Avg antivirus updating
What a joke of a company and a giant waste of my time. When I moved to France, I decided to upgrade on general principles - it seemed as though I was moving closer to known bad guys and I would be depending on my ability to use my laptop for work and to communicate with family and friends.

They were RUDE, Condescending, Easter European ** who now have a taste of democracy. They could not and never did cancel the one month account that was now going on 3 months.

They were laughing, rude and were not even listening to what me or my wife has to say. We called Discover who immediately cancelled all future payments and changed the card Number. I have not even tried to delete it yet but I hear it is a Nightmare and there is no UN-install programs.As a customer of their anti-virus suite, I even contacted customer service and complained, saying that I was mad enough not to renew my anti-virus with them unless they stopped the pop ups. Not knowing all the details I then got a 1 year virus subscription to AVG (Stupid me AVAST??? AND THE WORST PART is 1-2 months after I used a credit card to sign up for this Communist service I have had 2 separate credit cards used without my knowledge.Must Read: How to Install AVG 2016 without Zen or AVG Protection?AVG Zen Dashboard: Manage all your devices from a single screen Remote Protection: Scan& Remove PC viruses using your mobile.
