System Restore and AVG Interent Security Suite 9

Hello:

I'm considering switching to AVG Internet Security 9.0

My current security suite-Zone Alarm Security- led to quirky and unforeseen problem with system restore. When I upgraded to the most recent version, system restore failed in Normal Mode, and only worked in Safe Mode. I downgraded back to the much earlier outdated, version, and now system restore only works in Normal Mode. If I try to run that in Safe mode , I get stuck in Safe Mode. The PC doesn't reboot normally from such an attempt at system restore.

Question:

Have any issues with System Restore been noted with AVG Internet Security?

Does system restore work in both Normal Mode and in Safe Mode with AVG? This is as it should be..

Thanks in advance:

RE: System Restore and AVG Interent Security Suite 9

Hi,

please be informed that the system restore could be damaged by an infection (or a remnant of a removed infection). You could contact the Microsoft technical support to rectify the System Restore issue.

On the other hand, there are no issues reported with non-functional System Restore caused by AVG 9.0 so far. Using the System Restore while AVG is installed could damage AVG installation in some cases, but the System Restore feature itself is not affected.

Thanks.

"Using the System Restore while AVG is installed could damage AVG installation in some cases, but the System Restore feature itself is not affected"

===========================

Do you mean while the AVG is being installed, i.e. during the installation process? Or while AVG is already installed?

Hi,

AVG could be damaged while is already installed as the system restore returns back some older files (or remove some registry entries). This could cause some unknown behavior of AVG application.

One known behavior is described in this thread at AVG Free Forum - http://forums.avg.com/cz-en/avg-free-forum?sec=thread&act=show&id=31575 - 11th situation.

Thank you

I've upgraded to AVG Antivirus 9.0 beginning October 2009 and I've had issues with it ever since. Now, I've removed it and I got my peace of mind back although, not my money. DON'T BUY!!!
