If you use AVG anti-virus software, which many of our clients do, you may have noticed a new pop-up that looks something like this. It’s advertising a free upgrade to AVG Anti-Virus Free 2011 or a paid upgrade to AVG Internet Security 2012. Either one is fine and you can feel free to click the link, which should take you toAVG.com.
The free version protects against:
- Viruses and spyware
- Social networks like Facebook
- Web surfing and searching
- Losing your identity online
We’re currently recommending Microsoft Security Essentials to our clients.
