|Hi Johnw and Derek, also Rolandjs,|
I have been trying to understand just what I did wrong, because as my initial question I referred to deleting two AVG technologies programs and I seem to recall that I saw(x86) somewhere as I did it. RolandJs earlier comment mentioned Program (x86)directories, So I had a look in my windows/SysWOW64 folder and windows/System32/ folder and just to check also windows/system folder which was empty, using simply the start button and clicking on computer/BootC:/windows/etc
I thought I had the mfc110u.dll file in theSystem32folder but it was mfc100u.dll, anyway I doubt it it would have been usefull because both folders had a pair of common named files mfc42.dll & 42u.dll files installed on the same day 11/03/2011 and only an hour exactly apart with a different size total of KB's so even if my wanted file had been listed in System32 and as I presumably need it in SysWOW64 it would have been no use. I believe My computer is set up for 64bit, I don't know how to tell?
My next thought before I start as Johnw suggests, Would a Restore point to before I started to remove the two AVG programs (x86)? still retain these programs because They are still in the computer until overwritten. Would this get me back to before I believe I deleted the file that is missing.
This could be followed by trying to use any AVG deleting program I have deleted.
Should this fail would an application to AVG either to accept a paid for protection or to use their free protection come with the required mfc110.dll file. so that in due course they may be deleted under AVG control.
