How to Delete disable AVGIDSAgent ?

September 17, 2016 at 10:20:36
Specs: Windows 7
My shutdown was very slow I didn’t know why until ….
because of avgidsagenta.exe

Boot windows in SAFE Mode (F8 when booting win)
Then go to services :
Disable the AVGIDSAgent
or better delete it :
sc delete AVGIDSAgent
Can also delete or rename avgidsagenta.exe in C:\Program Files (x86)\AVG\Av

Rather than disabling part of your current protection, maybe you should consider a different AV program altogether?

Maybe it's a valid program but it has nasty impact : shutdown goes from 10 seconds to 5 minutes....

Well this part of protection (ID protection) really is not needed
And even if in AVG option, there' s an option to untick to disable it..It's not truly disabled... Service cannot be stopped killed and it slows my laptop shutdown
same effect on 2 different brand laptops (both i7 proc )

AVG should fix their code, shouldn't they ?

Uninstall completely and use a different AV program.
There are other good free AV programs.
Though you have to pay for it, I have found that Webroot Secure Anywhere is very good and is extremely light on system resources. You barely notice it is there unless it blocks some web page you accidentally clicked on that is not safe. You do not see pop ups about updating or scanning, it just works efficiently in the background. (NO, I have no connection to them, I just have been using their AV program for years and have no problems or complaints.) I even use their app on my phone and that is completely free.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

thanks
but I prefer to use a free antivirus one as I'm really a low-risk Internet user atm

Quite OK with this recipe : AVG with this deleted service
Avira is also a good 'free' option

Sure normally a paid-version antivirus should have advantages (performance, no ads ...) but read reviews before buying :

Google for some more reviews
Better read several ones

Like I said, there are other good free ones out there. I used Avast for a while on a few machines until that got too annoying. Some recommend Microsoft's free option.
Reviews are generally good but I am cautious of AV reviews because you do not know which ones are influenced by the big outfits out there since they do a lot of advertising which is money that get spread around more than we would like. Recommendations here I have found to be more reliable in general, though every now and then someone tries to sneak a plug in that appears to be suspicious and not honest. Those we try to point out when we notice them.
Your choice.
