MC hang with AVG antivirus
« on: February 11, 2014, 22:47:37 »
Hi,
I confirmed that MC hangs if I right click a file/folder while using MC compatibility mode with Windows Explorer having AVG Antivirus free edition running.
It happened before, so I uninstalled AVG and tried Bit defender (also free) and it was OK. Returning to AVG hangs again. I hope this is usefull in some way.

Don't think there is much MC can do about that since I can not control what AVG does.
When showing the right click menu (context menu) all installed shell extensions get loaded into the MC process. And a lot of bad shell extensions do not like it when somebody else then WinExplorer calls them.

What version of AVG is it ? and what OS and Platform version ?

Avg is the latest version, Windows Vista Home premium.
