AVG 2011 is not a virus. Is it creating any troubles in your system or you just feel like its a virus because of the name change or something? You could have downloaded AVG free edition from the Original AVG site also instead of filehippo. Anyways if you want to remove it try this link - http://www.avg.com/ww-en/faq.num-34...

I had also noticed something else about it..at the bottom of my computer screen, it has a red sheild with an "x" in it...this also happened when i tried to get anti virus 2009..And it had the same similar patterns to it.

when u click on that little red sheild, it brings up a false window showing that your windows security is not updated. well at least i know its not a pop up virus like Anti Virus 2010.

If you installed it from a dic or from AVG websites, than its realla ntivirus program, but if you find this software named AVG 2011 automatically appeared on your pc without your installation request, that means its a fake antivirus, than remove it use anti malware program.
