Windows 7: AVG Antivirus Free

07 Jan 2016   #1

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1
AVG Antivirus Free

Been using AVG Antivirus for years. Never had a major problem with it...

Firstly I hate stupid Zen it's un-needed additional software. Luckily when I installed AVG on my brand new desktop for some reason it didn't include the Zen which I was thankful for...Unfortunately I did a system recovery on my older Laptop computer running Windows 7 and installed the AVG Antivirus, stupid thing came with Zen but whatever...

My problem is however I'm trying to add a folder or file to exceptions and it won't let me. I've uninstalled AVG completely reinstalled it and it still will not let me add a folder or file to exceptions...On top of all that when I used the AVG Removal Tool now the damn thing when I log off user goes to a black screen and has to be manually shutdown with the power annoying.

I ran a start-up diagnostic thingy it said Software Error then froze at 78% and didn't conclude the scan. Again had to manually shutdown. Don't understand why I'm getting this as I've just literally did a system recovery a week ago.

Does anyone know why though I can't add a folder or file to the exceptions list? Not getting an error message or anything when I click add exception and then chose exception type as folder, I hit browser computer I direct it to the folder and hit OK but then nothing happens.

Let's see if junkware-removal-tool will get rid of it:

Please download Junkware Removal Tool to your desktop.
  • Shut down your protection software now to avoid potential conflicts.
  • Run the tool by double-clicking it. If you are using Windows Vista, 7, or 8; instead of double-clicking, right-mouse click JRT.exe and select "Run as Administrator".
  • The tool will open and start scanning your system.
  • Please be patient as this can take a while to complete depending on your system's specifications.
  • On completion, a log (JRT.txt) is saved to your desktop and will automatically open.
  • Post the contents of JRT.txt into your next message.
