    Wow I am having flashbacks from high school when I was writing a computer program and compiled it then wham anti-virus tells me I have a possible virus in the program I just wrote and just laugh and turn down the virus scan settings and all is good.

    Unless I'm totally missing a menu option I haven't seen any sort of exclude settings in AVG to have it completely ignore a file or directory. It looks like you can specify certain file extensions to scan, but it'd kind of defeat the purpose to take .exe off that list.....

    And when the error dialog box pops up the IGNORE option is apparently just a temporary/one-time thing.

    I may check out of AVAST's one, I've put AVG on all my computers and have had no problems with it at all, will never go back to Norton or one of the other big name bloated scanners.

    In AVG if you go into the test center then select tests. then either the complete test settings or select area settings and uncheck the "use heuristic analysis" at least I believe this is the setting that may be causing the issue. At least its something to try if you are having this issue.

    I checked the BETA version with AVG and it didn't say anything wrong about it.. maybe the last release coincidently had a sequence of data bytes in it that made AVG think it was something else.. feel free to download the latest beta if you're having trouble with it.

    Im having trouble with latest version too


    AVG either deletes the file, or windows refuses to load it. I have disabled Heuristic searches, but I am not going to remove my AV program, is there a way round this yet?

    EDIT:
    Turned AVG off temporarily and now I get the windows permission error and file won't run, even when I re-download the file and try it new

    Has anyone tried contacting AVG to get an exception setup?

    Like what has been mentioned in other posts the options are to either

    1) Download the beta
    2) Disable/uninstall AVG
    3) use a different virus scanner
