AVG disappeared


Over a week ago I disabled AVG for a while and didn’t think too much of it, forgetting to switch it back on. Now I just noticed that AVGUI.exe and AVGSVC.exe seem to have randomnly disappeared from my PC and so AVG won’t start from the Start Menu. I haven’t installed anything remotely dangerous and have been verifying SHA256 and GPG sig for all EXE files. Could something easily explainable have happened here? Has someone seen this problem before? I can see that the inbuilt Windows Defender has been running, so I suppose I’ve had at least some protection. Is it time to just ditch AVG and use the built-in? I’ve heard AVG is rubbish anyway.
