Windows 7: Houston - we have failure to launch

05 Dec 2010   #11

7 x64 Ultimate

For anyone who finds this thread; the best solution to this mess is;

  • here
  • then uninstall AVG
  • never look back
What a bunch of idiots.

Thanks to all who offered help. It was all good advice. Once I followed the procedures in step one, to prevent AVG from operating, my system booted right up into the rollback restore point.

Sadly, here it is 2 days later than the noted post, ON the AVG website and AVG still doesn't get it.
