Default Plausible scenario

Hmm. OK, how about this:

- New virus is released, spreads quickly
- Virus attacks your computer
- AVG hears of the virus, releases update that can detect it
- You get update on your computer, AVG does a scheduled scan and reports the infection
That seems like a plausible scenario to me. AVG does not provide any information about the virus in its references, but I am not sure what that means. Perhaps I should be asking AVG about it.

This is my wife's computer, and she plays games, gets lots of email, and goes to web sites I would never stumble upon.

I did manage to install a new ATI Radeon Xpress 200 driver, dated 2007, but it was not an easy job. I downloaded on my own computer and transferred the downloads to her computer using a USB flash drive.
