Serious bug in AVG 7.5.519: avginet.exe uses 100% CPU core
AVG Free 7.5.519 has a serious bug in avginet.exe.
Very often, the morning AVG update fails and in the task manager you can see
avginet.exe is using 100% CPU core and it remains in deadlock!

Uninstall the AVG, and use Avast free 4 Home anti-virus
It is low resource using, and vista compatible.

As is AVG free. I use it on Vista and have had no problems whatsoever.
There are however, some concerns that Avast! inhibits superfetch....Google
for it.

I have been using Avast for years on XP, and now Vista; with no probs.
MVPs recommend it as well.

Re: Serious bug in AVG 7.5.519: avginet.exe uses 100% CPU core
re download it
instead of doing the uninstall option
use the repair option
see if that works
if not
uninstall the whole program
usce ccleaner to remove all temp files
Use ccleaner to remove all registry files pertaining to avg (if it leaves
any)
now reinstall avg and see if it works

I have been using avg for 10 yrs with no problems.
In fact I am using the avg 8.0 pro now
It had some bugs but most is fixed as of the latest version
and in a few months they are coming out with the free version

It does not lock up on my HP Desktop over a dialup connection; do you have
enough RAM memory? Have you visited Grisoft's website and checked the FAQ's?
Often the answers for the "pay" version also apply to the "free" version.

mikk,

I have a subscription for the paid version of AVG AntiSpyware 7.5. I
could never get the license key to work, whether I typed it in the license
activation box or copied and pasted it. I accepted the free upgrade to AVG
Antivirus but could not get the new license key to work for it either. I
then uninstalled the AVG Antivirus and reinstalled the AVG AntiSpyware and
the license key would not activate the software.
However, the license key DID work when I sent a support request. You
cannot contact support without a valid license key. Grisoft then send me an
email with the same license keys and of course they would not work either. I
decided to uninstall it and never install it again.
I will never use Grisoft's software again. It's not worth the time and
trouble.

C.B.
