Hello Marc Bennett,
this situation is related with not loaded AVG virus database during computer startup. Loading failure is mostly caused by two culprits:
A) not enough operating memory during computer start up - do you have at least 512 MB RAM?
B) virus database file corruption - please check used disk for errors (chkdsk /F command)
With culprit A) is related also registry record "INITSTARTFAILED", which is in some cases created after it and blocks next startup. Please check these registry keys for it (menu Start -> Run -> enter "regedit" and confirm):
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Avgldx86\Enum (x64 for 64bit OS)
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Avgmfx86\Enum (x64 for 64bit OS)
What is the situation after running AVG update? And applies A) or B) to described state?
Hi, I installed AVG Free 10.0.1120 on 10/4. Today, when I booted my machine, there was an alert symbol over AVG in the system tray.
I opened up the console, and it says residency shield is not active. I have confirmed that it actually is active in the Residency Shield settings.
I tried unchecking Residency Shield and rechecking it, but I continue to see this warning.
Everything was ok yesterday. Is this a bug or user error?
