AVG going nuts

Is anyone else experiencing a surge of AVG blocked websites tonight? I'm getting the At Risk message on about half the sites I'm attempting to view (including sites like Southwest Airlines, Yahoo News).

I'm not getting those particular messages, but I did have some AVG hiccups after all the Microsoft patches that came in yesterday on my desktop.

If you use IE..... and you keep getting messages that your PC is at risk....
and you get sent to a website that is tring to sell PRO Anti-virus.......
or some other scan and anti-virus software........

The message is getting more frequent. I googled and found a lot of folks using Mozilla are experiencing it today.

You guys should try Open DNS http://www.opendns.com/ make your web surfing safer. I use it and I find it helpful in staying away from Bad sites.

Yep, ran everything and no issues. No error messages since yesterday morning and the forums I've checked indicate others having the problem are A-OK now too. Guess there was a glitch somewhere and it's fixed.
