1. It all started after installing AVG 7.00 Free in my BASIS PC@saturn on the 6h August 2008
2. The symptoms were:
a) No EXE runs except explorer, notepad, windows management files, command window
b) Does not boot in safe mode, rather restarts
c) When clicks on an EXE it gives the message "Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file. You May not
have the appropriate permission"
d) Network card is dis-connected
e) Windows firewall is on and never goes off
f) Some viruses are active
a) I first started to delete the virus files
b) Visited forum after forums but could not find match for my problem
c) I Fixed the firewall by restoring default from advanced tab. Try this
d) The biggest point is to delete all the avg .exe files. One .dll was not removing. I had to go to registry and
remove all its references and problem was solved. All the EXE files are running now normally.
I am now in search of the reason that AVG blocks an EXE.
