Malware-Virus Prevention

Things I Do Not Like – AVG

I have decided to make this a semi – regular column and first cab off the rank is AVG.

I have found this to be of little to no use on many systems , it appears to do little to prevent infections , wants to install other add-ons which will promise to ” tune up ” your system and when removed the computer usually runs faster and ” issues” disappear.

To remove AVG use the AVG Removal Tool , do not try and remove it through the Control Panel as AVG does not want to be removed , that should be your first clue.

Remember you do need an antivirus – Windows 10 – Windows 8 users – Defender does a great job
