After hearing about avg anti spyware on another thread, I downloaded and installed it. Since then, AVG anti virus won't load at startup. I can load it later on without a problem. Can't see the option for it in msconfig either. Any clues on how to fix this?

Orrrr.......  do the right thing and RE-install the AVG A/V.

These two programs both use some of the same .dlls and core components.  There's a combined version of them and other tools called AVG Internet Security that does both.

Reinstalling the Anti-Virus should straighten out the lost boot startup reg entries or whatever else got 86'd.

ETA:  AVG just did a version upgrade from v7 to v7.5 that was a forced reboot update.  Assuming this could mean your A/V version may have been the older one and it wasn't happy with the newer version anti-spyware install.

Try what I mentioned above and see what happens.

Just because JB69 wrote more words doesn't mean he is right and I am wrong.

Trust your feelings, the force will guide your actions.

These aren't the droids you are looking for.

Move along.
