AVG Users Take Note: Error Removes Windows System Files

Published

on

If you are an AVG user (7.5 or 8.0) you need to do an update right away. Yesterday an update that was released recognized a Windows XP system file (user.dll) as a virus and recommended deleting the file. If the file did get deleted you would not be able to boot up and have to do a restore. AVG has corrected the issue leading to the false positive and users should download the latest update.

    Yeah, thats just great because I got three calls from customers yesterday telling me that they can’t boot their computers because of “missing files”. My only day off this week to study for exams and I have three housecalls to make to try to do system restores, data recovery…etc. All three had my “highly recomended” AVG on them. UGH!
