After many months of tranquility I dont know if the AVG on my auxillary computer was suddenly feeling in need of excitement or what but it alerted me to 3 (apparently) seperate threats/infections in a matter of days.This was about a week ago and things have since abated. I was visiting different but reputable websites each time, and hadnt changed my settings. Each time thankfully the pesky gremlins in question were only in the tmp folder, were quickly neutralized and scans of my computer come back as clear.
An avg scan in safe mode reports 75 infections and 75 instances of "info severity" but I have been informed that this is just means cookies (I hope that is right ?).
I dont have access to that computer atm to do HJTlogs and there are no current symptoms so apart from the cookies thing this isnt an "am I infected post" I was just wondering if anyone had had a similar spell recently or read any news about maybe an Avg update causing false positives or something as it seems an improbable streak. I had received some legit warnings to update my adobe, silverlight mozilla add ons shortly before which Ive done but I guess that could have meant I was susceptible for a time?. A penny for your thoughts , if you use AVG has it been steady as she blows in recent weeks?
Thanks for taking the time to read and for any insights you might have even if its just to say youve had no problems .
