Just Cloud Malware?

There is stuff on my computer that I would grieve over if lost. A few years ago I bought space in the "cloud" from Just Cloud. All was well until I bought a new computer running Win7. Now, my AVG protection complains about Just Cloud being malware.

I tried re-installing Just Cloud. Downloaded the installation exe from their website. AVG persists in not liking it. Strongly objects. Does its thing. Just Cloud desktop icon goes generic in appearance, and reports that it isn't connected to anything.

What is going on here? I wouldn't mind using another cloud service.

Just Cloud looks legitimate to me. I would definitely try a better Anti Virus first. There are a number of paid, commercial anti virus suites that should work (Avast, Kaspersky, ESET, Symantec Corporate).

I am going to query Just Cloud about this. And maybe AVG.
Then get back to you.
