Booting to Linux is pretty easy as long as your machine is still recognising its disk drive - and you have a boot disk. But yeah, it's definitely a handy option to have.

Meanwhile, I've googled for problems with installation of AVG 2014 to Win7 and am getting information that suggests it's a bit fussy. I know the installation failed because it told me so - what I'm not sure of is whether it failed because I have a problem or I have a problem because it failed. It all happened at once without any priors so I'm guessing it's somehow related to the AVG update - which Polly didn't do before having problems.

System Restore should help me find out if it's related, anyway.

I generally set my windoze (and Linux) installations to download updates automatically and tell me they're there, but not to install until I say so, just to avoid that sort of "what happened when to cause this clusterf*ck?" moments. But then I'm a little paranoid about such things...

I have Windows set to update every Wednesday automatically, everything else has to ask my permission. The only reason Windows Update is even getting a mention here is because it was set to update overnight on the very night my manual update of AVG failed and this problem happened. I doubt it has anything to do with the problem, although it seems unlikely the auto-update will have run because the borkingness happened before it was due and my machine was busy tying itself in knots instead of dutifully updating.

Oh god, someone had to say it....

Perhaps I should get Aristotal to converse with Weishaupt?

(weishaupt never has these kinds of problems)
