    My updated AVG Virus Protection insists on placing an icon on the desktop with each update check and I don't see an option:confused:confused to prevent this. I use Vista on my PC. Suggestions?

    The icon, that's just a shortcut - if it's bothering you, simply delete it. You still will be able to control the program with either the system tray icon or from the start menu.
    Otherwise, I think (can't remember for sure) there was an option upon installation to
    choose which icons you want installed and by default the desktop shortcut was checked. There is no way of going back to that, short of uninstalling and reinstalling
    the program and paying attention.

    Thanks for the response. After the third daily update the icon no longer re-plants itself on the desktop. I'm glad, It was a pain to keep deleting it. Again, thanks!
