AVG 2011 Dump Files

Does anyone know how to permanently stop AVG 2011 Free producing a lot of dump files in C:\ProgramData\AVG2011\Dumps. I found that I have accumulated more than 8GB. I have followed a thread somewhere, and it seems that AVG has not found a permanent solution yet. Someone might know how to do it. What I am doing now is to delete these DMP files regularly.

Re: AVG 2011 Dump files

Hello oobist9,

it is not possible to disable the dump generating in AVG 2011. Dumps are created due to crashed AVG process due to unknown condition or conflict with other application. Please make sure you are running latest AVG 2011 program version (10.0.1191) and you have checked used hard drive for errors. We need some of the generated dump files for closer analysis by our developers.

Could you please provide us with several dump files in an archive (zip file) through favourite online storage? (, etc.)

Please post link to uploaded file(s) to your next CNET reply or open my CNET profile and send it in the personal message.

Thank you

AVG Dump Files


My hard drive is perpectly clean of errors, as I check it very often. If there are conflicts with other applications or resources they do not show in any of the Windows 7 diagnostic tools, e.g. Device Manager. If it is of any help, I am running a 64-bit Windows 7 Professional, and AVG 2011 10.0.1191 version.

Below are copies of the most recent dmp files in C:\ProgramData\AVG2011\Dumps

Thanks for the prompt response.

Re: AVG Dump Files

Hello oobist9,

analysis of provided dump has showed corrupted memory modules:

PROCESS_NAME: avgwdsvc.exe
ERROR_CODE: (NTSTATUS) 0xc000001d - {EXCEPTION} Illegal Instruction An attempt was made to execute an illegal instruction.

Could you please check used memory modules for any errors?

Then please reinstall/repair AVG installation (for sure) and inform us about actual situation.

Thank you
