    Same guy as the sygate question

    just wondering - does AVG actively protect against viruses (like Norton Control center?)

    Also, does it scan for adware & spyware?

    Thanks AGAIN
    (you guys r the best )

    I tried jumping on the AVG bandwagon before...................problem is it turned into an email server.

    I like control over my software. I don't care what it is. It needs to say it is what it was when I first installed it. And it did'nt. It changed not only versions, but a whole nother product as well. WITHOUT MY EXPLICIT CONSENT.

    That's why I'm opensource.

    I'm shocked :eek: that the CEO of avg didn't send you a email alerting you that your pirated copy of their AV was changing names

    Don't trust the free version - I had three trojans on my system that it didn't spot, even with updates and regular scans. I knew they were there because of my firewall alerts, but that dumb piece of shit prog was completely oblivious. Norton kicked their asses as soon as I installed it. It's worth paying out to get a decent antivirus prog - money well spent.
