    "Do Not Use becuase of DO-Not-Track software."

    September 23, 2012  |   By taylor1277

    Pros

    NONE NONE NONE

    Cons

    AVG Free isnt free anymore,you will notice that they will not leave you the option of downloading DO-NOT-TRACK thats because they have found a way to stop everyone else from seeing your internet tracking movements and then they can see your movements and sell them.It is a good idea if you are an antivirus company and can stop others from gaining that information,it would be like Microsoft blocking every programmer from using programs on their systems,it isnt allowed.but somehow AVG gets away with this.Also you can no longer believe what you see on Cnet,Cnet will tell you about any program they can,if i opened a website and got 1.00 each time someone downloaded a program i would be a millionaire.Trying to enlighten you to this.So if they really want your business wait till they give you the option of not downloading DO-NOT-TRACK

    Summary

    then you will see that AVG isnt tracking your internet movements,lets see am I bluffing and i dont know what i am talking about,or will AVG release an option for opting out of DO-NOT-TRACK.Also goes for Advanced SystemCare 5 too,what out for this program too,they get you to change taskbar settings and then you cant change them back unless you unistall the program and then it takes with it vital parts of files it shares.

    Hi if you do not want the Do-Not-Track than do not install the Linkscanner, and you can still install the AVG antivirus.
