Sorry if this question has been raised before, but I've done a search and cant find any reference.
Running Windows 98SE. I have used AVG for about four years. Recently installed AVG7 Now find that every 45 seconds or so a little pop up box in the bottom right hand corner of my screen comes up showing AVG E-Mail Scanner Connecting to 22.214.171.124 I've tried to connect to this URL without success. Has anyone else had this problem and how do I resolve it.
In addition all my incoming e-mails now have a paper clip (attachment) showing - I appreciate that this refers to the AVG scanning of the e-mail but how do I prevent the paperclip from showing.
read this to correct the problem from Dan the Confused Fri, 12.11.04 | 14:09
Right click on AVG system tray icon and select Launch AVG Control Center. Click on E-mail Scanner (on the right) and then click the Properties button (bottom right). In the new window click the Configure button and then untick the Certify Mail boxes that come under the E-Mail Scanning heading (keep the Check Incoming/Outgoing Mail options ticked though). Click OK and all should be done
This is from the Djohn thread, I did as Dan suggested and it worked march
sorry! didn't mean to say it corrected the problem but as you pointed out it does correct what seems to be a fault & I was grateful to Dan the Confused for help in removing the paperclip from the e-mails as everyone thought I was sending them attachments. I am by no means very good with computers which is why I have always asked for help from this forum & was trying to help another member by just passing on info that had helped me. I have had several problems with AVG7 & after asking for advice (again from here) I have decided to use avast instead. Will remember my place next time.
Many thanks for the link and your ongoing help. Could I just mention that when I get as far as "Servers" mine reads for both Pop3 and SMTP - Host Automatic. I havent changed anything - will wait till we hear from you tomorrow.
