Please be informed AVG 2012 includes a new AVG Advisor feature. It is designed to warn user that there could be a memory leak in your browser (in a script or a flash within a visited website, respectively). AVG records an average amount of memory used by a browser and is regularly checking the value during browser usage. In case the memory consumption is significantly increased, user is informed about possible memory leak. Browser re-start is recommended in such scenario.
Please see an example of AVG Advisor informative window here
In case you would like to disable AVG Advisor (this may be handy in case you are used to work with internet browser differently than most users), you may proceed as follows:
- Open AVG user interface and press F8.
- Select the Appearance item in the left tree.
- Untick the Display AVG Advisor performance notifications option (screenshot).
- This will disable both the notifications and memory usage monitoring.
- Click OK to save any changes.

What browser version are you using? Do you have browser add-on's? Do you open a lot of complex or non-mainstream web pages or games?

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

The first part was informational.

"AVG 2012 includes a new AVG Advisor feature"

The second part should be possible to answer.

What browser version are you using?
Do you have browser add-on's?
Do you open a lot of complex or non-mainstream web pages or games?


Soooo, this new feature is saying it thinks there is an issue. It may or may not be true. Either some issue on your side or the web page you look at is causing this new feature to complain.

If you want you can follow that link to a way to disable that warning. Disable it if you feel it is in error.

Thanks for help but friend suggested uninstalling AVG and then reinstalling. Hopefully seems to have worked.

I used to get the same notifications till I turned them of and I am using Opera. I came to the conclusion that AVG was being a little bit to pedantic as it came up when using relatively simple web sites like this one.
