    I just uninstalled Norton and installed AVG.

    AVG says that the next tests and updates will be on 12/21 at 8AM. Does that mean I need to be sure my computer is online then, or, if it is not, will the tests and updates take place when I do go online after that time?

    AVG says about the rescue disk that it "enables you to scan and clean files on your computer in MS-DOS mode (at the command prompt). This is often necessary when removing virsues on computers which have sharing violations or insufficient user access rights. It is also useful when your computer's system areas have become infected."

    My computer doesn't share with any other computer and I guess I have all the user access rights available. I presume that if my antivirus programs work right I don't have to worry about the system areas becoming infected.

    So my impression is that, while there may be some remote chance of needing the rescue disk, it is indeed remote. Am I wrong about that?

    The rescue disk program says the disk should be updated whenever AVG is updated. That seems like a lot of trouble. That's why the question above.

    Thanks, grandpaw7
