4 Responses to Windows 7 stuck on logo screen – caused by AVG antivirus

  1. We’ve been seeing this issue with AVG – it’s some kind of issue with an update they’ve issued and we’ve got a case open as AVG partners – it has been affecting some (but not all) of our customers with AVG.

    We blogged briefly about it here:

    We’ve had similar issues with other AV mind you in the past – but this issue affecting Windows 7 machines with AVG is the worst.

      Thanks for the info. This one had me scratching my head for a while, I’ve used various antivirus products on quite a large scale (thousands of PCs and servers) and never seen one cause this.

      In this particular installation I had three PCs all running Windows 7 and all running the same version of AVG, yet only one went pop.

      If you do hear anything back from AVG I’d be interested to know what they say.
