New AVG Internet Security 2011 update cause Windows 7 to crash

I just came from my night shift and found AVG was updated and needed for a computer reboot. To my amaze, the New AVG Internet Security 2011 update causes Windows 7 to crash. Even in Safe Mode, it wont boot at all. As of now, AVG haven't release a quick fix yet. Or in worst case scenario, reinstall Windows.



How to fix your computer after AVG Internet Security 2011 update windows crash

1. download and burn AVG Rescue CD

2. Boot thru AVG rescue CD. Go to Utilities > File Manager then navigate to /mnt/sda(x) where x depends on the partition of your computer.

3. Rename the following files

\Program Files(x86)\AVG\AVG10\avgrs*.exe     >>  avgrs*.exe.bak
\Program Files(x86)\AVG\AVG10\avgchsv*.exe >> avgchsv*.exe.bak

4. Press ctrl+alt+del to reboot your computer. Make sure that you remove your AVG Rescue CD.

5. Once your computer successfully booted. Download the latest AVG Internet Security 2011 Installer

6. Run the installer and click Repair. After the repair, reboot your computer

(or you skip step 5  and 6. Uninstall AVG and install other free Antivirus software)

You can also use Linux-based live CDs as an alternative to AVG Rescue CD

As of now, the issue is being tracked on the following sites:

Trendmico doesnt want you to buy other Antivirus software

I'm using Trendmicro Internet Security Pro for almost one year and my license will expire Jan 2011. Since it will be SITEX this coming weekend, its time for me to hunt and try other antivirus system. First choice is Kaspersky. When im trying to check the pricing online, i was amazed that Kaspersky's online store was tagged as Dangerous by Trendmicro's Web filter. Now thats what i call "killing the competition" :)

But i wont settle with Kaspersky as the review is not that quite good. Will try AVG or Nod32 or avast. Lets see..

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Unboxing

This is not unboxing post anyway since this is an overdue entry on my blog. Quite busy with work eh. Sony Ericsson Xperia X10, my 4month-old smartphone. The flagship of Sony in the Android-phone arena. At first im kinda angry with this phone because the battery life would not last for 24 hours of normal usage with no mp3's sound trip and movie. But since SE released the updated firmware version R2BA020, battery-life goes with 3 days of normal usage. Not bad for a smartphone if you ask me. Can't wait for the next update due Q4 of this year.

Package includes free pouch, phone, and headphone

Back of the phone

This is the old Firmware, new update is available now in Singapore and Australia thru SEUS (Sony Ericsson Update Service)

Bazooka Joe

[caption id="" align="alignleft" width="170" caption="Bazooka Joe"]Bazooka Joe[/caption]

How i miss Bazooka Joe. Kung ikaw ay kabataan ng 80's at early 90's, malamang kilala mo si Bazooka Joe. Ito yung bubble gum na may free comics ng mga misadventures ni Bazooka and the gang. Nangungulekta ako nito, pero sa kadahilanang nakabalot sa bubble gum ang comics, madalas itong pagpyestahan ng mga langgam sa aking taguan.

May bago ng henerasyon ng Bazooka, pero wala pa akong nakikita dito sa Singapore o kaya sa Pinas na nagtitinda nito.. Sana maging available na ulit ito sa suking tindahan natin para maipakita ko ito sa magiging anak ko at para maikuwento ko na kay Bazooka ako natutong magblow.... ng bubble....

Palpak na PCOS machines

Bakit kaya pumapalpak ang SMARTMATIC PCOS machines pagdating sa barangay tally. There's no room for erros lalo na sa time na ito na kung saan, ilang araw na lang ay eleksyon na. Programmer at technical nightmares pag nagkataon.  In a worst case scenario, baka mag-manual count pagdating sa barangay pero na-defeat ang purpose ng kaunaunahang Philippine election automation. Nagbayad pa naman limpak na salapi na kinuha sa ating mga buwis.

Im not against with automation, since nasa IT field ako. but with thorough planning at testing sana. Hindi yung ganitong bara-bara. Reactive sila sa mga technical problems with poor alibi. Basa ang papel, umurong ang papel, dahil ng moist, eh kasi manipis ang papel. Hindi na ako magtataka na pati ang alignment ng buwan at araw ay gawin na ding alibi :)
