Info about AVG 8.0 Warnings.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I thought I would post this here before I go off to doing some work (early mornings for me). Apparently AVG 8.0 gives problems when it comes to the Warning section on scanning. If you are getting multiple threats detected in the warning section after scan but no viruses or adware found then I suggest you use another similar program like Avast to see if this really is a problem.

I found out the reason my comp was on the fritz was because I deleted files that I needed (which I restored) because of AVG reporting it as Trojans Adware and so forth. So again if you get over 400 warnings on your machine but no viruses or adware found then it is best to search with another program similar to clarify this.

Info on some of this and more can be found if searching AVG warnings and other terms. Here is a thread that talks about this in particular. SO IF YOU ARE HAVING WARNING PROBLEMS, it is a good cause NOT TO FRET. Cheers!

Interesting. I've been using AVG 8.0 since it came out and I've had no issues. I actually like it better than 7.5 (except for the fact that I can't turn it back on after a gaming session )

Yes sadly this pertains to some of us and not none of us. Meaning some will not have any of these warnings pop up but some will. I actually plan on keeping AVG as I though as long as I ignore the warnings it is great. While some warnings can never be good the ones I have cannot be found by any other software programs (not even AVG as AVG insists I have no Viruses or Spyware).

Anyway, that is the truth, I posted this mainly so anyone having this problem can start breathing again instead of figuring they were infested to over breaking point with trojans and hackers.

I actually had that happen with earlier versions of AVG. One time it thought some game files were an embedded trojan and I freaked out and deleted them. Low and behold my game didn't work anymore.

Well said, brother. + rep
