I'm getting it with AVG. First I get a language install request and when I refuse the virus blocker comes on. 5PM in California. Dan.

I went through all that crap with internrt protection company's, I was told they infect your pc themselves so you think your getting your moneys worth. I. Finaly found that windows has there own scans and cleanup for free and I never again had any trouble.

On my desktop now that has avast and still nothing. I do have superantispyware on both systems, I dont know if that is helping though but its the only thing both comps have in common.

I dont get no message but i dont have antivirus or nothing. Personally i dont believe in that junk i think it is a waste of money you can tell when your computer gets something they allways get real slow if they are sick!!
plus i cant put ativirus on mine cause i am runnin  windows xp pro with a activation crack. if it gets a virus i reboot!!




Whoopee
