Trojan and no action >:(dochockin11/08/2008 - 12:01


So... I paid for Goo last night after reading the glowing reviews...

I've downloaded the executable.  My AVG is sensing it as a Trojan.  I've tried to ignore that and install anyways, and when I click on the executable... nothing happens...

I didn't just get suckered out of 20 bucks did I?

Well it seems to no longer be a Trojan and it now works... Sweet!

First two levels were great!  I love the gravity effect on the bridge... anyhoo back to the game!

I've got just the same problem but it hasn't fixed itself. I ignore the AVG alert, or switch off AVG altogether, but nothing at all happens. There's no error message or anything, just a second of hourglass and then no activity.  Any ideas please?

thanks, Rob

ditch AVG & go to avast! (! is part of the name).  I've had less issues with it, no false-positives, better updates, easier to use, more features.

I uninstalled AVG completely and it worked. Thanks for help.
