I have recently had a problem when opening Mozilla Thunderbird.Previously it has always started AVG and downloaded the mail then AVG has stopped.Now AVG continues to scan for a long time,and wont stop scanning when "stop" is clicked,it even continues after Thunderbird is closed.
Is it Thunderbird or AVG that needs fixing,and what should I do? Many thanks for any suggestions.
I understood that it was not wise to run two anti virus alongside as conflicts can occur. I would uninstall AVG and then immediately install Avast. I can wholeheartedly recommend Avast, having used it since I dumped AVG 6
I've noticed similar behaviour (albeit with AVG and OE6). In my case, this arises when a task (e.g. downloading) is interrupted. AVG doesn't appear to detect this and doesn't quickly terminate - it times out after quite some while, long after the mail client has been stopped (and isn't anything to do with a large mail waiting in the wings). But doesn't seem to be any bad effects as a consequence.
I dont think it was a large Email,I have uninstalled AVG and installed Avast. It is not as user friendly as AVG but it did find 2 infections. Thanks for the advice,I shall try and see if I can get along with it anyway.
