darling, my ex husband is an internet security expert - he works with the BKA to squirrel out peados - so I know how to protect my system and how systems can be hacked and he is always checking! And I have used Antivir for years - much better than AVG (and free too!). But thank you for your concern - unfortunately, that is not the answer to my weird problem. btw - I have no spam, no pop ups, no nothing. Only TES is ever weird.
