Question

AVG download

by viper41 / February 19, 2014 9:18 AM PST

I just got a lap top with Win 8 on it. It had a 90 day trial version of Norton on it that was active. Norton expires in a few days and I have been trying to download AVG free version. Every time I try to down load AVG free version a message comes up that says down loading. It just stays there with that message for hours. This happens every time I try it. Any suggestions? Thanks, Bill

that Windows 8 has Microsoft Security Essentials integrated into Defender which automatically protects against viruses and malware? I've been using it for 2 years with Windows 8, and haven't had the first problem (knock, knock).
