Avg app

Recommended Posts

I run AVG anti virus software, which is not a problem, but recently I keep getting pop ups trying to flog me an AVG clean up pc app. And now I have one on the screen which I can't get rid of. It's not causing any problems but it's very annoying. I am using W10. Any help in zapping this would be appreciated.

I have a similar irritation with Avast free AV software....

Interesting isn't it? Antivirus software is infecting our computers with software that wants us to buy more or experience ads...is that a virus , a bacterium or a parasite?

I've only used the inbuilt windows defender for years, if the PC is used by several people who might do dodgy downloads or click dodgy links something more might be wise.
Chrome at least is also pretty good at flagging or blocking any page which is likely to try sneaky scripts.
I do have Malwarebytes free installed which is run periodically or if something made me uneasy.
