AVG Detection keeps popping up

  1. As of today, my AVG (2012 internet security, paid version) keeps popping up because of some detection thing.

    I have searched my system and couldn't find the file. also ran both an AVG and a McAfee full system scan, and no threats were found.

    I have installed Windows 8 Pro x64 yesterday, clean install from a legal windows disk, the only things I have from my old system are some pictures and files for school.

    Is there any way for me to fix this? because I'm concerned for my system's health and the popups are very obnoxious (let's just say about 3 popups every minute..)

    Thank you.

    I might have fixed it, seemed some downloader for a file I never downloaded was running in the background. disabled and deleted it. Not sure yet, will update tomorrow.
