Advanced Tip

All people that used AVG for long time, should be really bored with the "Scan with AVG" Context Menu. Actually, it's easy to change it into other text such as "Scan it up now!", "Scan with My Antivirus", etc. Just follow these tutorial

1. Open Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0
2. Choose "Standard EXE"
3. Make a new module named "regAccess"
4. Type these codes into the regAccess Module:

Public Sub RegString(Path As String, Val As String)
Dim reg As Variant
Set reg = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
reg.RegWrite Path, Val, "REG_SZ"
End Sub

Public Function RegGet(Path As String) As String
Dim reg As Variant
Set reg = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
RegGet = reg.RegRead(Path)
End Function

5. Now, on the Form1, create 1 new button and 1 new Textbox. Then enter these codes on the Form:

Private Form_Load()
Text1.Text = RegGet "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths\AVGSE.DLL"
End Sub

Private Command1_Click()
On Error GoTo errHandler
RegString "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths\AVGSE.DLL\Menu1"
MsgBox "Success"
Exit Sub
MsgBox "Cannot write to the registry. Maybe this program doesn't have permission to access the registry"
End Sub

6. Now, test it out! You should see current Context Menu on the Text1. Change it and press the Command1. Now, right click on a file. There aren't any "Scan with AVG" anymore, but the text that you've entered. Click it and AVG will start scanning the file(s)

That's all lol!
