    So I got this alert yesterday...big red exclamation point in the system tray and when I open AVG, it says that Web Shield is not active. Here's the thing--when I open that component, Enable Web Shield is checked! So if it's checked, why isn't it active? And how do I reactivate it? o_O Thanks!

    Aaaaand...nevermind. Rebooted because my system was getting laggy, and it's active again as it should be.

    Although as soon as I logged back on, I got one of those Microsoft error report generated things on avgnsx.exe..."encountered a problem and needed to close". Oy.

    Additionally, take a look at this topic (if you're patient enough to read it :D). It may help.

    I had exactly the same experience as EditorSEM yesterday (March 31, 200:cool:.

    I had the same warning and the full protection was only restored after I had run CHKDSK. I run CHKDSK at least weekly and after installing or removing new software, so the problem may be with AVG Internet Security 8.0.
