AVG GOES FROM VIRUS PROTECTION TO VIRUS

December 1st, 2012 · No Comments · Technology

AVG goes from Virus Protection to Virus.

It sucks to be number 2 – thanks to AVAST.

Just like like Mozilla Firefox which at one time was a terrific browser, AVG which was at one time the free virus anti-protection software of choice has stooped to nefarious business practices to make a buck.

Firefox became unusable due to the amount of add-ons which parent company Mozilla kept piling on, it got so bad that each time I opened Firefox I had to wait on massive updates to finish completing. Then I discovered Chrome and never looked back.

Similarly AVG decided to stick a search toolbar that took me weeks to figure out how to remove.

There is no question that the money is in the Data. Unfortunately AVG and Firefox are programs which now both rely on embedding unwanted malware and foistware onto your computer, rearranging your computer’s registry and slowing it down in order to make a buck.

But you don’t have to take my word for it. Click on the AVG IS A VIRUS icon below and check out why someone else “kicked AVG out of their computer.”
