Brightsun, sorry to be anti-climactic but I cannot help but contribute an opinion since I once used AVG and abandoned it (as did most techies) when they bloated it up several years back.

All of this can be avoided by uninstalling AVG and installing Microsoft's own new free anti-virus suite which is much less complicated, installs in 30 seconds, updates itself, runs a Quick Scan and then pretty much disappears completely forever unless you encounter a threat.

Just my two cents.
