PC froze, and AVG icon had big X on it. After reboot, PC will not launch Windows OS. When try to start in safe mode, it stops at avgidshx.sys. Researching how to fix it.

Just an update. I sorted it in the end by manually editing the extension on each offending AVG file name from .sys to something like .tmp. It didn't work immediately, but the next day it was working. I still can't understand the logic of that. Once it was working again, I had to ininstall and reinstall AVG.
