Hello everyone.Something odd has happened and Im puzzled. I have been running AVG free on my computer. I keep it updated and run frequent scans.Never a problem.
Well this morning I got up and logged into my computer. I got a message from Windows Security that I dont have antivirus! I clicked on my AVG icon and it does show that I have AVG and am in fact protected.
What could have caused Windows Secuity to fail to detect my antivirus all of a sudden? the only change I made to my computer was to password protect my administrater account for XP last night.I am a bit apprehensive!

I have run a full system scan and I come up clean.no infections.

It could be a possible sign of infection
I would post in Am I infected just to be sure
