AVG 7

does any-one know whether there has there been a lowering of security in this programme. a flash offering avg 8 [paid one ] showed that 7 was covered for virus only. came off norton because of the probs it was causing. virus only cover is insufficient tho'.  any suggestions from any-oneHuh thanks  firefly2  Undecided

Re: AVG 7

AVG free as always only been anti-virus.
AVG have a new V8 products suite out (hence the pop-up) including anti-spam, anti-virus.

Re: AVG 7

What about PlusNets anti-spam filters? They are likely to do a better job than most of the paid for versions you can download. Unless you want more control over what happens.

Re: AVG 7

Hi, I used to use Norton Internet Security, but it used to run a little slow on my PC, so I had to remove it, but I now use Free ones like AVG, but in the last few months I had problums with virus passing tho AVG. so i now use one called comodo, it free and also comes with a lot of features like.
Firewall, AntiMalware, and some others. you may want to have a look.
I remmber about 12 years back when I first started to use the internet. all I had was a virus killer and that was it, was none of this torjans, and what nots that are out nowerdays.

Re: AVG 7

thankx Beng. will have a look at that then.  it really miffs me off that we have to go to such lengths to keep  fraudsters off our pc. think my son relies on avg and he does all sorts on his. afraid I am bit more cautious. my norton  360 made my pc slow  too. and it took over. firefly2  Smiley
