Browsing the Community pages I am discovering that many others are as frustrated as I am at the latest release of AVG.  With no warning, it was installed, and there are no instructions for how to use it.  It is not user friendly at all to schedule scans.  Even if I do a scan, it keeps saying Last Scan:  Never.  That does not give me any confidence.  I hope AVG fixes it, as I am a paying customer.  But I will definitely not renew my subscription when it comes time for that, the way the software is now.

I'm very much with you Madeline Foster. My patience and that of my wife is fast running out. This arrogant company and their "AVG Technologies" personnel are treating theit customers with total disdain.
The answer to your question is probably not true as I have two computers, which I rarely use other than for storage, which are both still running AVG Internet Security 2016 on my 2 year subscription. Their virus definitions are being updated correctly.
I suspect it's the Avast management trying to be clever. The update was obviously not ready for release.
Best of luck to all of us.....

I keep getting these AVG f$^&*( pop ups appearing on my desk top.  The latest in is one which says get your PC ready for the holidays.
Does any one have any advice on how to stop these things appearing?
I was in the middle of a time assessment when one popped up, and have mnore to do, so am not feeling very grateful about its intrusion into my private space and time at the min AVG.

AVG AV Free: Version 17.3.3011

Three items have been quarantined, I wish to recover them. From the quarantine menu, I attempt to select the three items, then proceed to restore them but they will not remained selected. If i attempt to use the "Select All Viruses" they will not remain selected either. 

Is the recover/extract features ones that I cannot use until I have purchased your application? Or can you provide a solution for extracting these files.

Same issue here - the first responder has missed the problem.
The quarentine menu appears - but selected items automtically unselect after a few seconds - too quick to perform the action (such as Report because I know it is a FP).

Hi Kishore,
Many thanks for your advice, which I followed. It turned out to be Trusteer Rapport which was causing the problem, so I was able to reset the appropriate setting and now everything works beautifully! I am puzzled however as to why the setting was changed, without my personal input. Many thanks indeed.

How the hell do I stop AVG from popping up adverts for it's own products?

I just bought 20 licences for a big client as this happens, and quite honestly I'm sending the whole lot back and buying something else which is ad-free as the client thinks I've installed a free version!

Any ideas?

I have just received my invoice for my annual AVG licence renewal and have paid. I have tried cutting and pasting my new licence number into the reactivate menu. Although it says it is a valid licence number it does not do anything with it. My current licence is due to expire on the 24th December is this why I cant reactivate yet?
many thank

Currently an AVG Ultimate user.

When opening AVG Internet Security a message at the bottom says a message similar to "Your PC is Cluttered and slowed down...etc...Resolve" -- pressing resolve shows items that can be fixed if I purchase AVG PC Tuneup. I already use AVG PC Tuneup so why is this message showing?

PC Tuneup indicates I have issues to resolve.  I really dislike deceptive practices like this!!

See this screen capture showing I have not "issues": https://drive.google.com/file/d/11ep_vxp-venlkNnWLIRzH85962Ug30sb/view?usp=sharing

Hello, Bruce.

I apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused. I would request you to disable campaign pop ups from AVG Internet Security settings to resolve this.

Open AVG Internet Security.
Click on Menu -> Settings -> General.
Expand PopUps, uncheck "Show ad pop ups for other AVG products".
Click OK to save the settings. 

Close AVG Internet Security and re open it and check if the pop up is still there.
