Can You Help Me With Running My Avg Free Scan?

Postby Cass » Sun Oct 08, 2017 2:41 pm

I'm running AVG and it keeps coming up with warnings about a "Potentially Unwanted Program" on my computer.

When I click on "Move to Vault" it warns me that doing so could cause the computer to crash. The computer has over 2000 viruses according to Antivirus XP 2008, so I'm trying to fix it and get rid of Blue Screens of death, but I'd also like to avoid a crashed computer. What should I do?

all the alerts loaded by antivirus xp are fabricated. you can ignore those. however you can't ignore antivirus xp 2008 because it is a malware. delete it as soon as possible, here's removal guide http://www.2-viruses.com/remove-antiviru...

1. You can follow AVG's advice and choose the "move to vault" but before doing that, create a System Restore point first.

2. You can try using a different anti-virus software, because AVG detects 'false positives' meaning it can detect legit files as a virus, and thus crash your system.

Could be a problem with device drivers, hardware or software. This problem can be solved by uninstalling new softwares, updating device drivers and making minor configuration changes . From http://fixit.in/bluescreenofdeath.html . You can also run a free registry scan using utilities from http://re7.info
