Help Needed

I tried AVG Internet Security 2011 & uninstalled it. But now it shows AVG Firewall is turned off. There are no AVG remnants. I tried AVG Cleaner Tool, Tried installing/uninstalling with Comodo Program Manager, Revo Uninstaller, but nothing solved the prob. I tried Regedit & whatever AVG related I found deleted it but the prob is still there. Tried various system restore point with normal & safe mode but after restart it showed cannot be restored.

If I enable windows firewall security center doesn’t shows there are 2 firewalls. It shows windows firewall is on. But if I disable windows firewall then it shows AVG firewall is turned off.

Any solution plzz??

Thanxx

Tried http://forums.avg.com and/or http://www.avgforums.com/ (unofficial forums)?

Yes no solution found. I tried installing & uninstalling AVG Internet Security Beta 2012 too but the prob remains. I have posted in the AVG Beta forum too but no reply yet.

In regedit I found one entry

AVG Packet Filter Notify 1.0 Type Library

Can I safely Delete this entry? May be this will solve the prob. Is it AVG related entry?

Perhaps these questions are better suited for the AVG forum? You would have a much better chance of finding someone who knows a lot about AVG over there.

Yes I have posted in the AVG forum & waiting for reply.

Hi Naren,
Try rebuilding your WMI repository.

1: In Services, Stop Windows management instrumentation service (WMI).
2: In the system32\wbem\Repository folder, delete all the files.
3: Reboot and the repository will rebuild.

Alternative rebuild method.
Run command prompt as admin (right click)

1: net stop winmgmt

2: cd %windir%\system32\wbem

3: ren repository repository.old

4: net start winmgmt

Note: With this method hit enter after each command.

Reboot and the repository will rebuild.

Kind regards.

Right Click on Command Prompt didn’t showed admin. It showed 2 options, my account which is also admin & username & password field to choose other account. So I just opened Command Prompt & typed the commands you mentioned. Hope its right?

This solved the prob. Thanxx a lot. This was so easy. Yesterday I did so many things to solved this prob & wasted the full day.

There are 2 folders now. Repository & repository.old. Should I delete the .old one?

Another AVG prob. When I open additional tab in internet explorer AVG secure search page opens up. It only opens in the additional tab & not in the main tab.

That option depends on the OS or settings whether it is available or not so no problem there.

There are 2 folders now. Repository & repository.old. Should I delete the .old one?
Yes go ahead and delete the .old repository, creating it was only a precautionary in case a new one did not create for some reason.
Another AVG prob. When I open additional tab in internet explorer AVG secure search page opens up. It only opens in the additional tab & not in the main tab.
Depending on your IE version, open IE: Go to Tools, Internet options, General, Tabs and set your Tabs behaviour to your preferences see Screenshot.

Kind regards.
