I am starting to feel the same way.
AVG had me delete some registry entries and re-enter the key they providers. It did not fix the problem. I am still getting the popup screen over and over again telling me that my license number has changed and I am still getting a License Number: Not Activated. At least they got back to me and did not ask to be paid to fix the faulty software they sold me. I am sending this to PCWorld Magazine for their help in resolving this problem. I just wish that I could get my $75 bucks back, but bought it as Sam's Club and they do not refund software, they need to stop carring it only provide software that works. I just wish I could move on to another AV program that works. Ron
