Everything in effect stops until AVG is finished, which takes a few minutes.Have you any comments, other than to dump AVG and install another AV ?

This page is updated every time our analysts update the signatures in our malware database.

Thanks again Alan for saving me a lot of time and trouble.

I have been using this program for years now and havent seen anything bad about it, except dat sometimes updates dont want to download, but its easy to use it than other anti-viruses which are way more complicated to use and to find updates, I recommend AVG to every person with a PC @ home or schools too.

Have the free version but keep getting a screen to upgrade to a pay version and cannot get back to my free version screen.

Tried uninstalling and reinstalling and keep getting the same result.
