Avgdisdkx and Avgidsdriver fail to load

Win Vista.Desk Top:
Boot-Start System Fail to Load. AVGDISKX and AVGIDSDIVER. Event ID: 7026.

Is this a part of Avg Antivirus Program? Freezes on start up, if I try and restart to soon it will not start at all, sometimes the desktop makes a beeping noise. I can wait a while and boot up in safe mode. Can I uncheck in the start up manager services? If its a part of Avg Antivirus Program will it still protect with service unchecked?

Re: programs

If you search in Windows Explorer (or in the command prompt) for avgdiskx.exe and avgidsdriver.exe, in what folder do you find them? if it's the regular AVG-folder, they are part of the antivirus program. If they are in the Windows folder, look at the details tab in their right click>properties to see what programs it are and who made them.

http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/13469.event-id-7026-the-following-boot-start-or-system-start-driver-s-failed-to-load.aspx shows this error means the files aren't where they are expected. Did you check that? Maybe reinstall AVG?

I checked it in the Program Files. Should I uninstall use CCleaner then reinstall? Should the Avg. go to the Program file or should I browse for another location?

Thanks for your help.

My advice would be to use AVG's own uninstall tool.

I will give it a try. I download this from CNet Free Version. I have had problems for a long while with this, just did not know how to trouble shoot in Safe Mode and found where the errors were located and found the list. I will give your trouble shoot a go. Thanks I will let you know if this was the problem or have another. I will know more tomorrow when I shut the computer down for the night and try and start up again. It's fine until I start up or even restart.

Thanks so much for your help, hope this works Happy

Just now getting the Vista started, it frozen in SafeMode. I started it by the last good config. I check the event error it said DCOM error 1084.

I found a Free Download that's suppose to Fix the problem. Thought before I use it maybe someone can advice me if it is to use OK. At this point I guess nothing else can happen any worst Happy

What would you advise?

- Collapse -
No

Do as Bob suggested , Use The AVG Removal Tool.

Those pc fixit things will cause more problems , Plus you don't know all of the other garbage they bundle in the download

Re: advise

I would advise uninstalling AVG. I can't read in this thread you did that already.
And I certainly wouldn't advise running a registry cleaner like you link to.

Yes I did download the uninstall tool and reinstalled free AVG version, hit ninite.com, but I still had a problem with it starting up this morning. It loaded everything and a minute later froze and the tower had a beeping noise. Next try going into safe mode it froze before the help page was loaded. The next reboot I used last good config., it was good to go. I checked the Event page. Showed twice the same problem Error DCOM "1084"

...."Attemting to Start the Service W-Search with arguments run the server" (7D096C5F-Ac08-4FlF-BEB7-0SC22C517CE39)

I have not check to see what W-Search is?

No sure what you mean. I use Avg, CCleaner, spybot, malwarebytes.
I have download all from cnet net. What would be a good free virus scanner.

I think you meant Download.com

Avgdisdkx and Avgidsdriver fail to load

Well I thought it was from CNet. I always go there and it shows a list of things to download. I guess I knew the download was coming from somewhere else, but thought it was a partnership or something and it was safe.
http://download.cnet.com/windows/

I down see any downloads on Ninite,

Thanks for you help again Happy Very much appreciated

This is a screenshot of Free AVG at Ninite.

After that click the big button to download the installer for the apps you wanted.

The download.com site you linked to has "extras" that most of us do not want.

Re: W-search

W-search seems to be a browser high-jacker. Maybe it's removed, so its associated service can't be started. Just set it to manual or disabled and the error might disappear.

Doing a clean install of the OS certainly helps against most kinds of malware. And sometimes it's the only way to recover from the damage done.

I had reinstalled Vista sort by accident, I had never done that before, earlier it had been asking to insert disk so many times when it start up, that I thought I may just insert the restore disk to have it do some repairs, click the wrong thing and the computer was like it was with I bought it, gee glad I had always back up on a detachable disk drive But with that I was still had the same problem as to why I got on the forum.

I did the Clean Boot and this morning it came up without any problems. So lets see how long this last Happy I really appreciate your help and support, Bob has been good to help in the past...So glad for you guys. Just when I'm learning my away around in Vista, had to get Win 10 just in case Vista fails me for real.
