Having uninstalled AVG virus checker, Outlook continues to look for an AVG DLL and interrupts every thing I do in Outlook? How can I get AVG to give up?? I use XP, Outook 2003.

Having uninstalled AVG virus checker, Outlook continues to look for an AVG DLL and interrupts every thing I do in Outlook. I un- and reinstalled Outlook 2003. Still no cigar.  How can I get AVG to give up?? I tried Detect and Repair in Outlook. No cigar. What other options are there?

Hello BillArdis,

1. An AVG addin could still be installed. Disable Outlook Addins.  Go to Tools > Options > Other > Advanced Options > Addin Manager or COMM/Addins and disable any AVG addins.

2. If no joy, you have to run AVG installation using SETUP.EXE from AVG7 directory (directory with installed AVG) or using a downloaded installation file (http://www.grisoft.com -> Download section).

Running the installation process recognises the existence of installed AVG7 and the ?Add/Remove Components? option is offered.

3. Reinstalling and using the Add/Remove option is necessary for example for the case that there is a new supported e-mail client (Outlook/Eudora/The Bat!) installed on the PC after the installation of AVG7.

This is the hook I failed to ferret out. Drill, drill, drill to find the problem add-in. Thanks again!

nothing more than...if uninstalling AVG Virus Deflection program causes a remaining hook into the registry with an left-behind DLL....this is what fixed it for me: disabling it -- in Outlook's Tools > Options > Other > Advanced Options > Addin Manager or COMM/Addins, and disable any AVG addins.
