AVG 2015 fell over

Q: AVG 2015 fell over

I tried turning off AVG Watchdog, and now my AVG has completely fell over. I can't stop it running to use 'system restore', in the same instance it doesn't seem to be running, as it keeps telling me that it is turned off. I have tried uninstalling it, but it keeps telling me that it can't.  Any help would be appreciated.

Preferred Solution: AVG 2015 fell over

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: AVG 2015 fell over

Hi [email protected] If you cannot uninstall AVG via the Control Panel, I suggest you to use their uninstall tool to clean the installation and it's remnants. Download the version matching your AVG installation.AVG 32-bit: http://download.avg.com/filedir/util/support/avg_remover_stf_x86_2015_5501.exeAVG 64-bit: http://download.avg.com/filedir/util/support/avg_remover_stf_x64_2015_5501.exeAnd follow the steps under "C) In case the uninstallation fails, please use the AVG Remover tool".https://support.avg.com/supportArticleView?urlname=How-to-uninstall-AVG&l=en_US

We recently had around 150 PCs that the Group Policy Client service just started crashing on while users try to login.  We noticed the majority of them on Friday 11/13/2015 and its been a continual problem.
Originally I found this event that the GP Client service crashed

A:Bitdefender IS 2015 vs ESET Smart Security vs Panda IS 2015

ESS is overall winner imo. why?
* It's CPU usage is 0% in my system most of time. I'm using ESS 9 beta so mine takes 100+ MB ram but it will take less ram then it in stable version. Ram is not the issue here coz AV who use ram r better then who use page file to hide their actual ram. Ram is faster then HD.
*System impact is very less on almost every system i feel like feather in my system but it depends wut system u r using. If u r using dinosaur age system like atom processor with 1 GB ram & slow HD then it ESS will feel u slower. No slow boot time issue not even when doing gaming or multitasking.

Today we again released 2 beta versions in order to test a new mechanism that will allow to avoid some compatibility issues in the future. For this beta testing we set the rule that machines with Windows XP will be able to update only to version 2230, all other machines will update as usual to the latest version 2231.

We won't limit XP users in the future. This is just for testing purposes.

Changes:
- fixed problem with update condition for Windows XP users. Now users with XP shouldn't be able to install/update to build 2231 (NEW: AVAST 2015 R4 Beta 3(2015.10.4.2229))
- fixed issues with Outlook 2003 context menu (Outlook 2003 issues with new release)
- fixed crashing of service during VPS update ([2227/2228 BUG] Strange behaviour with manual VPS update)

A:Avast 2015 R2 SP1(build number 2015.10.2.2215)

Thank you @Secondmineboy! This may be just what I need, although I've not experienced the dreaded BSODs (yet) our Avast! has been behaving (..how can I describe it?) with an 'ultra-hardened' web site scanning manner that does not allow all connections. Happily, I'm able to log on here to MT!

Edit: I appreciated this thread because it reminded me, especially since I've been under the weather, that something was definitely wrong with our 8.1 system. This became noticeable after updating the program a few days ago. I'd experienced connectivity problems with sites such as Gmail & The Chrome Store (thankfully not MT) and most often when using Opera while somewhat less using Firefox, a notice from Avast! would alert the site's certificates were invalid, and Opera would advise trying again because of a problem with my VPN. The difference with this corrective update is Avast!'s VPN which I do not subscribe to is now gone! Ahhh, life's nearly back to normal.
Now, if I can only get over this virus... (It's one effecting my body, & not my computer system).

Hi there, thank you for taking the time to look at this! I'd appreciate any kind of help someone can give me.
 
My operating system: Windows 7 (64-bit)
 
Yesterday I fell for the SteamGuard.exe program which I downloaded from a Phishing site. I usually never fall for these things but I wasn't really thinking and stupidly went along with it and ran the program. There isn't all that much info that I could find about it online besides lots of other people asking for help too. I don't know exactly what it's put on my computer, or where. And I don't know how to go about finding and removing it.
I fear a keylogger may be part of it so I changed the majority of my passwords via mobile instantly. Steam, stupidly, requires you to use the desktop program to change passwords which would be pointless should there indeed be a keylogger on my system so I did the next best thing I could think of and deauthorised all other devices as well as locking my account out from transactions.
I have the majority of things I care about already backed up on an external HDD and I have good internet to re-download stuff so I can do a complete wipe as a last resort, but I'd rather try my options first.
Thanks again for your time

Now that you have properly posted a malware log topic, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a MRT Team member, nor should you ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.
From this point on, the MRT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the MRT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the MRT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply.

I bought this notebook last April and I've been using it for at least 4 hours every single day. I did found a black screw on my table early this morning then I turned my notebook upside down to see one screw missing. This does not affect the laptops's performance however it alarmed me. Yeah, it might have been unscrewed due to the laptop's vibration but this made me worry that my laptop might not last that long. I had not experienced this on my 5 year old laptop and I don't think it is normal. Just posted this to see if people encountered this problem too.

Dear rojun,
 
Welcome in lenovo community,
 
I'm sorry for what happened to your laptop, but i can say that it is not a common issue with the laptop,
 
My advice to you right now, is to send your laptop kindly to lenovo service center at your country for full check up, to make sure that we will not face this kind of problems again.
 
Kindly find the link below for more details,

Unfortunately, my elderly parents fell for a scam today.

Evidently mom was reading some news story online and they got some pop up saying they had a lot of infections and the hard drive was going to be destroyed shortly and to call this specific 800 number.

So what do they do? They call the number. And then they type in some stuff per their instructions which gave these people access to their machine. My mother then had the idea to call me and ask me if this number was legitimate or not.

I told them to hang up the phone with these people and to pull the plug on the computer immediately. It took some convincing but they did it.

I?m totally not sure what to do now. These people never asked for any money, but they had full access to their machine. My mother couldn't tell me what they had her type in to give them access but she did say something about the rundll32.exe. That's the most information I could get out of either of them.

I think I have to assume the worst in that the bad guys have access to anything and everything that was on the computer, passwords, etc. Luckily they don?t do any online banking or anything of that sort. But isn't the entire machine now a security risk?

I think I also have to assume that they installed some sort of backdoor to re-give them access to the machine once they turn it back on again. I've told them not to turn on the machine for now.

I also wonder if the bad guys could somehow get access to their internet gatewa... Read more

Hi JOVIL, sorry to hear that you are having issue with retrieving a  C.D. from the drive. I have looked into the issue for you. Is it computer still under warranty? If so, I would suggest that you contact HP Total Care at 1-800-474-6836 for warranty options.  If this number is outside your calling area, here is a link to the world wide sited so you can get support in your area.  http://www8.hp.com/us/en/contact-hp/ww-contact-us.html

I just got my computer - put my printer/scanner disk in and it disappeared.   So irritating.  Pretty basic function to have such an obvious flaw.  This computer is also noisy.   The fan runs and hums continuously.  HP all in one.
 
Now I have to take hours out of my day to find someone to get the disk out.  This is unacceptable.

A:CD fell into computer

@BoiseRE,I moved your inquiry, as you appended to a 3 yr old inquiry.Vertical CD/DVD slots do require that you snap the media into the holders.  No doing that allows the media to move within the tray, as you noted.  It is a human error.

@Graeme64,It is not a design flaw.  The media is supposed to be "clicked/snapped" into the holding tabs, because of the vertical design. Now, it becomes operator intense. How else would a vertical disk stay in-place. You could try to shake it out. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AFEFhFY3tLs

No problem dialing up and connecting to the internet.

It can ping the other computers as well as its own IP address.
The other computers can not ping it, althought the appropriate activity lights flicker on the switch.

I have removed everything from Network Neighborhood and reinstalled from the Windows98 CD.

So just like 15 minutes ago, my PC fell down. When I say fell, I mean the system unit struck the floor at a height of like meter (guesstimating the height of the table). It fell down because I was relocating my desk, the system unit is placed on another table (If you're asking why, I'm on a flood prone area so I can't place my unit on the floor; the table was the only thing to put it on to.) while the other things are on the desk. So I moved the desk closer to the unit then rotated it at 90? clockwise and pulled the desk to the right. I was struggling to pull the desk because one of the wheels is jammed. So I was looking at that jammed wheel when I was pulling it and then I heard like a bang. Checking the other side, I saw the unit is on the floor. I knew that my PC was fine because I was playing a song and it was still playing after it fell. The first thing that came in my mind is "Is the HDD fine?" and my answer is yes; and according to the spec sheets, my drive can survive a 30G~65G fall when it's working and I checked it with HD Tune with no problems. Plus the position of the HDD is upright so it's parallel to the direction of the fall (Does this help? Just for future reference).

Now the question is there any part that may be damaged? For now, all is fine.

When my PC fell down, I was actually surprised that everything survived considering that most of the parts are like 3.5 years old (GPU is almost 2 while HDD is 10 months). It gave me a mini-heart attack whe... Read more

About 30 minutes ago, my computer had a pretty hard fall off a 3-4 foot drop, it was a pretty loud crash. Immediately I tried to turn it on again, and it did a "disk check". After that it just sort of got frozen. So i turned it off, turned it back on, and everything seemed to be running normal, for about 10 minutes. Then it just turned off. I turned it back on, and i had even less time that time around, as eventually it turned off again. And it was making some sort of Clicking sound while it was on...

I have a panel on the bottom of the back of my computer, and im 95% sure there is a unplugged cord there that wasn't there before, I am thinking something got displaced or fell off in the crash, but i am not sure.

I unplugged it, and opened up the panel, but i know nothing about computers...I am waiting for my brother to get home to take a look at it. But for now. Does anyone know anything i can do or any help they can offer on what is going on?

The computer turns on, then will just turn off a few minutes later, without any warning.

And it doesn't turn off until a little after that.

IF it is my Cooling system, which might be the case, how can i confirm this?

A:My computer fell, need help

If you know what the CPU heatsink and fan look like and where they are located, I would check to see if they didn't get knocked loose. The fan electrical connector could still be connected and the running fan might be hitting something. The unplugged cords could be just unused power supply connectors.

If you aren't very familiar with the insides of the PC, I don't know if it would be a good idea to muck around inside since you could do more harm than good. An accurate diagnosis of what is wrong with the PC is very difficult to give from this side of the internet without seeing the insides ourselves.

I need to find a cd rom drive for this system that isn't going to cost me hundreds of bucks. The whole system cost me less than $200, well now I know why. I tried to call compaq, and they said that they will only sell me a CD-RW, DVD rom thing for $330. Heck no.
