AVG is the worst app on the net and I'm not kidding.

Completely uninstall it and test. Disabling will have no effect.

I did a little test.
I upgraded to AVG 9 on an older laptop, running Vista.
voila, same problem every 30 min.
Disabling it didn't help, after uninstalling AVG, it was fine agin.

genious. it makes sense considering that i upgraded to avg 9.0 and windows 7 at the same time. since i was looking at windows 7 problems and not avg this must be it. it all of a sudden started working a few days ago but yes that must be a solution:PP

windows vista home 64 bit
 
 

hi all, i dont know if it will help but im running windows vista home 64 bit with avg pro. my comp came with both and i have had it for 13 months now. i have the same problem with windows minimizing by themselves, but it only started in the last 3 months. it did not do it in the first 10 months, and somtimes after i reboot it wont start doing it right away, but it always starts again. maybe it is caused by a recent avg update?

Minimize v Resize MCE
Don't know whether anyone else is getting the same but if I resize MCE and view in the taskbar I still get live TV/video, if I minimize, then the picture is not live, just a snapshot. It seems to still be live in WMP when minimized; which is as I would expect. :shock:
