AVG no longer works for any version of LW. I guess the AVG company broke the links to the LW program after the LW company was closed.

Two choices. One is to go to LW's settings & choose to disable AVG. ie: LW's menu bar, Tools -> Options -> Transfers, Downloads, disable Scan files I download for viruses.

Else see below.

My recommendation would be to use File_Girl's LW Pirate Edition (LPE) http://www.gnutellaforums.com/gettin...tml#post359817. She removed the AVG so no problems in that regard.
You will find LPE runs about the same as LW Pro.

If you are using Windows 7 or higher, best to right-click both the LPE & Java installers & choose 'Run as Administrator'. (This can also help for Vista.)

If any issues running the program, probably best to delete the LW preferences folder; http://www.gnutellaforums.com/window...tml#post344686
