    AVG update breaks iTunes


    LOL Thanks AVG:
    recent AVG signature file update is incorrectly identifying iTunes/iPod files as viruses, as reported by forum users on the Apple website.

    The AVG Virus scanner identifies all iTunes/iPod related files as the 'Small.BOG' trojan - a trojan which does not seem to exist, as revealed by a quick Google search. The update, which is unidentified, but confirmed to be a false positive, is removing all files, and deleting them. Once these files have been "cleaned", iTunes will not run, and is not fixable by a reinstall.

    AVG is not good. Was using it with a legit key, then BOOM it says I'm using it with an illegal pirated key. WTF? Anyway, I'm now using MS Security Essentials which is Ace. Much better than onecare
