Web Sheild
« on: February 22, 2005, 04:53:17 PM »
I have 2 questions about Web Sheild.           1. What is Web Sheild and what dose it do .    2.  If I see in my log a (warning) that says (AAVM a error on a web page)  dose that mean there is a virus on my computer or is there a hacker coming in.    Sorry to ask these stupid questions but I am not computer literate like some people are.   Thanks for the help.

About the logs - can you please quote the message you found in the logs in its entirety?

I think the page might be mixed up.  The new features listed at

http://www.avast.com/eng/whats_new_in_avastve.html

is actually for Avast 4.5 not 4.6

Weird, I remember visiting this link yesterday and it had 4.6 info on it.
