AVG - no problem during Masm32 install
« on: May 26, 2012, 10:29:12 AM »
AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition 2012 complains about viruses in a few of the example programs, but I bet they are false positives.

This package is faster and less intrusive than the subscription to CA Anti-Virus was, but if it starts showing me desktop pop-up ads then I'm going to have to try a different package.

One way to get rid of popups is to write a little monitor with a list of undesired window titles. Usually, sending a WM_CLOSE is sufficient, and polling every 100 ms will not have any effect on performance.

I just had one case of a nag window with no title, though. Bad luck, but Process Explorer showed me the executable's path, so I disabled it 8)

AVG detects some Masm code as malware. Example - even a simple function call MessageBox or exe without Import Table
Sorry for the bad English
