I have not had any on the two PCs I have with AVG 8.5 - but that could be related to what I do/do not do on the internet.
If you are concerned about your installation, it is easy to download another copy of AVG, uninstall your current copy and reinstall.

==========================================

Gordon: Thank you very much for responding to my Post.

Have had the same basic installation of AVG Free since 7.5 which I updated to 8 and then to 8.5. Has been operating very well until yesterday. Now on entering any site AVG may - or may not - advise me that it is a well known phishing site which may steal my identity...

Certainly like the security but even trying to open my own original post here I received such a notification so obviously something has happened to change my program. I thought that perhaps AVG, in their recent update, had transmitted something faulty but such would cause problems for everyone using AVG 8.5 Free and such does not seem to be the case. So on the chance that something has become corrupted I will remove and reinstall and see what happens.

I thank you very much for taking the time to respond to my inquiry. Most appreciated I assure you.
