I downloaded and installed AVG v7 for the first time the other day. Seems to be working great. My free one year with Norton was about to expire next month. Glad I saw someone mention AVG here. It picked up one trojan (dialer) that Norton didnt. 8O


Any machine that shows up here with a virus infection either has:
1) no virusscanner installed
2) norton anti-virus 200x installed

so not really surprised there.

You may want to install and run

I dont have spyware blaster but I have the other two apps. The dialer was an extra .exe file that came with some freeware program I had downloaded over a year ago. Never ran it so I guess that was a good thing. :wink:

If anyone hasnt noticed AVG 7 is now noticed by SP2 security center as the other versions werent.

This is probably the main reason for AVG 6 not being valid after the end of month.
I hadnt noticed it untill I created a new profile and it popped up.

Will this make AVG a nusance or a god send to help keep it updated which is never a bad idea or a frequent scan..?
I have the Security center turned off but always remember to update and scan every 2 weeks.. Others arent so wise..

Your correct in that AVG is not recognized by XP SP2. Probably due to MS going into the realm of Anti Virus!!

hmm, I ended up disabling the Virus portion of the security center on my mom's machine. 7.0 was not being recognized and she has SP2...
