I brought my PC out of standby this morning, and within the first few seconds, my Comodo firewall asks for permission to allow AVG updater to access the internet. I found that odd, as AVG has long had full access, but I went ahead and allowed it. When it was finished, I brought up AVG, and in the scheduler section, the update time had changed from 4:29 p.m., which it had been set at for months, to 4:44 a.m. 4:44 a.m. was the exact time that what I just described had happened this morning. I closed AVG, and it appeared to shut down completely (the icon in the notification tray disappeared). Whether it actually did or not, I am not sure, as I immediately opened it again through the start menu. But I have NEVER seen the tray icon disappear before.
Now, I did change the automatic scan time for the first time in months just this weekend (it might have been Saturday, but I think that I did it yesterday), and I wonder if that had anything to do with it.
I am always concerned when a security program (AV, AS, Firewall, etc.) does something unusual. Therefore, any comments or advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you to all who take the time to reply.
