AVG - Rogue Download of AVG Anti Virus FREE

  John Salfinger 14:05 15 Mar 2018

I have purchased a new licence key to reactivate my "AVG Internet Security" 5th March 2018. (somehow AVG has secretly replaced my "AVG Internet Security" programme with the degraded "AVG Anti Virus FREE" ) now this rogue "AVG Anti Virus FREE" is blocking activation of my original programme - and the AVG Antivirus FREE is trying to force me to buy a new licence for a second time. How do I get rid of this rogue FREE version and revert to my original AVG Internet Security programme ? I Need Help Please. Many Thanks John Salfinger

You have been conned and probably compromised.

Cancel all your Credit Cards and Bank Cards

Close Down > disconnect > delete AVG Free > run CCleaner > run Malwarebytes.

Prepare to change "all" your passwords.

Go back on line with Windows Defender running and download an Antivirus from its proper site ? then change every password that you have
