Grabbing an AVG Anti-Virus Screenshot

  Mike2002 22:28 10 Mar 2004

Does anyone know of a program that can grab the 'Virus Alert' full-screen warning message
that AVG displays when it detects a virus.
Pressing the Print Screen key has no effect; after the warning has gone, there is nothing in the Clipboard. Maybe AVG prevents any processes or programs from running.

click here for one that should do it for you.

WOW - That was a quick response!
I've downloaded the program - now all I have to do is wait for AVG to warn me of the next Virus!
I'll have to view some 'dodgy' sites to speed up the process (LOL).

5 minutes - a "slow" response compared to most here... :-}

The 'Screenshot Utility' program didn't work I'm afraid. "Already?" I hear you ask. Yep, I know the dodgy sites that bombard you with popups and forced downloads, saying "you MUST click 'yes' to this to continue." Rollocks, you're not getting the better of me!
Mind you, the system gets swamped by all this, and you're forced to cut the connection so you can sort yourself out. A big cheer for AVG AntiVirus Free Edition.
But it's back to the drawing board for that screengrab - next contestant please.

Just press "Print Screen key", then paste into a photo edit program to crop the screen

I can only wonder what sites you visit.

Now that's a thought

click here

I use this for game screen shots but it does most anythin on screen.

The "print scrn" key doesn't do it for me -- I have to press CTRL-Print scrn or ALT-Print scrn to get an screen image onto the clipboard.

I use the Print Screen button on the keyboard. It copies the screen into the clipboard from whereyou can paste it into a graphics package or Word. Failing that I have used PrintKey Pro click here which is more flexible.
