Prior to the AVG/Avast setup, it is recommended that you run a removal tool for other antivirus packages installed in the past.

just bought a license for Internet Security from serialcart for 7,21 euros. (all taxes included). it really is a good security product. tested the free version on my laptop, after i installed and liked what i saw on my mum`s laptop. the results were great. good detection rate, the IDP is just great, ransomware shield really does it`s job. thanks to you I trust and use avg once again. thanks again!

Unannounced AVG Improvement, that I discovered today:

Before, if Antivirus was turned off, Avast/AVG used to allow access to known infected programs/scripts, unless they contact a domain/IP already on blacklist.
I tested that today and AVG aborts ALL connections for infected programs/scripts. It can also trace the original source (in that case the script, not the interpreter).

It may have come after my feedback.

This is the alert:

It's not very important, but it's better to block infected programs from connecting to the internet.

That's some heady stuff you went through. Take care of yourself, my friend. We're thinking of you. 🙏
