    Under options, my AVG interface only shows “Scan Computer” and nothing else. I am using the free version of AVG 2015

    This hellish software destroyed Photoshop 7.0 and a few other apps I no longer have installation CDs for. It failed to “restore” with some bullshit notice, but I would very much like to find the actual FOLDER on the FILE SYSTEM where my software may yet BE. Any ideas?
