Got free avg also free zone alarm and adware se,after my computer was got at, I thought i would try some free downloads to see what was on the market.Do they put somthing in them to make it look as you have more virus then you have,so you will buy their product.Or if it is right, and i have that many why is mime not picking them up.
I can confirm AVG does not produce fake results with any version to try and make you buy it. Our top level of customer support and additional security offered by our commercial range is normally a good enough reason to buy, oh and topped off with our 2 year licensing policy offers extremely good value ;)
I have the same confusion as Hen Lady Although I have AVG on my computer, I get the same messages every time I log on a) Your computer is at risk b) Your virus protection is out of date How can this be ? There is no address or email to query it with AVG,
I am sure your virus killer is fine, the problem is why if they are working right do they pick up so few virus, and nothing from AVG, when i try new downloads, they are in the hundreds this can not be right. As i am a beginner how do i make sense of what is right or wrong.Even if they are free they should pickup more then 5 or 6.
With out seeing any scan results it is difficult to say. Please check where these 'detected' files are stored, maybe they are in the 'vault' of another product you installed or in an area you asked AVG not to scan (note AVG Resident Shield would stop them from running anyway). Also they could be objects that AVG Anti-Virus is not designed to scan for such as some spyware items which I recommend you try AVG Anti-Spyware.
