I installed cgminer a few days ago, and it worked fine.  I rebooted and suddenly it would startup and then hang.  It seems completely disabling AVG Free makes it work fine again; I can toggle it on and off and cgminer starts and stops at the same time (with a small delay, I think AVG is blocking some of the networking).  Nothing else seems to work - I tried disabling just the antivirus or rootkit, or just the Windows Firewall, but nothing else worked.  I tried adding an exception for the cgminer directory but didn't work.

I don't have AVG Firewall; this does not come with AVG Free.  Any ideas how to fix it?

This probably isn't your problem, but my BitDefender blocked the website of a pool I was mining at and likewise blocked the ports from my miners. Not until I turned off the web blocker did it work again.

Trade at C-Cex, my favorite exchange!          Aysyr Reputation Thread

last time downloaded cgminer chrome blocked the download as malicious, I found that kinda cute

I'd guess it is because mining programs have been built into viruses before... so block ALL the things

Why bother with AVG? Just use windows security.
