|I was working on an older PC and decided to try avg free on it. To my surprise, AVG loaded all kinds of MSN junk on it and YES, it still had to have scheduled scans...|
What happened after I had installed AVG, an MSN window came up asking me to set it up, which I refused to do but it wouldn't stop popping up. Also it started MSN messenger which I had disabled earlier.
So I decided to uninstall AVG and lo and behold, it wouldn't uninstall. So I went to the AVG site and used their uninstaller.
As soon as it was finished uninstalling, all things went back to normal and I installed Avast free, no scheduled scans and continuos free updates daily.
Now I KNOW the reason I quit using AVG years ago, that re-inforced my opinions.
Some HELP in posting on Computing.net plus free progs and instructions Cheers
