Facebook message about Spam

Don't forget to share

After a recent AVG update I noticed that when I was posting a link on Facebook, occasionally this message came up…..

You appear to be using a browser plug-in that attaches spam to your Facebook posts. To complete your post, please remove this browser plug-in or switch to a different computer. 

For more information, please see the Help Centre.

This is all due to AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition 2011 

to stop this ….

1)  Open AVG Anti-Virus  –  Click Components on the top bar next to file. 

2) Click Linkscanner – and then Tools/Advanced Settings. 

3) Uncheck – Add ‘Secured by LinkScanner’ to any send Facebook or MySpace message checked by LinkScanner


Hope this helped 🙂
