    Does using a anti virus web shield make a VPN worthless? The privacy statements from AV companies are convoluted legalese and not much help. I don't know what's stopping the AV company from recording all internet activity.

    If you don't trust your av then remove it:D or use an av with good privacy(smth like F-secure)!even if you disable the web protection the av can access the cookies or browser history because they are saved on hard disk .av can access the whole harddisk:p anyway I will not disable the web protection!not worth it!
