Unwanted Attachments - AVG Certification delivered as attachment rather than in body of message.

Anyone know the cause or have quick settings fix:

I have a user, Vista w/Office 2008 over Exchange 2003 (SBS 2003), who's AVG 8.0 security certification is showing up as an attachment in all of his incoming mail rather than in the body of the e-mail as it should.

The attachment is a txt file and reads:

"No virus found in this incoming message.
Checked by AVG - www.avg.com 
Version: 8.0.238 / Virus Database: 270.12.19/2099 - Release Date: 05/05/09 13:07:00"

This makes it impossible for him to sort or discern messages from clients/partners that have sent him product info, catalogue photos, etc.

Why has this changed as nothing but MS updates have been applied to Outlook, Office and Exchange and what can I do to prevent it?

Thx,
-MP

Open the AVG control center, select the email scanning feature, click
Properties and remove the certification.

I think this might be the answer
