I installed Windows XP Service Pack 3 last Thursday. It went well. I installed the new free AVG version 8 today. I scanned my computer with this new AVG and found 160 warnings which I never saw before!! Yet the result was no threats! When I saw them warnings I nearly freaked out! At the end of the scan I removed them all to the virus vault for now. Here are a few examples of what was shown: File: Result/Infection: HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\ActiveX Compatibil (on all of them) Found Downloader.ConHook.1 Found Adware. Vundo - Rogue Suspect - Cram Toolbar - Begin2Search - Generic. Found Trojan.KillAV.F - Ciadoor.m - Stoped.6 I scanned with Spybot Search & destroy and Adaware 2007 and the results were 0 spyware etc. My questions are: 1) Does the new AVG recognize Windows Service Pack 3? 2) Should I restore the 160 items, removing them from the vault? 3) What is Active X do and what do I need it for. Do I need to disable Active X? If so, how? Please be gentle with me, I'm still a newbie! I'm sooo confused now. Please help if you can. Thank you.
