Hi, I have a free AVGAS 188.8.131.52. I changed guard.exe to Manual using start-->run-->services.msc and then I stopped the process becuase I don't want it to run in the background and create conflicts. After I stopped guard.exe - AVGAS refuses to start! When I click on AVGAS (having stopped guard.exe), I keep getting: "Connection to serrvice failed. Please reinstall AVG Antispyware 7.5" To open AVGAS, I have to re-start guard.exe. Anyone came across a similar problem? Anyone knows a solution? Thank you for a great product and a wonderful, supportive community of users. G.
