A great tool included by AVG Anti-Virus biggest frustration is automatically blocked files or partial files of a program(s) are not shown when AVG WatchDog Pop Up Window from sys tray pops up always leaving me wondering which 4 of the options should I select regarding whether the file/piartial file and/or program for that matter should be ignored and allowed to run at all times, allow to run once, bllock once, or block always. NEED MORE INFO REGARDING WATCHDOG PROMPT in order to make an educated decision on how to handle the file/program at that moment AND in the future!
