    Is there a place where we can report software that came with viruses? I hate people that do stuff like that. I just downloaded and installed AVS audio converter and AVG nailed it with 3 viruses.

    I think there is a way under AVG, to report a infected link/download that is, although I'm unnsure how you do it..

    But dose AVG take any sort of action on the place that is distributing the virus? I downloaded this AVS audio converter right from there website with the viruses. Lucky for me AVG caught them and wiped them out.

    Well as long as a solution for the virus has been released, I think all they do is update the 'link scanner'..

    That stinks. To bad there is not a place to report viruses that can take action agents those that make them and distribute them.
