    "I use to like this program..."

    December 14, 2009  |   By leffnersteve


    The con issue below far out weights and pros, this use to be a helpful program... AVOID this version of it you can not shut it off easily.


    No program shut down. Cant exit tray icon or shut off AVG, now it has to to run all the time in the back ground and you can only manually disable certain features, it really sucks, this new version is terrible and I uninstalled it.

    Terrible, no way to shut it off, this use to be a great back-up to avast but now they are manipulating it so you can not shut it down easily and are stuck with a tray icon and having to manually disable the program. I urge you to let them know that they are ruining what was a great product.
