    "Didn't work when it needed to"

    July 27, 2011  |   By Derty_Ernie


    Its free. If it worked that would be a steel. It cannot stop Malware so be carefull. It basically removes cookies is all it does.


    Doesn't have ability to stop Malware and Trojan horses before they are loaded on computer.


    Use at your own risk. The pro version wasn't any better. If you do Twitter or Facebook your exposed.

    Hello Derty_Ernie,

    Unfortunately, no security solution can provide with 100% detection rate.
    Our virus lab specialists are working 24/7 to ensure that the database is as up to date as possible.

    We would like to kindly ask you to provide us with any undetected files as described here:

    If you would like to discuss this issue further, please visit CNET AVG Forums or AVG Free Forums.

    Thank you.
