Hello Lil-Mary,

For help on your situation please try use AVG remover (32/64).

If it doesn't help please delete folder "c:\program files\avg secure search\" and disable startup of vProt and ROC_roc_dec12 using ccleaner.

Thank you

Windows 7 Home Edition
AVG version Free Edition 2012 2021.0.1913
db version 2109/4778
no other anti virus software installed

I am also having this problem at start up. I ran the repair option on the installer, and it removed the error.
Now, after a couple of weeks, the error has returned.

I'll try another repair, and then a completely clean install. I will report back here if the problem persists.

Thank you.

VProtect working again apparently..

I downloaded the latest version of the free AVG 2012 and ran it in 'repair' mode. (There are 3 options: install, repair, remove.) After my computer restarted, I opened up my browser and now do not have the VProtect stopped working error message anymore.

It was easy.

Worked for a few days and back to same problem !!!

I reinstalled free AVG 2012 and ran it in the repair mode also. I was a happy camper.....but after a few days....the same Vprotect error started appearing again. Now What ??

I reinstalled free AVG 2012

As per AVG Team Manager Pokornyz's post #189179 did you use the AVG Remover?. If you're not sure about 32 or 64 bit on your system have a look @ this link http://forums.avg.com/ww-en/avg-free-forum?sec=thread&act=show&id=140471#post_140471.

Vprotect application not working anymore..

I think I have the same kind of problem. At Winsows startup I get the message "VProtect Application is not working anymore". I tried the repair installation (AVG 2012) and when that did not help I removed AVG 2012 with the avg remove program and when the problem persisted after reinstalling, I also removed AVG with Revo uninstaller, but that also did not help. When uninstalling AVG 2012, I get the message that the toolbaruninstaller is not working. I will upload my logfile here. I hope you'can help me solving this problem. Is avg not protecting my computer while having this problem?
Thank you, Angela

Hello ansnuf and sunshine34461,

Please follow all steps described in full reinstallation instructions.

When looking for and deleting listed folders, also remove this folder:
C:\Program Files\AVG Secure Search or C:\Program files(x86)\AVG Secure Search (for 64bit OS)

Then proceed with reinstallation using latest installation package - build 1913.

Thank you

Changing ownership solved the problem???..

Deleting and reinstalling did not solve the problem, but after changing ownership of the maps, the problem seems to be solved. I am not sure if changing the ownership solved the problem, because I have tried that before without succes, but I thought I should report this here. Hopefully the problem will not occur again.
Thank you for your help, Angela

I have experienced similar problems with AVG 2012 free edition.

Mid Jan onwards todate - receiving the following message on start up - VProtect Application has stopped working.
I did not do anything about it for a couple of weeks - hoped AVG would automatically sort out the problem with its automatic updates, but the problem has persisted.

I followed instructions found on this forum:

Went into Install/uninstall and clicked on AVG - clicked on repair - did not make any difference
I then uninstalled AVG using the standard uninstall program and reinstalled - did not make any difference
When I reinstalled I got a toolbarinstaller error message as well as Vprotect error message!
I uninstalled AVG again using AVG remover - did not make any difference.
When I reinstalled this time I opted not to have AVG as the main/default search engine - this seems to have resolved the error message re the toolbar installer but did not resolve the error message re Vprotect.
I am hoping AVG will resolve this matter via automatic updates.
I would like to be assured by AVG that there software is protecting my pc despite these problems.
I am scanning my computer everyday as a precaution
