Hi everyone!

I just installed AVG 2012 and I *know* I checked the tick to enable the AVG gadget that shows up on the desktop. For some reason, it didn't install (but AVG components did) the gadget. Is there some way I can resurrect it without uninstall/reinstall the program?

Many thanks in advance

Hello nicomen,

Unfortunately it is not possible to simply add the gadget to already installed AVG.
You could follow all steps in full reinstallation instructions.

If you are sure that gadget is selected to be installed and it is still missing, provide us with installation log files and with MSinfo output.

Thank you

I had the same problem. Try right clicking the empty desktop(no web page) and select gadgets, and you will probably find it. If not, go to the Control Panel and click -Uninstall/Change on the AVG Program. There you can select "Change and add the missing Icons or do a "Repair"to recover the Gadget :innocent: :innocent:
