    Hope this is in the correct forum:)

    I ran a full scan on my machine now that it has a new Duron mainboard installed, but it is being reported as a Pentium III (which is what was in the machine previously). The following is the report from the scan - there were no virii found.

    Warnings in report:
    [X] Access denied/file locked
    [X] Wrong file size in directory
    [X] Wrong creation time in directory
    [ ] COM file is too large
    [X] Invalid start address
    [X] Invalid EXE header
    [X] Possibly damaged

    Do I need to "worry" about any of the above warnings.

    No need to worry much, but you should uninstall AVg and reinstall.
    AVg won't recognise your new hardware until it has been reinstalled
