sorry to sound daft,but why will it work if i do that.

Your version maybe corrupt,this way we can find out if its just a setting with a fresh install.

Are you right clicking the file and selecting scan with AVG ?

  chrisjohn 21:48 11 Jun 07

no it should do it automatic when u click accept on a file that gets sent to u,their is a setting in options,scan files with,i select avg,but it just opens avg does not scan,i have reinstalled avg but still same.

Can you right click the file and scan ?

Sorry i dont use msn live,so maybe a bit useless on this.

Are you putting spaces in the appropriate places?

"C:\Program Files\Grisoft\AVG7\avgw.exe" /SE


"C:\Program Files\Grisoft\AVG7\avgw.exe" /SE %1

Do you get any error messages with the command you posted or nothing at all?

Ive got it so I will see if the command works on mine. (Ive got WLM and AVG)
