  • Start the Complete Test for all local hard drives: In Basic Interface select Tests menu -> Start Complete Test In Advanced Interface select Tests menu -> Test manager -> click on Complete Test item -> click on Start Test button

  • Attention: Users of AVG Anti-Virus with updated virus databases may continue to receive false warning messages indicating that the I-Worm/Mydoom virus was sent from their email address. This is because the I-Worm/Mydoom virus changes the address of the sender of the infected email. This makes it very difficult to identify the actual sender of the virus, and therefore to notify the sender that his computer is infected. This may result in the virus displaying a different email address from that of the actual sender of the infected email. When such an email is detected by the anti-virus system on the computer which receives the infected e-mail, a warning message is often sent concerning the infection to the address that is indicated as the sender of the infected message - even when the email was NOT sent from this address.
