Hello Jacques,
Since you already have AVG Internet Security - Unlimited valid till 2019.9.2 so you can receive a refund for AVG Internet Security (which has been renewed on 2018.5.4). Let me know if you want me to merge AVG Internet Security and AVG Internet Security - Unlimited or want to receive a refund for AVG Internet Security.
Best regards,

My 2 year subscription for virus protection expires in November (22nd) 2017.  I no longer wish to renew this.  I am unable to access this thru My Account in order to cancel, as it erroneously does not recognize my subscription and I am unable to create a new account using my current email address.  Please CANCEL  my subscription and automatic extension/renewal for which I do nor wish to be billed

Hello Frank,

I understand the inconvenience.
I have successfully cancelled the auto renewal progress for your AVG Internet Security (1 computer) license.
I see that the auto renewal progress is active for your AVG PC TuneUp (1 computer) license too.
Do you wish to cancel it?

Why is it that EVERY TIME I go to AVG Internet Security I have this big RED message about "PC RESTART NEEDED"?

I go there about once a week and it seems as though this always always presented.

Today, the ONLY thing that was up dated was virus definitions.

This is really annoying that I always have to restart.

John, reinstallation always resets your software configuration by fixing or replacing program files which may be out of date, corrupted, or missing. This is why we suggested to re-install the product. 
1. Yes, the settings will not revert back if we reinstall the product. 
2. Unfortunately, there isn't any option to recover the settings configured in AVG TuneUp program.
3 & 4. The revamped version of AVG TuneUp 19.1, you can follow the steps as my colleague (Dinesh) stated earlier to install the product. 
You can find an option to edit your post nearby your reply. 
Thank you. If we can be of more help, please never hesitate to let us know.

I have purchased a year subscription to AVE Tune Up today. Apparently it is activated but when I try to fix the performance issues I'm asked to buy a subscription again. What am I doing wrong?

Hello, Eric

I understand but let us make sure that the product installed in your PC is activated.
Use the below article to check if the AVG TuneUp is activated or not :
Keep us posted.

When I open up my I/Net Security it comes up with
This is very embarrassing
Your protection is running, but the UI is having a really bad day
["undefined", "module", "main layout". "view", "default"]
What is going on?
I tried ringing the Support Number of 1800 429 319 but it is SHUTDOWN due to Coronavirus situation.

Having established that when the AVG disk driver avgsrdisk.sys is installed, Windows 7 WEI fails consistently, I have found a much worse problem :-
If avgsrdisk.sys is removed, renamed or corrupted, then Windows will not boot at all, not even in safe mode!
You can't boot at all using any of the safe mode options, forcing a Windows re-install.
This is a very important issue for an anti-virus program - If something gets onto your system somehow and just renames avgsrdisk.sys, then your system becomes un-bootable.
The only way round this without a complete Windows re-install is to get into Dos mode via the Windows recovery disk (If you have one) and re-instate avgsrdisk.sys from a backup.
This is a serious security problem.

They are not going to fix this.
This was first reported over 6 months ago and they say they can't even reproduce the problem, despite many people reporting the same problem on various operating systems.
All they need to do is delete or rename avgsrdisk.sys and EVERY version of Windows will fail to load, even into safe mode.
If anyone is doing a complete re-install of Windows for any reason, then just delete or rename avgsrdisk.sys and see how far a reboot gets.
Report the failures to this thread and maybe they will get their engineers to look at it properly.

I am afraid that the ONLY fix for this is to do a complete re-install of Windows.
