Fix- antivirus gone after windows update

Antivirus protection in the age of technology is a must have the thing. and since windows 10 is out there in almost every new windows computer there has been many issues and Microsoft is still working on them.

After every windows 10 update, there is a new problem and we have been testing windows 10 on multi pal computers. but we think that every good thing comes up with some dis-advantage

  • I had the same problem when I upgraded. my friends advised to uninstall the current version of avg (keep your certificate registration) and then re-install. I did this and it worked — avg desktop icon is there and “Safe Money” feature is available
