Just today I began getting AVG aborting connections after being detected by Web Shield when I attempt to start Attack Boxes or Target Machines on TryHackme.  This is the first time that this has happened in the more than 1 month that I have been on tryhackme.com cyber range.

It's coming up as
Process:  C:\Program Files\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe

I have deleted my chrome cache and I have also entered this url in Virus Total and it comes up clean.  

Is this a problem/error with the threat definitions / dictionary of AVG?  What is the best way to resolve?

Thank you for providing us the info, Corey.
Sometimes, this might be a false detection. In this regard, we'd suggest you to submit a false positive request by visiting this link
Once you submit a request, a group of analysts will review the site & whitelist it, if it is found to be safe or goes through the clean notes of AVG.
Thank you for your understanding in advance!

Thank you for writing back to us.

We'd like to inform you that using the AVG Secure VPN will not cause any conflict with any operations performed by AVG TuneUp.
Could you let us know how you narrowed it down that the AVG Secure VPN is causing a conflict with AVG TuneUp?
Awaiting your response.

I have several subscriptions, all with different expiry dates. I would like to subscribe to the total coverage app. but feel that I should be able to have the cost reduced to acknowledge all the existing subscriptions. What is the cost of a subscription which covers ALL of the risks?  I am in the UK.

Hi all,

I am having some issues to connect to my work VPN - Citrix Gateway VPN - while using AVG. . I have allowed my VPN in the option 'Blocked & Allowed apps' but nothing has changed and I am not be able to find other options to fix my issue. Could you please help me with this?

Thank you in advance,

Appreciate your efforts in identify the component, Rob.
We can try adding an application rule for the VPN, as mentioned in this article to check if it helps.
Also, ensure that the newly created packet rule is moved to the top of the list.

I remember a setting somewhere in the AVG suite of products that controlled pinning folders in File Explorer.  I feel like I may have clicked a setting somewhere that I didn't understand because now, every few days, all of my recently used and pinned folders disappear and I have to start all over again.  I have come to really depend on the ability to pin folders and see recently visited file folders in File Explorer.  It's a real time saver when navigating your files.

Can anyone tell me which AVG Product has the setting that clears pinned folders in Windows 10 File Explorer?  I'm using AVG Ultimate with Internet Security for Windows, AVG Secure VPN for Windows, AVG AntiTrack for Windows, and AVG TuneUp for Windows.

Hi Bruce,

We're glad to help you with the info.
There is a possibility for AVG TuneUp to remove the quick access shortcuts while removing system junk Program temp files.
Our developers are already aware of this & working on it to fix it at the earliest.
Meanwhile, we request you to not clear folder untill it is fixed.
To skip the specific folder : Open TuneUp - Free Up space - System Junk - Program temp files - Uncheck 'Jump list temp files' to ignore. 
Note : Please ensure that it is skipped in subsequent scans & then fix the detected issues.

I have been using AVG for years. I don't understand why AVG didn't take care of the Subway Blaze problem. I just spent $119.99 for my year renewal. 

I had to install Malwarebytes to take care of Subway Blaze. 

Do you have a reason for not researching and taking care of this? I am seriously considering cancelling my long time subscription to AVG.

Hi Martha,

We're glad to look into this & help you.
Please clarify whether Subway Blaze is a game & the exact issue that you've experienced with it or what Malwarebytes has fixed.
If possible, include screenshots (https://tinyurl.com/yy4j568p) of issue for better clarity.
