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.
Not yet, because I should not have to EVERY damn time.
Virus Definitions are up to date: Release date: October 1, 2019 9:51 AM (ver. 191001-4)
Your application is up to date: Release date: September 19, 2019 1:58 AM (ver. 19.8.3108 - build 19.8.4793.539)
AsI said earlier, just 5 or so days ago, I also had to restart the computer according to AVG. That is why I want to NOT have to do this every time with AVG Internet Security.
Also, this would be a hell of a lot easier to communicate were I able to copy/paste from the AVG Internet Security -> Menu -> Settings -> General -> Update screen.
This , and all other AVG programs are getting more and more difficult to use as you remove useful functions (dupe file finder), make improvements (restart computer EVERY time), etc.
I have used AVG for years but, you are sorely trying my patience. If I have to restart my computer after this time, I will likely remove all AVG products and go with a more responsive (to the customer) vendor.
And NO, you may NOT take control of my computer to fix this.
If I remove it, it is gone for good. This program is way toohigh in my time for doing maintenance on it.
You (AVG) whould have been doing this kind of stuff BEFORE you send out an update that screws everything up.
As I said earlier, I will, sometime today, when I get a chance, reboot my computer, AGAIN, to satisfy AVG but this is your (AVG) last chance, one more reboot requirement and you are gone. I do not have the time nor inclination to debug your code (I had enough of that before I retired, then it was fun, now it is a pain in the @$$).
OK, I finally got the time (and inclination) to restart my computer as AVG Demanded, AGAIN. The restart happened yesterday 10/1, in the afternoon.

So far, no DEMAND to restart computer.
I will be checking ths daily and pot when the damned DEMAND reappears (likely before the week is out)
I reinstalled AVG and that seemed to have resolved the "Restart" prompts so far.
You can stop with the "We're sorry" stuff. It no longer flies.
My latest problem with AVG PCTuneup is that, on the front page it says that "Automatic Maintenance is ON" BUT on the "Menu -> Settungs -> Automatic Maintenance" setting the switch is "RED" (i.e. OFF) and "Choose what to delete during Automatic Maintenance" has the "busy" tinig running for the past 8 hours.
Oh, and Automatic Maintenance is NOT (Automatic)
Uninstall/Reinstall - that is the answer to everyting. Maybe if the program were morethoroughly tested BEFOREHAND you paying customers would not have to do that for every problem.
Before I do so, sometime next week,
