I have to disable AVG before upgrading to Win 7.

Cannot see how this is done.

Help anyone?

Many thanks.

AVG on their site have a tool for the complete removal of AVG.
Downloading later and reinstalling takes very little time.

many thanks for the info. I thought I would try an upgrade first as I recently re-installed vista on my 64bit machine, and it is impossible to get it any cleaner than it is, or more up to date. Hence worth a try.

If it bellies-up on the up-grade then a clean install would have to be done.

I understand several members have had to do this.

Would advise that you do a fresh install of Win7 and not do an upgrade

Make sure that you have ALL the XP or Vista drivers for your computer before you even think about install Win7

I asked the same question recently and had this reply from Sea Urchin: For AVG - open user interface and double-click Resident Shield - uncheck box beside Resident Shield Active and click Save Changes.
It seems to work
