file location for The screen is black with the words "Safe Mode" in all four corners and at the top center of the screen it says "Microsoft (R) Windows XP (R) (Build 2600.xpsp_sp3_gdr.101209-1647…. Thanks in advance for your help!

If you can't then try the ‘Hirens boot CD' from http://www.hirensbootcd.org/download/ You can burn the CD using the free software at http://cdburnerxp.se Once burned, run this and select ‘Mini Windows XP', So two questions: 1. You can then fire up one of UBCD4WIN's included file explorers such as A43 and look for the avg files, renaming as mentioned above. The good news it, after restarting my computer and selecting to "start windows normally", it worked!

It's HUGE. How do I get to the file management program that will allow me to rename those AVG files you listed above? And, yay!, it restarted properly! Situation is still the same with connection to server failed. March 31, 2009 16:46 Re: Update fails #11 Top jagger Novice Join Date: 31.3.2009 Posts: 34

Thank you for helping us maintain CNET's great community. It repaired one "D" sector but not the other, the one in the first sector that I think it causing the boot problems. Here is my method to get the cheapest Kaspersky Pure and be fully protected against viruses and malware. Have read that switching the SATA drive's mode from AHCI to IDE is apparently of use but under my F2 menu, it's only giving me AHCI or ATA.

Backup your important files straight away and go shopping for a new drive. Download the program and install onto your computer.

The only avg files I find are in program filesavgavg 10 and even then no avgidseh.sys any thoughts? Okay, I followed your instructions to the command prompt.

Reply PCRepairMan 9th May 2012 [emailprotected] Again, if it doesn't recognize your hard drive (c:) then there's probably a hard drive repair required. 99 percent of the time HDD Regen works check over here If you had a virus removal just before being unable to reboot, it might not be this but may be the virus has deleted or renamed some Windows files. Once all is said and done, may I pay you something for your ongoing advice? But, like I said, I was able to get on and then I went to my control panel and uninstalled AVG.

Thank you. March 31, 2009 16:46 Re: Update fails #5 Top jonath Senior Join Date: 31.3.2009 Posts: 32 Sorry for omissions - now collected here I hope. I have linked to the paid version of MalwareBytes because it tracks your system in real time, keeping spyware and malicious websites away.  It is singlehandedly the best tool I recommend Have you tried the CHKDSK mentioned in the article above? his comment is here If you're running Windows 7 64-bit and use AVG, you might want to hold off on the update; if you've already updated and are experiencing this problem, AVG offers this quick

It seems you are right about it not always being AVG at fault, but any ideas why it happened in the first place? Just kept resetting (both systems). You saved me from going out to get a new desktop at least for a little while.

I will say this though - that even before I renamed my AVG files and folders with the UBCD4Win disk I decided for laughs to boot up normally and just wait

fido456 28th March 2011 Wow, so many of us having the same fault, thanks for doing the article. I did find an F12 diagnostic I didn't realize I had, because it's a Dell (Alienware). They will be accessible from the Start menu under ‘File Management'. I guess it's an occupation hazard for writing low-level software like this.Just to confirm what Richard said above, the offending update has now been removed.

Similar issues to above: started with avg error, used Midnight Commander to remove files, now stuck at crcdisk error. It will go through the 5 stage test.
