    After the first time you install AVG on RC1, it will work fine, but as you
    reboot, antivirus driver or similar fails to start.
    So I uninstalled AVG but it's remained on the security center. Why is it
    remained in the security center???? How remove it???? Now I've 2 antivirus
    active in security center but AVG is not really

  2. It would load fine here a couple of times, but stopping doing
    so eventrually. I un- then reinstalled and it worked again. For
    some other eason I had to reinstall pre-RC1 and AVG wouldn't
    load after some reboots.

    When started manually from the Start Menu it fired up fine and
    reportet to be active, also the tray-icon then appeared again.
    Since the icon is there, AVG says it's active and the update of
    the program then works flawlessly, I assume that manually star-
    ting the program may be a workaround. I don't know of any
    other AV-software that works with 5536 so I stick with it.

  3. AVG worked fine for me on build 5536 and continues to on Build 5600.
    By chance did you upgrade without uninstalling AVG?
    Are you using the latest build released recently?

    I am running build 5536 - have the latest AVG Free edition
    (avg71free_405a791)
    upon booting I get the following message:

    "Could not initialize AVG Anti-Virus Kernal interface. Application cannot
    run"

    an "OK" buttons appears in the message box.

    I manually start the program and all seems well. I did a clean install of
    5536

    I have no problems with AVG Free Edition and 5536. It runs fine even after re-booting.

    Yup. I got that too. Launch it from desktop icon, open Control Panel, and
    it's working.

    Eventually it stoppeed giving the error.

    I've installed the latest build 5600 as usual i.e. installed on a clean hard
    disk (fresh installation).
    yes, of course, I've downloaded the AVG from this page
    http://free.grisoft.com/doc/5390/lng/us/tpl/v5
    about 2 days ago.

    I had the same problem as BillD, including being left with 2 antivirus apps
    listed, even after I had uninstalled AVG. Starting the program manually each
    time didn't seem like a good work around and I now have Trend Micro PCillian
    installed. However, it expires in Oct and has no free version. I'm hoping
    they will get AVG working again by then. It worked fine for me in the Beta
    2 version of Vista.

    All you have to do is control panel Windows Firewal ad program and just
    check that AVG has access

    I'll give that a try. I assumed it was Vista itself that was preventing the
    loading, as I didn't see reference to the firewall. Thanks!
