Windows 7: AVG Install Error

30 Oct 2010   #31

Win 7 Ultimate 32bit

I'm sorry JMH, that is based off of experience with fixing many many PC's with AVG installed.
Many of them have AVG installed with mass infections and AVG running a scan doesn't even detect them.
Then scan with an online scanner and AVG then pops up and says "You are infected". After the online scanner finds the infection first. I have seen this far too many times to not say AVG is garbage.

I fully and wholeheartedly stand by my statement, not only on Personal Opinion but based on facts that AVG fails in many ways.

Also,, this has nothing to do with fanboism. I would also recommend Avast over AVG.
But recommend MSE over Avast.

That is for freebees.
For payware, I would recommend NOD32, however, I have personal issues with them. The product is good.

It is not necessarily fanboism. We see plenty of BSOD's caused by AVG. I ran it on my system for seven months and never had the first problem with it. But I am one who consistently recommends MSE when a person is having computer problems. I know MSE runs smoothly with Windows 7. The idea is to eliminate a potential problem. I am running Avast currently with no problems with it.

Arch Linux 64-bit

Tepid, did most of those machines have the free version? The latest free version has all the technologies from the paid version and has, in my opinion, drastically improved its protection.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

I came back to thank Jacee, and tell her and JMH that I did restore from my last back-up, which of course reinstalled the bug. I got rid of the other anti-virus junk as I had been shown, installed and updated MSE, killed the bug, changed my banking info, and I'm laughing.

I had come before, but when I saw one of your Seven Gurus actively promoting the anti-ethics of Alisa Rosenbaum, in a Help Forum, I was a bit horrified.
