Paula, Yes, I'm sorry, too, but there seems to be no alternative.
I found the website to be helpful as far as they could go, but
no one was able to advise on what to do with the file "avgemc"
that continued to "not respond" other than that it was needed for
e-mail scanning, so should remain active.
I've used eTrust for a long time, even when it was InoculatIT,
and have never had problems with it.....but it has extremely
limited tech support. They have an e-mail process that is
very, very slow and usually ineffective. That's one reason I
hesitated so long before re-installing it.
I also have hope that after a few months maybe AVG will
have worked out the problems. It's still my favorite!
