and should be no cause for concern. I use Outlook Express and have the same paper clip. My understanding is AVG considers the confirmation added to the message by AVG as an attachment.
Hope this helps.
I just installed AVG free. Now my Win XP Pro Outlook Express has a paperclip symbol next to each new e-mail, even if the e-mail contains no attachment. This is not so much a bother as a worry. I'm concerned something is wrong and my antivirus protection is compromised. Any comments, suggestions? AVG free offers no tech help beyond their FAQ.
