I am still impressed with AVG 8 but just noticed false detections.

Virus detected Worm/Generic.IMQ

Gave this message on DivX player that I had downloaded from divx.com

Anyone else noticed anything ?

Yeah AVG8 detected something in some Iobit s/w. Funny that though as it comes from th esame company. Also noticed that it failed to pick up stuff that was detected by ZoneAlrarm's virus checker. The daily scan, which slows down PC's, can be turned off now though. Have'nt seen any problems with downloads for AVG8.
