Ive just updated my AVG and all went well, I then ran my ad ware checker and windcleaner and found things in the registry relating to avg and one with no name on it, whats all that about Avg putting stuff thats classed as spyware and or invalid registry items?:confused:

It's more likely to be the spyware programs not being current and not recognizing the new version of AVG. Whenever I do an update of any program like that, even my Zone Alarm firewall pops up and thinks something new is trying to access the internet and requests my approval.
My spyware checkers are bang up to date, Ive removed the offending items, can always restore them, but everything working fine after I removed them so they are obviously not important or else AVG would have not worked.
