    "Nightmare!"

    May 3, 2013  |   By Spaz888

    Pros

    After trying to remove I find there are no pros.

    Cons

    Can't uninstall! I have tried for 4 hours and still on my machine. I have tried 3 times from control panel. I have used the AVG removal tool over 10 times(lost count). I was on the phone with support for almost an hour and she told me to do the same thing over again and use four different tools, it is still on my machine. But she did tell me several times how easy it was to uninstall. Maybe a language barrier.
    After she was tired of dealing with it she told me she would e-mail me a way that would get it off of my machine manually. Or I could pay 14.95 to have them remove it. Oh, and the e-mail she sent, had a link to the tool she had been having me use. Nothing else.
    I don't have a recovery disc so I guess I will end up having to pay $14.95 to get it off of my machine. I guess since their nag screen for me to upgrade everytime I got on the computer didn't work they figured this would. This is a pitiful way to make money, but I guess it works for them. You pay one way or another.

    Summary

    They could not run fast enough for me to put any of there products on my machine.
    If you don't believe me, just google it or check avg forums. There are complaints everywhere.
    This company failed miserably.
