Windows 7: Crashes with AVG?

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 RC1
Crashes with AVG?

In the last few days, I've had a couple of blue-screen crashes, apparently caused by AVG. The file shown on the blue screen is "avgwfpa.sys". Has anyone else experienced this? I would imagine that it's just due to things still being in testing, but figured it wouldn't hurt to ask about it.

I have had no problems with AVG but you could look at the AVG support site for some answers. :)

WIndows 7

Same thing just started happing to me.
It was runing super stable for days now.
Then this morning I updated AVG, then bam, a BSOD, my first one ever.
Restarted Windows 7, then 3 mins later another one.

I did a system restore, but now AVG wont start, even though I'm telling windows to let it start in Action Center.

Have you checked the windows firewall. If windows firewall is running you must allow the AVG files to pass through the firewall.
The list is on the AVG support site. :)

Windows 7 Build 7100 (x64)

My AVG just stopped functioning a few days ago... The AVG service would stop as soon as it started. AVG also refused to uninstall. But no bluescreens.

That's when I removed all my OSs and installed Seven x64; happy ever since. :)

W7 Ultimate x64/W10 Pro x64 dual boot main build-remote pc W10 Pro x64 Insider Preview/W7 Pro x64

The best build to be running on the 7 RCs is the latest 8.5 build and nothing prior to the 8.0 version. The 8.5 at first saw a crash back on the 32bit beta when first run there. The second installation however saw the problems with AVG corrected.

Presently the 8.5 has been running on the 64bit RC as well as having been on the 32bit and the Vista Home Premium x86 edtition without problems. A clean install of the RC would probably clear up a possible bad install of one or the other.

Dual boot Windows 7 & XP-Pro

Thanx for the quick reply Night Hawk.
I was able to boot to safe mode again, and found the setup for the AVG 7 I was trying to onstall. I then was able to click the set up and use the option to uninstall all of the files for AVG.
All's good now! (didn't really want to go thru re-install RC; legacy hardware and all...)
