AVG Popup Ads
« on: June 26, 2010, 09:43:13 PM »
What's up with AVG (Free) popping up an advertisement every single day nagging me to upgrade to the paid version?

I think it's about time to uninstall. Who needs an anti-virus program anyway?

they used to be quite decent, i hope they haven't stooped to pushing their anti-malware suite down the users' throat. fwiw, MSE is a much better option for me nowadays.

The one good thing about the AV & security software market is that there are plenty of options to choose from if you grow disillusioned with what you are currently using.

Well, it seems that the day after I decided to uninstall AVG it stopped popping up the ad every day. It's still installed on my netbook and I'm not getting the popup anymore.

Oh well.
