Dear Computer Lady,
Can you tell me the hazards of subscribing to AVG 2014?
So far I have been satisfied with my regular AVG Free Scan. I am just wary nowadays that something will be “slipped in” on me when I let down my guard!! (Such as the tool bar they talk about installing!!)
Thank you in advance for your help! Dolly
I don’t know if there are any “hazards” to subscribing to AVG Internet Security 2014… However, I do know that your computer will have better protection against more kinds of threats than it will have with just the free version of AVG.
As for something being slipped in when you install it, just make sure you read each dialog box as you install the program, and remove check marks for anything that you don’t want installed. AVG does have its own toolbar, and its own secure search setting, but it is totally up to you if you want to install those features when you install the program.
Here are some things that I do know will be better for your computer when you install AVG Internet Security 2014.
It will check files before you download them to ensure they are safe, and protect you as you exchange files using MSN and Yahoo! and ICQ.
AVG Internet Security encrypts and stores your valuable documents, pictures or any other files onto a password protected virtual disk on your PC. You can use Windows Explorer to move files into your Data Safe and open them just like any other disk.
AVG Internet Security 2014 will warn you of potential scams, and block spam. It also helps block hackers, makes your banking and shopping safer, and protects your personal data.
Just this week, AVG Internet Security 2014 stopped me from accessing a website that was infected with two viruses.
It’s Your Turn: What do you think?
