    Default AVG Anti-Spyware and SpyBot Patch - False Positive?

    Hello,

    Sorry if this is an old issue but I just upgraded from ewido to AVG Anti-Spyware and the scan seems to want to find an issue (see Report below.)

    Should I just permanently add these entries to the Ignore list so they don't keep coming up?

    Thanks in advance

    The problem with AVG Anti-Spyware and the patches has been noted before. See the posts by Death Eternal on Page 19 and Page 20 of the Solution to fix the pop-ups in TeaTimer thread.

    Thank you for the answer

    I did try to use the Forum Search but received way to many results to wade through
