    AVG, Windows 10 VM crashes

    LGW53 Lurker

      Last week I began having massive problems with VM's crashing my WIndows 10 host and thrashing my C: drive to the point I had to use disk images to regain a bootable machine.


      After days of trial and error I've narrowed it down to AVG Internet Security, ver: 19.6.3098 build 19.6.4546.439 which is the most recent build as are the definitions in use.


      I'm assuming, yes - I know, I shouldn't, that one of the recent updates to AVG is the cause of this problem.


      I'm currently moving to another AV product but I've relied on AVG for decades and I'm reluctant to do so.


      The VMware host, VMware® Workstation 15 Pro, version 15.1.0 build-13591040 runs without any problems, even with AVG running. But moments after attempting to load a VM, ANY VM, I get the "sad face" blue screen and Windows goes into recovery mode but can't. The only fix is to restore a disk image.


      None of the software involved is installed on my C: drive; AVG, VMware or my VM's. HELP!


      Short of tossing AVG, which I'll do if needed, does ANYONE have any suggestions about what's going on and how to fix it?
