Possible TeaTimer problem?

By macx
Jul 10, 2008
  1. XP SP2, AVG Free, AVGAS, SSD

    Everything was working fine, tonite (nite shift at work, on my laptop)
    all of a sudden I couldn't access the net altho everything showed
    connected. Also everything all of a sudden got slow.
    AVG can't connect for updates, either. And AVG 7.5
    somehow got shut off, altho I can get into it thru the Program
    Menu and run it, BUT the Control Center won't start up and
    run, and I can't scan with it because of that. So, something's
    up, but what?

    Had disabled / not installed / (whatever) Tea timer when I installed
    SSD. Now, all of a sudden, I have TeaTimer running? And it won't
    let me delete it, says it's running or something.

    How can I get rid of TeaTimer? Any way short of deleting this install
    of SSD and downloading and installing a new one?

    Might TeaTimer be the problem? If not, what else might be doing it?

    I also seem to have something called AVGCC.exe - never heard of
    that before, don't know where it came from, or what it is. Anybody
    know?


    Thanks!!
