Does the job
Pros: Has kept my many machines safe for years so far. Reasonably priced if you buy from Newegg. All the review rules let me say is this is the best way to buy it or you will pay a lot more. Their surf shield is really nice. Don't have a lot of diddling to do to run it.
Cons: This latest version broke a large expensive camera server program I know to be safe so this required a system restore. It didn't ask me if it could remove the items it just did so. This could be a setting but it was the default and it has never done so before. Program is still tossing errors so I will have to reload it. That's not cool. Whats with wanting to add tool bars to browsers? Hate that. The last ding is they want to be my search engine now. Must be a lot of money in searches. Not going along with this.
Other Thoughts: Even with the negatives if they can pull back on trying to take over the world. I mean I can get to speedtest myself thanks. If they slow their roll on some of these items I will stick with them. I use AVG to protect my server and all my workstations but I can get antivirus for free from my ISP yet I still prefer & pay for AVG. This could change. Since they require registering to use their product some thanks now and then would be nice. They never send flowers.
