One of the products we recommend to all of our clients is called AVG virus scan by Grisoft. It’s the same type of Virus scan as McAfee or Noton. However, the reason we like AVG better is simple: it’s free and it works well.
Recently, there has been a pop up appearing on our clients computers asking them to upgrade to AVG 8.0. There is a long process of clicks to get you where you want to go.
You can skip all this by going to download.com
1. Click "download now" and save the file to your Desktop (It might take a little while to download)
2. Make sure all of your programs (Internet Explorer, Word, etc) are closed before you start to install
2. Click Run
3. Make sure you select Standard Installation
4. Uncheck the "Yes, I would like to install the AVG Security Tool Bar"
