Unspecified error occured in the following AVG component(s); -avgwdsvc.exe

My PC recently performed two un-announced AVG 2015 Free edition updates, asking for a reboot after each.

Now, everytime I turn the PC on I get the following error: "Unspecified error occured in the following AVG component(s); -avgwdsvc.exe".

Looking at the archive forum, I found this: https://forums.avg.com/ww-en/avg-forums?sec=thread&act=show&id=206691

Unfortunately, all this suggests is turning off notifications - which is not really fixing the issue.

I'm also a little nervous about the two recent un-announced updates and am wondering if my PC has been compromised. I've carried out a few full AV checks and they come back all okay, as does Microsoft defender.

Any ideas as to what's causing the error?

Kind regards,
