My new version of AVG is constantly giving me notices to restart so it can continue to finish its update process. This happens about 3-4 times a day, sometimes more. I've just updated to the new 2011 version of AVG. Why does this continue to happen? It is the "AVG needs to restart in ---- Minutes to continue the updating process." pop up window. Any ideas to help stop this?
I had this error with the last automatic update of AVG Free 2011 so ran uninstall, and reinstalled using the "Custom Install" option.
I turned off the install for "Identity Protection" after verifying it's not included with AVG Free 2011. (I had problems with this function reporting as an error after last install.) I also turned off "MS Outlook " protection as I do not use this app.
Since doing the above, I rebooted, turned on ignore status for "Identity Protection", updated to the latest versions of virus definitions, etc... So far I have not had any further "Restart Computer" notices thank goodness, annoying as hell).
I did notice a couple of error messages towards the end of the install regarding ZoneAlarm, but so far this has not interfered with the installation .
I'm running Windows XP Media Center (Professional) with SP3.
Hope this is of some help to others experiencing this problem.
