I've been using AVG FREE edition AV ...forever. For a free AV it has worked to expectations and most importantly it is familiar to me.
Recently I have been getting the notifications to upgrade AVG from v9 to v2011. So I did.
The install went smoothly. Booted into Windows and AVG is running in the taskbar - no prob. But, open AVG and all the AV modules are inactive. Several different attempts to activate the modules were unsuccessful, including the "Fix All" option.
I am now back running v9.
Has anyone else experienced this? Know what went wrong?
- I did not uninstall v9 before installing v2011. I let the installer do that.
- I install AVG on my D: drive*, not C: with the OS. This has not been an issue before.
- I do not recall doing anything manually to enter the Free license number anywhere during the install. I seem to recall this being already entered in the box so I moved on.
