    Default AVG Virus Checker problems

    I have/had AVG v6 (free) installed

    AVG notified me that I had a virus in severall system dll's and to run AVG to fix it

    I ran AVG (which takes forever) and it didn't find any virus's ??!!

    I then tried to run online virus checker pcillin which I've used with sucess in the past to 'double check' AVG

    it wouldn't run

    so I deinstalled AVG (using the AVG deinstaller) and then ran pcillin - it found no virus's either

    however since deinstalling AVG I have intermittent 'can't find server' type problems, almost as if a part of AVG is still hanging around and acting like an impenetrable firewall

    this ring bells with anyone?

    Default Re: AVG Virus Checker problems

    It could be the virus not letting AVG detect/fix virus.
    i saw this problem on my mates pc.

    I suggest you download NAV 2002 (trial ver) and run that. It might not install in the first place cause of the virus preventing it.

    I had to disconnect the Hard drive physically and hook up to my system so my system could scan and fix the virus on the infected HD.

    It worked for me.
