I recently reassembled my old machine and did a clean install of OS and programs. Everything is rock solid with this one exception.
I had AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition 2011 configured to scan for viruses daily. Whenever the scheduled scan starts the entire machine freezes.
I'm running a dual monitor setup; Primary monitor runs off a PCIE ASUS 6200 and the secondary monitor off of the on board Geforce 6100. When the machine freezes the secondary monitor displays a scrambled signal (white bars with misc. colors) which leads me to believe there is something wrong with the onboard GPU although I'm not sure exactly whats going on.
FYI - a user initiated virus scan completes successfully, no problem
Anyone else have any experience with this type of issue? Would a different virus scanner be appropriate? Or...I've been thinking about a new video card, but am not sure hardware would solve this problem if its a configuration issue.
I've been searching around but am unsure the best search terms for this issue. Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance.
