Virus Message, CL Windows

Post by Lorikeet » Tue Jun 07, 2011 7:41 pm

Theo left a message on my ICQ "antivirus is saying CL for PC has a virus now, even a fresh download". I don't know what to do other than post here. He's gone already anyway, but if/when I see him, if anyone else has had this trouble or had an idea, let me know.

Yes, I've been having this problem with AVG for the last 2-3 weeks. I have to disable AVG temporarily to get it to let me run CL.

For months and months I've had to tell Norton 360 yet again that CL's Windows update wasn't trying to invade my computer. Every CL update requires establishing the update as a trusted application with Norton, maybe because the version name of the updates change. I think. Or something.

After telling Norton to trust various CL updates, no virus scan has ever found malicious software on my computer.

I have no idea if this is related to Lorikeet's post.

any thing you download(or "update") Norton will consider it a virus.

AVG is heading the same way as Norton its not good you use AVG or Norton on a home pc.
AVG was for home use, but now for is business and Norton was always only for business.

Use Peekblock or Advast.

I had the same experience as Mjollnir. I recently switched from AVG to Avast. AVG no longer allowed me to stop auto-updates. I really like to be in control of updates. Also they kept putting up annoying advertisements.

When combining someones personal preference of antivirus with the internets I've read some funny stuff... but recommending Avast over Norton? That just makes me lol.

Thanks for posting and the replies :) I'm currently using AVG Free from home and haven't tried logging on recently til last night when I found the virus thing. Guess I'll tell AVG to ignore it or find a better antivirus.

Really? I have the opposite reaction, anybody who suggests norton is worth using at all let alone that it might be better than brand x anti-sirus is met by gales of laughter and much derision from everybody in my office

I laugh at anyone that stands by any antivirus program. They're all terrible.

Might be, but they're pretty necessary. Maybe not for users but certainly for businesses.
