    "Reply to spammers on this board"

    August 11, 2007  |   By TBolt


    While I won't sit here and praise AVG Free Edition like it's the best thing since sliced bread, I have to say that the nerds that are spamming this board with hate messages about the software are just as bad as anyone at Grisoft who may be writing positive reviews. AVG Free Edition is installed on a desktop that my work provided, and - contrary to what the nerds here are saying - the software does have an e-mail scanner for MS Outlook. The default settings have to be adjusted in order to avoid daily scans. The software isn't a resource hog. All-in-all, I don't see what these guys are complaining about. For the cost (free), I don't see it as bad software. I have Avast free edition on my own desktop, and a virus has infected my system. I'm using Norton's online scanner as I type this...I hope it finds the bug.


    You get what you pay for. Free AVG or Free Avast--user beware.
