A lot of people have complained that their hardware isn't detected, in particular wireless cards.

Why isn't AVG using an established, functional yet still lightweight distro like Puppy Linux or Lubuntu? You get support for a lot of hardware, and a proven, tested distribution, with a graphical interface too.

For your info re the present AVG Team forum involvement.. Just to keep you updated.. 'Information' forum area.. Have a look @ Christmas Holidays 2012 i.e. The AVG Team will answer @ the earliest after 2nd Jan 2013. When the AVG Team do return they will probably start working thro' the inevitable postings backlog, in date order, commencing with those @ 20th Dec 2012.

You are right. But..AVG Rescue System is designed as one-task-system: antivirus scanner (plus base utilities and user interface).
If you need other live distro with AVG, no problem - install AVG4Linux to live Linux distro and use it.
