At the same time as seeing an email announcing your new posting Willk, I had another deatiled one from AVG, which must be my fifth so far.

This email asks me to navigate to C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\avg9\Cfg*, rename idp.cfg to idp.cfg.old,, extract idp.cfg from a downloaded .zip file, reboot, induce the issue, and then run runner.avgdx, after which I must change the idp.cfg.old file back again.

I shall do this tomorrow and report any new advice from AVG, but meanwhile WinRescueXP will not function at all!

I have more tests to do for AVG over the weekend, but WinRescueXP will still not back up the registry even with Resident Shield and Identity Protection disabled. The error message was first of all that r28 could not be removed from C:\WINDOWS.
When I removed this manually, the error was then that r27 could not be deleted. Even deleting this folder and shredding it does not get rid of it. It still comes back and prevents my using WinRescueXP.

Again I was asked to rename idp.cfg to idp.cfg.old, but this had been done for an earlier test and couldn't be done again.

What a pain!

With those tests you were doing the attributes probably got changed in those temp directories in Windows to read only or hidden. If you reboot in safe mode you may be able to get rid of those r directories. If you do, just remember to disable the components in AVG before you run WinrescueXP.

Yhanks Willk for that advice! I will try that later this evening and post again.

Renewed thanks Willk! It worked, but rebooting into Safe Mode with Networking, deleting and shredding r27, then rebooting into Normal Mose, shutting down broadband, Resident Shield and Identity Protection, and then running WinRescueXP to back up the registry is a cumbersome process.

I wonder if anyone from AVG reads this borad or listens to customers' complaints.

I think it was that testing from AVG that screwed up the attributes. Just be careful everyday to disable avg components and you should be ok. You do not have to stay off-line with your router. Let me know how you make out or if those morons come up with a fix.

Thanks again Willk! I will certainly post if and when a fix is issued. I have now completed, as far as possible, six emails worth of tests for AVG but no solution has been issued yet as far as I know.

No reply as yet from AVG to all of the information from me which they must have had, nor any sign of a program update!

I have given up on AVG. I have their free version running on a 4 year old Lap Top with XP. It only has 1GIG of memory. AVG 9.0 has brought it to its knees. After I put on 9.0 over 8.5 Winrecue XP will not run. You know the drill. I discovered an Anti Virus called AVIRA.  PCWORLD gave it a 92% superior review. It does not slow the machine down and now WinrescueXP runs just fine. They offer a paid version suite with a firewall thats very reasonable. Check it out at find.pcworld.com/63548. This is better then not using the Winrecue and Regvac software.

Thanks Willk! I shall certainly bear you helpful suggestion in mind if no solution from AVG by way of an updated program. I sent them an emailed remider today that I am still awaiting their reply, so will give them a day or two more to reply.

This afternoon (Thursday November 19) version 9.0.709 of AVG Internet Security has been released, and, for the first time I could use WinRescueXP to back up the registry apparently successfully.

Two cheers to AVG as it has been such a long wait!

Glad to hear it. It was nice interfacing with you. Do you notice that this 9.0.709 seems to slow you down overall? My Winrescue worked also but my overall system seems slower.

Yes my PC seems slower too, but I thought this might be due to browsing mainly in the late evening.

Thanks for all of your helpful postings Willk! At least I knew that I was not alone in my frustration!
