  1. Alright working on my friends custom built pc.

    Has the i7-950, intel gts 360, 9 gigs ddr3, 1TB harddrive.
    Vista Home Premium.

    But he installed AVG and it said he needed to reboot to finish install or update it but now he gets a blue screen. And it says:

    STOP: C0000135 {Unable To Locate Component}
    This application has failed to start because MSVCR80.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem.

    And I know there are programs to fix this paticular MSVCR80.dll but you have to be able to get into your system to download a fixer but I can't.

    I know you can use recovery disks but looking for another way. Any suggestions and will not load in safe mode or anything always blue screen.

    what you need need something like knoppix, UBCD4WIN or something like that a live cd to boot from to get into windows.

    A bit of googling seems to indicate that latest AVG update has caused the same problem to many other people

    1) Take a look at this thread. Someone proposed a solution. You can try it (at own risk. don't know personally if it'll work or not)

    2) You can boot into Knoppix to access the drive/delete files. See How to recover your folders/files when Windows won’t boot

    Oh. Also look at this TechSpot link AVG Free 2011 update pulled, crashing Windows 7 systems . It includes instructions from AVG that might also apply
