I just upgraded AVG free to version 126.96.36.199. I do programming almost daily and sometimes I recompile the code tens or hundreds of times per day. With the latest version of AVG, every time I make minor changes in the code and recompile the program, the AVG starts scanning the executable and it informs me it will take up to 15 seconds to finish it. This is not acceptable for me, as it would slow down the development to a crawl. All my programs are located in a particular folder (C:\MyCode). Is there a way to tell AVG not to be concerned with any of the code from that folder (unless I decide to scan the entire folder)? What other options do I have, apart for disabling the antivirus?
1. Internet Security: When I launch AVG Internet Security, it shows RED on "computer update required" and when I click that box, it pops up with "Antivirus update is required." When I click fix now button, and yes to allow, I get popup: "update completed successfully." But everything is still RED. Is it updating?
2. Driver Updater: Keeps telling me my driver is out of date for Realtek HD Audio and tries to force me to purchase update. But when I check my device manager, there's no yellow indicator to confirm the AVG assessment. Are they just trying to sell me something I don't need?
I really want to be able to trust this company, but I'm becoming skeptical. been a customer for many many years over 5 computers since day one.

Hi My avg internet security says I am fully protected, but the hacker attack says I have to put on enhanced firewall. This does not work.. But going through settings components it says my enhanced firewall is on. I notice the last couple of days a lot of blocked items in the logs. Can you help please. Thanks Frans.

I have just installed Secure VPN, but I am confused, it said 60 Free Trial, yet when I logged in today it said tree trial expires in 29 days? I thought it would not expire till June, but it's looking more like the 19th of May, so I am really confused by this, do I got a 60 day trial or just 39 days?
