Antivirus Updates. Make sure your antivirus program is updated. If you use any of the ones I recommend, AVG or Avast!, make sure that you’re on AVG 8.5 or Avast! 4.8.1335. Even though AVG might have popped up saying, too bad, you need to pay, it’s not true, and every time they do this it annoys me. Go to www.filehippo.com and search for AVG. Download the most current version. For Avast!, there is a green box that will appear on your desktop that says “A new version of Avast! is available, click here to download”. Go ahead and do it, and then follow the instructions to reboot. If either product is saying that you are expired, or you don’t see their icons in the bottom right, do something about it!
