    Please list those as honest as you can. Please provide more then 5 reported news links per vendor to confirm. Please also indicate the problem in full.

    Please make sure to also post your honest experience about the problem with the anti-virus software that you have if you have experienced this major problem..

    Remember.... This must have been a widespread problem documented in the media.

    Thank you and much appreciated.

    I've noticed you've created a couple threads lately for the purpose of collecting info; in one thread you said it was for a client.

    Do you mind if I ask what it is you do exactly?

    Just google "avg faulty update" and you'll get lots of articles on different issues. Haven;t heard of many issues with other AV programs.

    Issue 1 - deletes files making windows 7 unbootable
    Issue 2 - flags adobe software as viruses
    Issue 3 - Breaks iTunes
    remixedcat says thanks.
