I have only just noticed why my PC was running a little slowly on a Monday :) AVG is running a scan in the background. The icon on the taskbar has a grey arrow in it (see pic). If you use AVG and find the same thing happening just hover the cursor over the AVG icon to see if there is a scan in process.

Please don't turn this into a "I hate AVG" thread :)

I've set mine to run a scheduled scan once a week & I currently have that very icon displayed in my taskbar :) It's in addition to the normal AVG icon, which is also displayed, But that's on WinXP, it maybe different on newer OS.

just go into the avg interface click on computer scanner then you should see when the scan is scheduled. Think the default is daily at 12. click on edit schedule then you can either turn it off or rearange to whenever you want.

I have exactly the same. The normal icon was hidden, so yes there are two AVG icons.

I don't hate AVG, I have it on my main pc (4gb ram so don't notice it running) But on my lappy and daughters pc I use Avast, seems to be less resource hogging, so you could try switching?

Is it necessary to scan often?
