Have read often of your recommendation for AVG. I had it years ago and then a computer guy put Kaspersky on instead.
My subscription is up in about 10 days and would like to switch back to AVG, but wondered if it checks emails for viruses? I checked online, and it didn’t seem like it did.
What have you found to cover email? I use Mozilla Thunderbird.
Thanks for any help you can give on this! Ann C.
Thank you for your question! I am always glad when people carefully investigate what a program will do for them before they depend on it to keep their computer safe.
AVG Internet Security does include an email scanner. Here is the description from their website:
“AVG Email Scanner
AVG E-mail Scanner checks attachments and links sent in emails for threats so that they don’t arrive in your inbox and cause damage. AVG E-mail scanner works as a plug-in for email applications – including Microsoft Outlook 2010 – or as a personal e-mail scanner on accounts that use POP3 and SMTP.”
I hope this helps you make your decision, and if you do decide to purchase AVG, I would really appreciate it if you used the link on my website. The small commission helps to pay my bills. 🙂
