Hello, I have been trying to find a way to get rid of my AVG antivirus popup screen when I turn on my computer.

1.  Turn on computer
2.  Go thru memory test.
3.  Windows 98 screen comes up
4.  Message on black screen comes up:
    this file is missing C:\PROGRA~1\GRISOFT\AVG6\avgcc32.exe\Startup.

I uninstalled my avg program, the teckie who fixed my computer put the program in and have put in Norton 2002 plus Zonelab so i didn't two antivirus program.  So I uninstalled with the Add/Remove Program but something else is still there.

So if you can help me, it would be greatly appreciated

Hi,

VXD files are Windows files and therefore loaded from the registry.
The safest thing to do is run the System Configuration Utility to find out what loads on startup.

Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Information
Tools > System Configuration Utility > Startup Tab

Look for both entries and check/uncheck to not load at startup.
