AVG Anti-Virus CloudCare Update failed – The update control file is missing

We received a failed update error on AVG CloudCare on the Server 2012 R2.

Error: Update Control File is Missing.

Tried reboot and that did not help.

Here is the fix for this error;

  • Open up AVG Control Panel from System Tray
  • Click Options –> Advanced Settings
  • Select “AVG Self Protection” from the side and un-tick the “Enable AVG Self Protection” check-box
  • Open Explorer and Delete the file C:\ProgramData\AVG2015\cfg\update.cfg
  • Restart your computer
  • Enable “AVG Self Protection”, click “Apply”
  • Now Click Update to complete the update successfully.

Hope this helps.

Apple – A letter from Tim Cook on Maps

We are extremely sorry for the frustration this has caused our customers and we are doing everything we can to make Maps better.

The Magic of Doing One Thing at a Time – Tony Schwartz – Harvard Business Review

Great article..

It’s not just the number of hours we’re working, but also the fact that we spend too many continuous hours juggling too many things at the same time.

What we’ve lost, above all, are stopping points, finish lines and boundaries. Technology has blurred them beyond recognition. Wherever we go, our work follows us, on our digital devices, ever insistent and intrusive. It’s like an itch we can’t resist scratching, even though scratching invariably makes it worse.

Mail wants to use the “login” keychain – FIXED

I have recently started getting pop-up message from the Mail application asking for Keychain password. (Keychain password is same as your login password, unless you have changed it.) The pop-up message reads “Mail wants to use the “login” keychain.” and the box for password.

I typed the password and received few emails. After few minutes, pop-up showed up again asking for password and process continued. Pretty annoying, right?

Perspectives – I Love Solar Power But…

I completely agree with James. Better utilization of infrastructure is more environment friendly than having Solar Panels at the cost of clearing trees from the land.

I’m personally not crazy about clearing 171 acres in order to supply only 4% of the power at this facility. There are many ways to radically reduce aggregate data center environmental impact without as much land consumption. Personally, I look first to increasing the efficiency of power distribution, cooling, storage, networking and server and increasing overall utilization and the best routes to lowering industry environmental impact.
