As a HALIFAX BANK on-line customer, I have enjoyed free PC-Cillin 2000 AV protection but apparently this is coming to its end of life and updates will no longer be available, so, I'm looking for a Free AV Download.
I've tried to download Grisoft AVG about 10 times over the last 3 days by filling in the 3 required fields (1st Name, 2nd Name & Email address) and accepting the "Agreement Terms". A window opens and tells me the data has been accepted and I will receive an authorising e- mail with further instructions (from AVG) but I just dont get an e-mail.
Does anyone know if AVG are having site trouble (unlikely and especially for 3 days I know!)or alternatively are there any other good freebies I could try compatible with :
Windows XPHE / AOL9 BBand / McAfee Personal Firewall
if you have a spam program installed then that may be detecting the AVG e-mail as spam. When i was trying to register with Macromedia, after several attempts i realised that all thier e-mails were going into the junk folder of my Yahoo account.
Yeah, I thought it had something to do with AOL's own Spam Filtering which is quite thorough so I have tried every which way to adjust it to make sure I’m getting all e-mails. Even to the point of blocking all except Grisoft and still I don’t get anything. I just don’t understand it.
Have messed with this problem and am sick of it so I’ll try your Avast suggestion.
