Can you give information as to what specific threats are listed, including their full version numbers; and under which tab of the PSI advanced mode (click Advanced, top right of PSI window, then OK) they are listed.
Also which Windows OS do you use?

EDIT: Sometimes the obvious is overlooked. If you haven't already done so, you should re-boot and re- scan PSI after most updates.

Hi bjbunks

I'm not familiar with this product.
Tried searching the forum for previous problems - nothing.
Searched with Google and on Adobe.com - nothing.

There's plenty on Adobe SVG viewer, though.

Is this AVG viewer an older version, which is now replaced by SVG viewer, and is therefore end-of life and no longer supported by Adobe?

Copied from my above reply:

"under which tab of the PSI advanced mode (click Advanced, top right of PSI window, then OK) they are listed."

If you can do the above, it may become clearer, otherwise you'll have to wait for someone who is familiar with this.

TiMow,

I think the poster meant to type SVG. However SVG is also end of life as Adobe discontinued support for it from 1st January 2009.

http://www.adobe.com/svg/viewer/install/?promoid=D...

Scalable Vector Graphics is now being supported in browsers so plugins should not be necessary. I don't think IE has it yet though.

Hi (again) ddm

I think you're probably right - maybe confusion between a typo and AVG anti-virus products.
But I don't like to contradict, when this is an area of which I have little knowledge myself. (Fingers burnt in the past).
