    Exclamation AVG bad update bricks Win7 64-bit


    AVG bad update bricks Win7 64-bit
    Last Updated: 2010-12-03 04:24:55 UTC - "... reports on AVG updates breaking things on Windows 7 64 bit... The problem lies with the mandatory update. The AVG site has some info on how to deal with the issue here
    * Basically get the machine started somehow (use AVG rescue Disk or any Linux Live CD). In the windows/system32/drivers directory rename everything starting with avg. Reboot and your system will be back (minus the AV). I guess it will then be a matter of waiting for it to be fixed, reinstall or change to something else."
