Emsisoft Anti malware, downloaded from here, is causing AVG to repeatedly say that Emsisoft is malware, virus adware etc..... what can I do to stop this, it's very annoying. I have told the AVG program that this program is ok but still it creates these warnings many times a day....

Thank s in advance

If AVG is still detecting EAM despite taking action to ignore it while downloading, then temporarily disable AVG until you download and install EAM.

Make sure you report the detection to AVG.

You should also report the detection to Emsisoft at the Emsisoft Anti-Malware Support Forum
