CNET download of AVG Free Version then got malware
by eckahn - 7/9/10 9:45 AM
We downloaded the free version of AVG from CNET. We left the computer downloading. The next time someone logged on, we had AV Security Suite running - this is a very nasty piece of malware that acts like a Trojan virus and has infected all kinds of things including the registry. I have been working on getting rid of it.
However, I do believe the malware came with this download. The .exe file was created the first time someone logged on right after the download.
I am not asking for Tech help, just reporting the problem. It is very troubling that we downloaded a well known piece of software from what we consider to be a safe site and ended up with malware taking over the computer.
