This just now happened, so I am now running my first scan. I turned my PC on, and AVG brought up a warning that the AV needed attention. When I tried to update, it failed to connect. I checked my Comodo firewall, and all the permissions for AVG to access the Internet were changed to "block". I returned them to "allow", and successfully updated. I started a scan, and right away, four items came up as "change" under "result/infection". They are: Boot Sector of disk, user32.dll, shell32.dll, and ntosknrl.exe. Note that these four items are being shown as "changes", and are not being listed as threats.
The only thing that I can think of that would change the permissions in Comodo for AVG to access the Internet would be malware. Because of this suspicion, any comments and/or advice would be very much appreciated.
Thank you to all who take the time to reply.
