=======Exact verbiage END=====================
That link takes you to: http://www.avg.com/us-en/qts-sw-ppc?ctype=ppc_us_gs_0010
AVG logo on that download page of avgqts.exe
But from your site www.AVG.com home, I find no mention of Quick Threat Scan or its .exe
Searched AVG site for it to no avail.
======= MAIN PROBLEM===================================
I had emails sent from my HOTMAIL acct NOT initiated by me to my entire addrbook.
I only became aware of this when I got several UNDELIVERABLE NOTIFICATIONS (fr old email addresses in my book) and then saw the verbiage of suspect emails. They included odd characters and symbols which changed in successive emails such as SUBJ: <symbol symbol> Beautiful store <character character> The grammar was horrific, the content poorly written as if originating from a non-English speaking nation. The attachment ended in "mht". I did NOT click on the link or the attachment in these returned emails.
I ran free AVG full scan
It took hours and showed 0 INFECTIONS
I then ran Microsoft’s FREE PC SCAN, Full Version Scan (Protection, Clean Up, Tune Up)
Microsoft's scan located INFECTIONS:
win32/Exact.B (4 items -HIGH)
win32/Exact.I (4 items -HIGH)
win32/Clariagain (3 items -MED)
which it could NOT remove in clean up portion of scan
