Who could ever imagine something like that happening...The brand AVG comes from Grisoft's first product, "Anti-Virus Guard", launched in 1992 in Czech Republic.12,145804,backpage=5,sv=*****The program update includes: Program update AVG Free 8.0 169Improvements Added new contacts Improved parsing of Google advertising URLs Implemented detection of newer version of Opera cookie Implemented AVG Toolbar compatibility with Firefox 3.0.1. I am trying to update the license which has expired.In 1997, the first AVG licenses were sold in Germany and UK.AVG Technologies acquired Exploit Prevention Labs (XPL) in December 2007, and incorporated that company's Link Scanner safe search and surf technology into the AVG 8.0 security product range released in March 2008.Even if I do a scan, it keeps saying Last Scan: Never.In January 2009, AVG Technologies acquired Sana Security, a developer of identity theft prevention software.
I recall reading about this over 2 weeks ago thought the problem had corrected itself. I did go to the AVG forum(website) but it's all too tech speak for my understanding.But I will definitely not renew my subscription when it comes time for that, the way the software is now.With no warning, it was installed, and there are no instructions for how to use it.The first time a tried to do it, it came up with a message saying that there was a bad image in the win32or something. They told me to write in update source page in menu. As a matter of fact as time passed after the installation of Kaspersky, it started to take a toll on my ram usage but Norton remained constant with it's good performance so eat your own words and do some research on your own before you jump on the band wagon of these marketing gimmicks fanboy. I think I may try Trend Micro or some other software once my licence expires in 382 days.I thought it might be conflicting with AVG free, so i removed that and tried to do it again, but it goes no further than %2 Should i just forget about kaspersky and get Norton or one of the free internet security programs? I do need a qood internet security software as I do internet banking all the time and do a lot of downloading too. Norton goes beyond the call of duty and tries to erase any file with a suspicious name. As far as the comment goes that Norton detects suspicious files and erase threats, isn't erasing threats the job of an antivirus?
