3 times now I got a message saying that I had a virus in the Documents and Settings folder and that I should run the AVG ANTIVIRUS program. Each time I ran the scan it found no virus. Do I need to use a different antivirus program????
By the way,I check for updates every morning and evening!!!

To be on the safe side I used the free online Panda Active Scan to scan my computer for virus's and it found a W32/Spybot.gen.worm virus.
I never had a problem with the AVG Antivirus program before and always checked for updates every morning and evening. Should I get a different antivirus program????

In my opinion AVG is just as good as the market leader Norton, and far superior to McAfee. Some malware does get by AV defenses, and that's why we recommend online scans. <_<
