"This software is garbage!"

August 30, 2012  |  By pl6306

 |  Version: AVG Internet Security 2012 2012.0.2197

Pros

There is nothing good about this!

Cons

Force installs on to your computer by piggy backing some other piece of useful software. This is an under handed way of gaining market share. Automatically changes your browser settings. If this isn't malware then I don't know what is.

"This product makes aggressive changes to your computer."

July 18, 2012  |  By jimsuhy

 |  Version: AVG Internet Security 2012 2012.0.2197

Pros

none that I see

Cons

It aggressively changes your settings to your computer. When you uninstall it messes up your IE browser and when you call them. They don't know.

Summary

Terrible software that does harm to your computer. Damages your installed software and changes your environment. It's more like a virus.
