I've just switched on my PC and I have my AVG free set to autoupdate, while it was starting up I went and made a cup of tea. Imagine my surprise when I found Internet Explorer 7 had opened itself and was advertising AVG Internet Security.
I have to say this has never happened before and I can only assume that this happened as part of the update. I do know I don't like it doing this.
This happened to anyone else?
If this is a one off then fair enough but if they start doing this all time I will be trying something else, its too much like the way spyware seems to work and I am not happy.
Hi, yes it happened with me too when I started my pc this morning - it was impossible to remove by simply closing its window. I pressed my re-start button and got rid of it that way. Mine had opened my Firefox! I update my AVG manually on a daily basis.
I have just run Ad-Aware etc and my 1-click Maintenance, then done a manual AVG update (just the virus data) - upon completion of the update my Firefox automatically opened with an added Open tab (which I did not initiate) showing AVG and inviting me to buy AVG!
I don't like this, if it proves to be a regular feature of AVG I will get rid of AVG and use a different anti-virus program.
