Program update AVG Free 8.0.135 - SP1
Improvements & fixes
Remake of internal communication to eliminate undesired program status appearance (hibernation, sleep mode, cold restart, ...).
Display of the system tray icon representing running scan (that can be paused or stopped from the context menu).
Added option to ignore the status of a component via context menu in the AVG main interface: the system tray icon then reports OK status even if a component is in error status.
System restore point is created before launching a program update.
Improved EML file processing including scanning of user mailboxes.
RAM requirements optimization.
New design of the system tray pop-up window, and more information provided.
Improved statistics of detected objects in Email Scanner and resident Shield.
To eliminate AVG collisions with OS, only minimum drivers are installed in safe mode; then it is possible to launch on-demand scanning from the command line only, and a new GUI dialog has been added to ease the scan configuration.

Added option of deleting the Resident Shield and Email Scanner history.
