I use Aol 7 and AVG regularly updated.......2 virus attacks in the same “post”today........ Easily recognised by familiar garbled addresses, irrelevant title and nil contents. Both deleted
Aol is set up to automatically download the attached files, but not to open them.
Both were zipped “folders” one called itself Size.zip and the other I don’t remember but was equally recognised from the past. (Bugbear)
My point is that I ran AVG specifically at Download and Aol. It pronounced the whole thing OK. (I have deleted these folders now anyway)
I seem to remember that AVG would recognise a virus even though zipped? ........... Has this changed, or did I have to be daft enough in the past to unzip a file before AVG would intervene?
Perhaps more important. Am I missing the settings in AVG to make sure that it picks up an infected zipped file? I have looked all through, and the basic screen shows all systems green ticked.
