I have it installed on my personal PC, and there's just a single 
checkbox (that is set by default) for "Use Heuristics" -- no slider or 
other settings.

If you happen to also have "Automatically heal/remove infected files", 
then CVSNT (or CVS Suite / components of WinCVS / components of 
TortoiseCVS) just disappears.

The workaround is to either disable heuristics or add CVSNT / CVS Suite 
/ TortoiseCVS / etc. to the "exclude" list.  Hopefully the vendor will 
correct the problem with their scanner.

I did report the issue, but it would be helpful if other licensed AVG 
users reported as well so they can get a more accurate priority for 
correcting the problem.
