    I have a start up entry called ROC_ROC_JAN2013_AV with the publisher listed as AVG Technologies (I do use AVG Free).
    Also in task scheduler there is this entry "ROC_REG_JAN_DELETE AVG Technologies C:\ProgramData\AVG January 2013 Campaign\ROC.exe /DELETE_FROM_SYSTEM=1"

    Does this sound like some kinda virus/malware or is it a legit part of AVG?
    A quick google search turned up nothing.

    thanks

    Yeah me too I'm using internet security and it was asking if i should let it past the firewall and didn't however everything seems fine but I also use a firefox addon called browser protect and the AVG search bar was acting weird so maybe its an update that has faulty coding or something but it's something AVG need to check I'll tell you if anything else happens but I doubt we are the only ones with this.
