AVG Will Not Be Recommended on This Site From Here Out !!!!

Postby JeanInMontana » Thu Feb 28, 2008 6:23 pm

:whp: AVG once a well respected and highly recommended program and company has gone the route of adding an unwanted toolbar on install. The Yahoo toolbar is checked to install with the default settings! No way will this site use or recommend any program using this sort of program using these tactics to enhance income.

This is getting worse there is no opt out of the toolbar. NONE. This is how malware works and low and behold, they use a location folder used by known rogues.

It's really sad. AVG was a well respected and widely recommended program It was my go to for logs to do HJT work. Then MBAM came out and of course being part of the team there I swapped to it and have no reason to want any other program. Sure glad Marcin et al got that out when they did.

Yeah a feature blocking bad sites is useful... an added tool bar is not! :whp:
