I’ve been running this freeware for over a year and have been very satisfied. As a part of its scheduled scan it labels an occasional internet explorer temp file that shows up every couple days as an “exploit” and a threat and quarantines it as unhealable. I am uncertain as to this file’s source (buttondbfeed[1].html ) and have not been able to detect it or block it on a “live” basis which does represent a concern. AVG’s automatic update is fast and happens pretty much daily, at a time I can schedule.
