    "Happy until today"

    May 3, 2013  |   By cnetisstartingtosuck

    Pros

    very light
    out of the way
    free
    comprehensive

    Cons

    none until today

    Summary

    I open my browser today, type a search word in the browser bar, and I get a page called AVG Search modeled to look just like google.

    AVG Changed the search feature on ALL MY BROWSERS to their search website WITHOUT MY PERMISSION.

    Needless to say I was furious.

    AVG has always been my go-to anti-virus because of its overwhelming qualities, but today I was sorely disappointed. Be suspicious and look into other anti-virus software.
