    How to run AVG antivirus on windows powered Toshiba notebook?

    I have recently installed an AVG antivirus to safe guard my windows powered Toshiba notebook from virus attacks. I have transferred certain data via pen drive on to my system and I have a doubt on whether there is any virus threat. How can I run the AVG antivirus to fix the virus if any?

    Hello friend,


    I have the solution for your problem just do as i say............

    Method-1.

    1.Firstly you insert the pen drive.

    2.Then you open the Antivirus software.

    3.Then you go to the option 'Custom Scan' and select the drive in which pen drive is inserted.

    4.Then the antivirus will scan it and clean that pendrive if it has any virus affected files.

    Method-2.

    1.Firstly you insert the pen drive into your computer.

    2.Then you go to the 'My Computer'.

    3.Then make a right click on 'Pen drive'.

    4.Then click on 'Scan with AVG antivirus'.

    5.Now the pen drive scanning will start and you can clean the affected files.

    Have a nice day............

    Hi,

    If already installed you can use it to scan fixed as well as portable drives by the antivirus.

    Click on the Antivirus from the desktop icon or select it from the start menu.

    In the following screen you will be offered the drives to be scanned , select your USB drive.

    Click scan.

    this will direct Antivirus to take adequate action to scan and later clean the media you intend to clean.

    Thanks.
