I have been an AVG fanboy for over 6 years now and have recommended them to anyone who would listen, but last month I changed my mind, and now I tell everyone to uninstall them and find something new.
It all started one morning, you see... I run my pc 24/7 and my AV starts scanning my PC at 3:00am and is usually finished when I get up, and every morning I check my quarrantine to see if anything I collected from the previous day was infected. I do check things as they come in but this is a backup check and of course there are always new definitions to run.
This particular morning I was suprised to find about 5 keygens, all by BRD in my quarrantine. I was suspicious because they are older and have been scanned time and again, so I scanned them with A-Squared free and they came up clean so I bundled all the apps together and put there keys in a pass protected rar to prevent further AVG harrasment. A few days went by and there are several new keys in quarrantine, this time all of them by ZWT and after scanning with A-Squared I got mad because now I know whats going on. Grisoft is targeting keygens on my PC and tagging them as having trojans when they don't and hoping I won't notice so when the quarrantine time is up they will be deleted.
Next was NEO then NoPE and others as well, but from that point on I can't tell you who was next because I uninstalled AVG and installed a new anti-virus. I will probably never go back to using Grisoft software, I can never trust them again to have the run of my PC. What their doing is both deceptive and criminal in away. A keygen is what is called riskware, they have been known to be infected, but I don't need big brother snooping around my machine telling me what I can and can't do.
So you AVG users beware, you have been warned. Have you looked in your quarrantine lately? Grisoft won't put up a flag to warn you, its quarrantine only lasts 30 days and it starts deleting stuff, its about to ruin your day.
