AVG 2011 infinite loop bug on 64-bit Windows

AVG Anti-virusIf anyone was affected by AVG’s bad update yesterday where the system gets stuck in an infinite loop, ignore AVG’s needlessly complicated fix. Just boot into repair with a command prompt and rename C:\Program Files\AVG\AVG10\avgrs*.exe and C:\Program Files\AVG\AVG10\avgchsv*.exe. To get to the command prompt, hit F8 as Windows begins to boot and choose Startup Repair -> Command prompt. These files will disable AVG’s resident shield and allow Windows to boot. Afterwards, boot into Windows and repair the installation of AVG. Problem solved.

Meet the new Windows 7, Mac and Linux tablet: The iPad.

Magical. Revolutionary. Incredible. Insanely great.

Or so Apple’s marketing tells us.

However, no one can deny that the iPad is a powerful, transformational device. The iPad has seen the fastest adoption rate in electronics product history with 4.5 million units per quarter.
