Program update AVG 8.0.138

AVG Search-Shield component modification

AVG Search-Shield component was modified so that it marks known bad sites only. It now does not scan immediately each search result online for new exploits. Full protection against exploits is still available through the AVG Active Surf-Shield component, that checks pages as they are visited. This will minimize the web traffic when searching on Google, Yahoo! and MSN Live Search.
