Having unistalled Norton A/v 2004 software, I then downloaded AVG free s/w. Simply question, how do I know its working in the background, sometimes the icon is in the tray and sometimes it's not, only way to get the icon is to open the avg control manager. I don't mind not having the icon there, but I want assurance that AVG is working.
Hi, I assume you are talking about AVG7, many of us here use it, so it is well tried and tested. I would suggest that you set it to do a full check each day at say 8am, keep it updated by checking daily while on-line and don't worry about it, it will be doing it's job without you noticing most of the time. You should also have Ad-Aware click here also free and to be kept up-to-date while on-line with regular checks, and Zone Alarm firewall too from click here
