AVG problem

  slightlymad 12:28 13 Mar 2003

I recently installed AVG. I've had a couple of suspicious emails which indeed turned out to have infected attachments, but I got no alert from AVG. (And yes, I've checked that the email scanner is active.)

If I save the infected email to my desktop, then right-click and select "scan with AVG", it confirms that there is a virus. But why won't it do it from within Outlook Express?

You have to tell AVG (an other antivirus software) where to look for viruses. Have you carried out the setup procedures?

Aah, the light is dawning. I've just checked the AVG Control Centre, and it was configured to scan Outlook. I've put a tick in "Use Outlook Express 5 Plugin", so now all should be well. Many thanks, €d.
