    AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5.0.50 plus

    What is the counter for 'Detected malware so far', and where can I see what malware it has detected? And what it has done with it?

    Scanner settings: 'Scan for tracking cookies' is disabled.

    Reports shows one line every day for scheduled scans

    The riskware is marked down as being ignored probably because you are configured to take the recommended action, which is to take no action with riskware (leaving it to you to decide whether you wish to exclude this fike from future scans, or delete it, or simply be reminded of its existance each time).

    You won't find a copy in quarantine because it has been ignored. If it causes the detection counter to advance each time you scan you can do the following:-

    1) Just reset the counter and continue having the file found each scan;

    2) place the file on the exclusion list so it doesn't get scanned;

    3) configure AVG-AS not to scan for riskware in future.
