This was in response to a statement that the AV configuration couldn't 
be changed, even to the point of removing directories.

At that point the remaining choice is to not use CVSNT.

It's long been the policy that bug reports won't be treated seriously 
unless they can be repeated on a machine without any AV installed.

Commercial support has different rules, but that's what they're paying 
for.  Someone would probably go down to their office and try to 
replicate the problem in situ... free support simply doesn't go that far.

I've had no issues with AVG6 - works quite well.
