Updating avg in safe mode
I hope you guys can understand my problem and know how to fix it, as I have already posted it on the AVG forums, but no response yet. Hi have you tried booting in Last Known Good Configuration Keep tapping F8 on start-up On the Advanced Boot Options screen, use the arrow keys to highlight Last Known Good Configuration (advanced), and then press Enter.
When I try to turn it on, it freezes on the "starting windows" screen.replies=1 You can use any Windows Vista/7/8 install DVD or recovery disk.Thanks for the reply Ruja, but I will be able to try this tomorrow, since I don't have access to a second computer to burn a dvd disk today.My virus software recently moved virus trovvjan horse 32 to the virus vault. Having runtime errors and a host of other problems. I miss the old ms dos days where you could at least work from c prompt. Next, select ‘Remove user settings’- don’t do this if you’re planning for a reinstall -, and ‘Remove Virus Vault contents’ and click ‘Next’ button 4.
AVG uninstaller makes the changes you’ve requested and prompts to restart your computer to complete the uninstallation, click on ‘Restart Now’ button.
You'll lose all your data, but get a fresh install of Windows (Which you'll need to update) Press and hold the 0 (zero) key and at the same time, tap the power button once to switch on your laptop. Another possibility is to create a bootable Antivirus disk, AVG provide one free, in the hope that it could remove the virus completely. I think I held down the power key simultaneously with zero key, but not 100% positive.
Personally I would shell out £45/$80 and upgrade to Win 8... I tried the "0" method, but I will give it another go.
Corrupted virus signatures have caused it not to update properly, or it wont start properly and it needs to be reinstalled.
If a new email client has been installed after AVG, you'll need to uninstall it and reinstall it so this email program is protected.
AVG says that after responding to the restart prompt, Windows gives a "STOP: c0000135" error and fails to boot. If you find yourself on the wrong end of this update, here's a fix, courtesy of the folks over at AVG (plus a video tutorial!
