    Requesting virus scan - AVG

    Hello -

    Is there another way to Stop ‘requesting virus scan’ than by following these steps to reconfigure the Options for AVG (Free):
    1. Download AVG
    2. Run the AVG Free install file
    3. Choose the Add/Remove components option & follow the setup wizard until you reach the Component Selection area
    4. Uncheck Plugin for MS Office and finish the wizard.
    5. Restart your computer then test...

    This does work, but I had to do a System Restore, which means I'd have to download/install yet again.

    Thank you.

    Sometimes in the Add/Remove programs control panel you get both a Remove/Uninstall button and a Modify/Reconfigure button. You could check whether you have that option for AVG.

    Re: Requesting virus scan - AVG

    From here.....

    [i]"The plugin is installed when you can find the AVGOFF2K.DLL file in the AVG folder. If you like to deactivate this plugin, you don´t have to uninstall it. You can deactivate it running this command from the Start->Run menu:
    "regsvr32.exe /u avgoff2k.dll".

    You can activate the plugin again using this command: "regsvr32.exe avgoff2k.dll". "

    Go to this page and type 194 into the search box to verify.

    Hi, Jefferson -

    Thanks for that idea (I DO forget you can sometimes change programs in Add/Remove). No luck, though. I did uninstall and re-installed.

    Appreciate your time.

    Re: Requesting virus scan - AVG

    So glad to find this - it applies also to Excel, and it was taking an age for that program to open.

    However, it was not quite so simple to carry out the instructions, since for some reason my AVG is installed in the "D:Program FilesGrisoftAVG Free" folder. regsvr32.exe won't accept the long folder names, and I gave up trying to work out the 'old' names for these folders. What I did was to find AVGOFF2K.DLL (you can use Search to get there), then copy the file to the root directory (in my case D:/). Then all I needed to do was to Run "regsvr32.exe /u D:avgoff2k.dll".

    You can always delete the file after you've used it. Or leave it there in case you want to re-activate the plug in, with "regsvr32.exe D:avgoff2k.dll"

    Chris,

    Thanks for posting that. I'm sure you are not the only one who has a slightly different install than "normal" and your post will help others to understand and use this solution for the problem. <img src=/S/thumbup.gif border=0 alt=thumbup width=15 height=15>

    Morning, Doc -

    As I mentioned prior to your post, I did a reinstall of AVG. I hadn't seen your post until after I that was done. But, your post and Chris' certainly are helpful!

    I'm pretty sure that if you open a command window and navigate to the folder which contains the dll and then execute the regsvr32 command it will work. Did you have the path name in quotation marks when you executed it?
