AVG just picked up on corrupted files, which linked to a generic message
although there was no virus.

Needless to say, download programs only from the websites of their

It looks like Avast is replacing AVG with Avast:

I seem to recall something about AVG getting bought & sold a couple of
times during the process of its deterioration.  Last I heard Avast was
still working tolerably well.  I also hear good things about Kaspersky,
but have never seen it in action.

It's been a couple of years since I messed with any of the above, and
then, only when cleaning out other people's machines.  The problems all
of the above attempt to control are unique to Microsoft products, and I
ran out of practical uses for those a decade or so ago.
