Avg 8 i recently installed avg free 8 to replace my avgfree7.5, when i rebooted my computer it failed to boot properly. it has crashed every time i try to boot. it gets to the login screen, then when i try to login, it ither freezes and i have to poweroff. it has also done a memory dump. when it did this it mentioned win32k.sys on the screen. the system is win xp sp3(rc2/3) amd duron oc'ed to 1.39ghz and was running perfectly stable and cool up until today. i am suspecting i might have to do a repair install, but any thoughts?

    it did not start in safe mode the first time, but when i stepped down the overclocking, it booted fine(but slowly =] )it did complain about disk space requirements, so i am moving around my partitions and resizing them to fit in better. thanks for the advice. funny thing though, it had been running cold(27c) and now it is running hot(33c)? strange that at a higher overclock it is colder.... i don't know.

Try starting up the computer in safe mode, by pressing F8 at a certain point on startup.
If it starts in safe mode do system restore.
If you cannot even start in safe mode you will probably need to reinstall windows, you can also try a system recovery, but this does not always work.
If you have a boot disk like ultimate boot cd (you can download some from torrent) you can start system restore, or repair system using the boot disk.
Easiest way to proceed is probably reinstalling system.

    Well overclocking may have got nothing to do with corrupted system (eg/. a corrupted boot.ini file) caused by AVG setup, if your computer does not start because of overclocking, then you get only black screen, no booting, nothing.
    System restarting fine had been incidental for something else you did, unless the CPU is overheating, in which case you should replace the fan or add an additional one.
    Cpu temperature may vary depending on the load of work on cpu. If your cpu is to hot then you may have a problem with the fan.
    When cpu overheats it shut down the computer immediately, doesn't freezes or restart.
    I also wonder why you gave out a negative rating, I think you have had enough help for a free question.

Restarts computer in loop at 5-8 minutes of boot


Please try install XP SP3 in safe mode. Then check whether you have the latest Graphics Card Driver. It seems like some driver issue as it reboots only in Normal mode. Since safe mode runs on minimalset of hardware drivers.
Secondly, there may be a corrupt file that caused reboot. Spend a night and schedule bad sector check - Right click on system drive, Tools tab, Error Checking -> Check Now, tick both boxes then Start. It will schedule scan on next reboot. Then reboot to confirm it starts checking HD.

Uninstall of software


Sounds like you did not do things in the correct order or you did not reboot between the AVG uninstall and the Kapersky install, so that it looked like AVG was still loaded.

Since Kapersky is not installed, the best way to proceed is to start from a fresh reboot, download and re-install the AVG free edition to get the registry entries corrected. Don't bother with updates as it is coming back out again. Reboot and uninstall AVG. Reboot again and verify AVG is gone before attempting to install the Kapersky.

AVG free can be downloaded from free.grisoft.com assuming you mean the 8.0 version, not 7.5, otherwise try downloading from www.filehippo.com and select the older version.
