uses to announce that nothing is wrong (0 viruses found)?
These steal focus and ruin my typing, sometimes with damaging results.
Also, the e-mail scanner changes all my mail ingoing or outgoing
to change any URLs or UNC names by prefixing the typed address
with "HYPERLINK <hyerlinkreference>", making my outgoing
emails unreadable to my colleagues. We must communicate
addresses of files all the time.
I'm almost ready to dump the product.
Re: AVG Free popups are a problem
Set it to scan when you know you will not be using the system.
Email scanning is useless and prone to errors as you have found out.
Infact, I did not install that feature when I did the Custome install.
If you must open email attachemnts that have malware then an alert will pop
up telling you of the infection. :)
Check for security application updates at least weekly:
