I downloaded and installed this on a spare machine in my network, just to have a look at it. I have one curious issue, which maybe is normal. On every drive that has been scanned, there is a AVG6DB_F.DAT file. This appears to vary in size, based on the number of files on the volume, so I'm assuming it's some sort of index or what? :confused: Does anyone know what the purpose of these files are? I didn't see anything in their FAQ for the program on the website.

I've noticed that too awhile back. I initially thought it was a mis-directed download file, as my system had re-booted during a scan after an update download. While trying to figure out what happened, I thought the file looked out of place and deleted it. Since then I see that the file is created during a scan. Not sure what it is myself. :)

It's a log of what's scanned and any problems or errors

If you don't want it,untick the event write to log file on resident shield in AVG control panel
