My FreeAVG has just updated and now all PMDG files are being tagged as infected with the trojan Downloader.Agent.AQN. I know that various files can sometimes do this when in fact they do not, I am just wondering if anybody else is getting this message.Adam Christopher Volcekavolcek@hotmail.comAMD Mobile Athlon XP 2600+ BartonAbit AN7Corsair XMS 1536MB PC3200 DDReVGA NVidia GeForce 6800

Ad-Aware is ok to remove Spyware AFTER it's on your HD, there's the difference.Just keep SpyWare Blocker updated and your good.

I'm getting the message as well with AVG free version.Healed a file before realizing it was a livery folder so may need to re-download that livery.

Well later tonight another update was downloaded that has solved the problem. I got the same message on several other files not related to PMDG after I posted so as I had predicted it was just the virus definition that was causing the problem. Thanks to everyone who helped.Adam Christopher Volcekavolcek@hotmail.comAMD Mobile Athlon XP 2600+ BartonAbit AN7Corsair XMS 1536MB PC3200 DDReVGA NVidia GeForce 6800
