    Hi,

    this was quite annoying. All the time, on a newly installed Windows 7, messages kept popping up, claiming nearly every program to be a virus.

    Finally i had to remove the AVG. I wonder, why there is no direct way of allowing questionable applications to the white list. It´s tiresome to always ignore that messages, when it´s obviously a bug in AVG Free 8.5, because on the XP install all this progs, something like CCleaner, IrfanView, QIP etc are "clean".

    this seems to be a common trait for AVG...
