** Strange AVG file names **
Several users were confused by strangely named AVG files, mostly the "ROC_JAN2013_TB.exe" file lately. If unsure about a certain file, we recommend checking its digital signature as follows (screenshot): - Right-click the respective file and select Properties from the context menu. - Switch to the Digital Signatures tab. - Verify that the file is signed by trusted authority. If unsure about an unsigned suspicious file, please send it to our virus specialists for analysis as described in the What to do when I suspect any file it is infected? article.

While the slowdown is not apparent on new computers, it may be noticeable on slightly older systems. We have summarized basic recommendations and useful tips in the How to solve slowdown after installation of AVG article.
