Paul, go into your programmes menue and get to avg. It will have a submenue.
You want AVG test centre. Hit enter on that. Then, hit the tab key till you
hear scan my computer. Enter on that. That will start the scan. AVG will
pick up the virus and quarenteen it.
I have had AVG for years and no probs with it.
Can someone help with this one please?
Around a month or so ago, I mentioned that I was not always getting any sound on my PC when switching on.
Eventually I lost all sound.
A friend who comes to help me with my computer and who set me up in the first place found that I had got a number of viruses on my PC.
When asked was I checking for viruses, I said yes but pointed out that I had
several concerns about AVG.
Normally, when I switch on and JAWS starts to speak, I will then get a
message about AVG which tells me aht I am now downloading the latest edition
and that when the download is complete, my free edition will be updated
I am then given an option to cancel by pressing alt C.
I ignore this last message and generally I am able to continue opening applications such as Outlook and the Internet.
I am however getting a second message saying something like "AVG Resident Shield" or something like that and then it says 30 secs.
I had inadvertently been stopping AVGfrom scanning for viruses but now I appear to have picked up a virus.
when checking it makes reference to a Trojan horse.
I am a little concerned about this as tonight I had to switch off my machine
twice before I was able to hear JAWS speak.
I am away over the weekend and so can't do much before then.
Can someone explain how I can check for this virus and ifso, can I get rid of it without having sighted assistance.
Also what can I do about AVGAS as I am a little concerned that it is meant to run in the background and yet is still bringing up the message it has always brought up.
Sorry for the longish posting but I hope someone can advise me on this one.
