Can anyone tell me what the icon is that is supposed to be displayed alongside the search links in Google. Mine is turned on, but nothing shows. I installed 8 two days ago so a browser restart has obviously taken place. Thanks.
On your AVG quick start Icon does it show red or is it clear.Ive actually turned my link scanner off.As there is a bit of a clash with McAfee, McAfee will tell you it's a bad site and Avg says its a good site and vice versa.Also AVG takes to long to work out if its a bad site or not with all the circles turning over all the time until it finds out.I find it uses up your CPU and also makes McAfee S/A do the same so a bit of a clash between the two of them.Now what one is gives the best protection I do not know.But I will stick with the one that I know.No idea why it is not working on your computer unless maybe your Firewall is preventing it from running.
I turned off the AVG Link Scanner (disabled the IE plugin - couldn't find any other way to do it).
Not only is it hogging CPU, but also b/band bandwidth. The time Site Advisor takes to download info. is negligible, but I can see that Link Scanner is downloading for many many seconds after the Google page has loaded.
