AVG + Email on Orange Broadband

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
Just changed my Orange broadband to using a 'Livebox' However, every
time I switch the computer on AVG tells me that 'Email scanning is not
fully functional'. I then have to configure in the AVG control centre
and it's OK. How can I set up my AVG so that I don't get that 'not
fully functional' message.

Not a major problem, just a bit irritating!

It's an AVG defect and needs fixing.  If you google for it you'll find that
a lot of people have been having the problem for ages.  I get it every
reboot and either just leave it alone and it'll go to the fully functioning
state after a few minutes or get the email scanning properties box and just
click OK.

Turn off email scanning  (or preferably uninstall it) - it brings no real
benefits in any AV, and merely increases the risk of failed connections.

In AVG, you can turn off the 'not working' notification of any of the
module, by r-clicking on the module in the Control Center, and selecting
properties - then selecting the "Ignore faulty condition..." box and click
OK

From experience (sorting out other peoples' infected machines) i`m not
impressed with AVG.

I use Avast myself (also free). Looks even better with the MacLoverOSX
skin :-)

Happened to me as well.   I uninstalled AVG and then re-installed it using
the latest download - problem gone.   I saw someone said that they found
infection on a machine using AVG.   Curiously, when I first switched to AVG
it found infection that Norton had missed.

That`s because Norton blows goats :-}

My first suggestion for anyone with a potentially infected machine -
particularly if they`ve got Norton or AVG installed is to run Sysclean
from Trend Micro

(second link from the top on the front page, then hit "sysclean")
