Am on dial-up with Win XP O/S. The frequency depends on how often the e-mail client is set to check for mail. I do not know why you do not see the same but speculation is your high speed IT connection may be so fast that its hardly noticeable.
The popup does not bother me and lets me know its working. HTH
I was over at my sister's house yesterday doing the income tax thing online, and every few minutes the AVG Email Scanner would popup at the lower right end of the screen. She is on a dial up. I have the same AVG program on my cable modem and its rare that I see this pop up. Is there some setting I can adjust or maybe reinstall the program? She has an HP computer, Windows ME, and I plan on running all the antispyware and antivirus programs that she has, however in the past her computer has always been clean. She does very little surfing, just email and sometimes uses the word program. I seem to recall that when AVG first came out, we used to see this popup all the time and then maybe it got fixed.
Thanks for any advice.
