How can I remove AVG kernel interface?

Posted: 06-10-2008, 02:19 AM
HP Desktop (1 year old) Vista Home Premium 32 bit SP1. Had AVG 7.5 for
about six months (with email scan disabled). AVG offerred Version 8 and I
allowed it to download and install. Big mistake!! Gave me nothing but
trouble. When I tried to uninstall it, I realized it wasn't listed in
Install/Uninstall. But I saw that AVG had an Uninstall as part of their
program....so I used it. (My second mistake!)

Now, whenever I start up.....a window appears: "AVG Anti-Virus System.
Could not initialize AVG Anti-Virus kernel interface." How can I get rid of
this window? It doesn't cause trouble...but I hate seeing it everytime I
start the computer. As you can guess...I'm not a Guru...just a user..so
please try to keep it simple...if possible. Thanks.....bobg

I'm not an AVG user, but what I'd try is to bring up Windows Defender
click Tools > Software Explorer > Category: Startup Programs > look fo
Grisoft applications and highlight any found > click Disable.

If you have WinPatrol installed, that could also be worth trying t
find those hidden startups

Hi Dave, Followed your instructions and "Grisoft" is listed but "Not yet
classified." It shows in the box but the Disable is only a shadow copy and
doesn't affect it. Thanks for your suggestion. Guess I'll live with it for
awhile. It doesn't really interupt that much. Just another item to click
on startup. bobg

Hi again. Tried your suggestion to use WinPatrol. Never heard of it. It
worked like a charm.
Many thanks. Now won't have to cuss everytime I startup. Have a nice day.
