I just want to report what appears to be a bug with the latest version of the software that downloaded and installed itself on my machine the other night. I don't see a place to report bugs, so I'm posting here in the hopes that somebody from AVG will see it and forward to the right department.

I've got AVG Free version I have a Windows 10 Pro machine, version 1511, OS Build 10586.753. I use Mozilla Thunderbird for my email client, version 45.7.1.

Since the new version of AVG installed the other night, Thunderbird freezes and times out after the AVG "Scanning emails" window pops up when trying to download emails. Nothing will download. I tried several other potential solutions to no avail and finally tried disabling the email scanner in the AVG control panel and now everything downloads just fine. Since everything was working fine with the scanner before this latest version, I'm guessing the new version of AVG is the source of the issue.

Using 'Maintenance' for the first time.
It just stays on 'scanning'
When does it finally conclude?
How long should it take and does it advance through the next levels displayed on the Maintenance Page?

Hello Hamdy,

We understand your conern.
Please be informed that the virus defnitions for each security providing company differs.
For example: The particular file might be considered as a threat by AVG whereas the same file will be considered as less harmful or not a threat at all by other antivirus company.
In your case, the oracle application file seems to be found as a threat when you searched it on virustotal.
Since you have already scanned using AVG then we recommend you to ignore this.
Thank you for uploading the file on mediafire, we request you to upload the file to us using this link: http://www.avg.com/submit-sample  for further analysis.
Please feel free to contact us if you need any assistance.

I run AVG Tuneup 2017 on almost all features and then I try to create a  new restore point but the system restore page are grey out with a pop up window "System Restore Error Code: 0x81000203" and ask me to re-try it. I have tried to open "system restore" page but this error pop window is still there and all buttons on system restore page are grey out so that I can not create a new restore point and I can not open System Restore page to restore "Windows 10" to a previous restore point.

I find Microsoft.com user support group, it posting to answer this problem is turn off system restore and set it to "not configuration" but system restore is grey out and I can not find "not configuration" ?
