Help Sought: When Using Mozilla Firefox AVG Reports Virus

    Has anybody come across the following problem?

    AVG Free Edition (Virus Database: 491 Release Date: 11th August, 2004)
    reports that the computer could be infected by a virus - JS/Fortnight
    in \Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\Default.A4E\Bookmarks.html

    I've deleted the Bookmarks.html and set it up again but the same
    problem occurs. I've used several anti virus and malware programs
    which report nothing there to worry about.

    Is this overprotective AVG or a problem with Firefox? Any ideas?
    Please advise?

  2. I use AVG and have the same definitions file as you. I've not
    experienced any problem. (Tried, and couldn't duplicate what
    you're experiencing. Running w2k.)

    As a follow up to this strange little problem, I've discovered that
    if I un select the "Check Macro Viruses" then I don't get AVG telling
    me there's a problem with JS/Fortnight. (Running Window$ 98)
