    I have got an error message on AVG 8 free edition interface to say the email scanner not fully functional.
    I have checked for updates and everything is up to date and all the other functions work.
    I presume it's something simple I have to do but I don't know how to fix this.

    I had AVG for years and ithink it was something to do with my firewall that stopped me from scanning emails.
    Another alternative is to change to Avast Home free.

    Thanks,
    Whatever the problem it has righted itself without any intervention from me so I will persevere with AVG which has served me well but will bear in mind Avast for the future.
    Cheers,

    sometimes all you need to do is reboot and avg will fix the problem.

    thanks golfer bob.
    That's useful to know.
    It probably righted itself on the next reboot.
    Next time I will try a reboot straightaway if I get a problem.
    Regards.
