According to ZDNet, users running the free version of the AVG 2011 anti-virus program today met an unfortunate error, but not one caused by any malicious program.

Instead, a new update for the software is causing problem for users running the Windows 7 64-bit operating system (OS). Apparently users are receiving a serious error after installing the mandatory update, causing some to not even be able to boot up Windows on their machines.
The problem is caused once the system is rebooted after the update is installed and users have reported receiving the following error message, "STOP: c0000135 The program can't start because %hs is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.”
If you are one of the unlucky users presented with one of these messages, three possible fixes are presented on the AVG Forums. However some have reported that the only way to remedy the problem is to repair your Windows partition using the Windows recovery disc.
