Hi all. I have AVG installed on my mac. Currently the field shield alert is popping up every 15 seconds with the following message: "Multiple threats secured! We've moved analyticsd to your Virus Chest because it was infected with MacOS:Adload-S [Trj]." I don't understand what this means? What is analyticsd? I've tried deleting the files from quarantine but they won't go (there's 180 files in quarantine, as the file shield alert pops up every 15 seconds..!). Any help? I don't know what what it means or to do with it! Thank you!!
AVG has Quarantined a file that a program needs to open. When i try to restore MENU>QUARANTINE i press on the quarantine in the drop down but nothing happens - it doesn't do anything or go to the files so I can restore
I keep getting a pop up message saying multiple threats secured. Looks like it is from an googleap address. I have clear the cache (on the Mac), I have deleted browsing history etc.. Not sure what else to do. I took a picture of the actual pop up from AVG but am not sure how to attach. Thank you.

I have a professional version of AVG Internet Security. I also use cloud storage with Justcloud. Since very recently I am receiving virus threat messages via AVG for my Justcloud service. I have spoken to Justcloud and they claim that AVG is deliberately blocking their software...
I am relying on my pc for work and I need to do online back ups frequently. I do not wish to compromise my security. The "professional" reply I received from Justcloud was: " Up to you really who you want to believe, us or them..."
Can someone give me some advice please: Is it safe for me to continue using Justcloud? What are the issues there, if any? Or do you suggest moving to a different cloud storage?
Recently I feel like I've been hacked or someone has control of my computer because last night my resolution suddenly went down and a ton of internet explorer pages opened. I recently accidentally accepted a contact request from someone I didn't know on Skype. I removed them immediately but it happened after I did that. I did a scan with AVG and it removed TrojanRansomer.dbb but it was a file that wasn't associated with Skype.
The file was in the virus vault, unfortunately without consent.exe active you don't have permission to restore it. I have finally resolved this, and I will record this for others who may share a similar fate. You are completely unable to run anything in Windows, or on the cmd prompt, without first putting it in /SAFE mode. Anyway, first, I looked at a previous version of the c:\windows\system32 folder (folder, properties, previous versions). I copied the file content.exe to a USB stick, I couldn't copy it to the correct folder, without permission. I then rebooted my machine into safe mode with a command prompt, which gave me administrator rights, and brought back some memories (I am that old) remembering how to use DOS copy; copy e:\content.exe c:\windows\system32\content.exe Rebooted and everything worked again. Sounds, easy, but it took me some time of experimenting with other methods, and a nod to someone on a tech forum, who gave me the idea from something they had dealt with. AVG has not shouted about the file again, so no idea why it did the first time, but I will be checking suggestions to protect more thoroughly in future.
