AVG 8 LinkScanner

While I'm on the subject of AVG 8 this one has been bugging me for a while now. If you don't want AVG 8 LinkScanner putting annoying little green stars next to your web search results then you can disable the LinkScanner component in the AVG UI. However this causes AVG to show you a nice big error icon in the systray area.

I spent ages trying to stop it from doing this when AVG 8 first came out but couldn't find an option anywhere. Looks like a recent update has resolved this as you can now right click on the LinkScanner component and select the 'Ignore component state' option to stop AVG reporting the fact that you've disabled it as an error!
