It looks like a couple of weeks before I will get the money back. All it got me was their free version (with unlimited popups), and an unauthorized charge. I have had AVG for about ten years, but in the last couple of years when it is time to renew it has seemed like the pop-up hard sell has gotten worse and worse.I'm relying more on Pay Pal than hoping their customer service comes through. The negative reviews for this company's practices are well earned. I have had the feeling that if I didn't renew a feature my browsers would suddenly start to have problems. I also tried to disactivate it through a safe mode cmd line. No restore points and using the onboard system to retur to factory condition also fails.
System resources were used at a high level, all attributed to AVG programs.
I never authorized continued payments to this lousy company, but they took information from my Pay Pal account and made it anyway.
JR Edit: leaving the server logged in made no difference.
It still did not log the scan results to the database.
