AVG 8 is turned off – eeek!

After upgrading from AVG free to AVG SBS Edition, I was having a little recurring problem with Vista’s security center telling me that AVG was turned off. On closer inspection (and rather worryingly) it was correct – the resident shield was not operational. A dig into the forums found this:

Resident Shield and/or Web Shield is not active

Which points to a handy little file to download and run that will reset all the permissions on your AVG related files, folders and registry entries. After a quick reboot you should be good to go.

Worked for me on Vista Ultimate with AVG SBS Edition 8.0.

Thank you.
