AVG email scanner hangs/continues to scan endlessly after email download

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

Threaded View
Long after (endlessly after) my email accounts are all checked and even
my Outlook Express has closed, my AVG E-mail Scanner is still running
in the system tray. Quite annoying.

Any fixes?

You could turn it off. Why do you need it if you have real-time scanning
enabled that checks when any file is written to the disk? Set OE to read all
email in the restricted zone and in plain text - and block images in HTML
mail - unless you intervene physically to read something in HTML that you
have subscribed to. That should do it.

Is it any easier to decide to view HTML mail and attachments now than
before, when you have your settings to get text mail with no
attachments only? If it's not a one click deal like the showing images
setting, then it is too much hassle to have the default settings be to
convert HTML to text and to not accept attachments.

In Outlook Express, click "View" and then "Message in HTML". [Keyboard
shortcut: Alt-Shift-H] This let's you see the message in its original HTML
format even if your default settings are to read it in plain text. You may
have to click a warning bar which appears to show all images in the message.
So it's two or three clicks at the most, that's all.

Only read email in HTML if you implicitly trust the source.
Or may God have mercy on your PC.

BTW, I don't have "Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that
could potentially be a virus" checked because I receive a LOT of
attachments as part of my work and Outlook Express thinks that ALL
attachments could potentially be a virus.
