|I have AVG on XP (machine I'm writing this from) and Avast on two other machines, Vista and W98SE.|
If I bump into one of those bogus anti-spyware website links, immediately AVG stops me in my tracks (despite me not invoking all of the online protection). Avast is quite happy to let them through and even allow their alleged scanning. Has anyone else noticed this?
Also, when I right click the context menu's to scan a file each of the following programs scan, then give an indication of whether anything was found:
"SpyBot, A-Squared, MalwareBytes, and AVG".
Not so Avast, which scans the file then the screen vanishes leaving me none the wiser. According to a website you have to (boringly) go the the program folder > Data > Reports folder. There is a log file there but no sign of my scan. What's the trick - I assume I've missed the obvious?
some other bloke...
