Will AVG start in "Safe Mode"? I dunno, as my LAN runs NOD32, but if it will (repeatedly hit F8 while booting, ignore beeps) and try removing that way. Safe Mode does not load numerous drivers, giving you a "clean" start.

And don't look at so much Frankie Vaughn.

WW the reason i said turn off systems restore is when turned on, all system restore files are locked ie not able to delete. when turned off all system restore files auto deleted

Thanks jaybee2786, and everyone else, all methods so far have failed so its reformat time.
I have had to call in my tech support guru, she 's demanding seeing as its a Sunday call out £5 and a box of malteesers.
She's holding me to ransom, knowing I cant feed the pc software cd's, 10 year olds eh ?

Have you tried the http://www.freedrweb.com download?

I just hope you have tested a restore of your backup if you are going down the re-format route.

AVG Antivirus: I was cut off for hours today before I realised that this programme had updated itself last night. Then, suddenly, no web pages could be displayed. Something called Identity Protection had been added to AVG, after which :I was fcuked. After a complete uninstall, AVG was gone and my Browsers fairly thundered along, improved download speeds of 500k + Likewise I sacked Comodo Firewall, and that proved a good idea too. I now use a completely different package.

A call to BT tech support revealed another little gem: they were remotely viewing my screen. Just wanted to mention that.
