AVG Link Scanner and Google Chrome

by whizzkid2k10 / October 5, 2010 5:52 AM PDT

I have just purchased the latest AVG 2011 full protection and realised that the link scanner is not compatible with Google Chrome. Obviously I have other gadgets protecting me as well as the link scanner with the full protection version but I am wondering if AVG is working on making it compatible with Google Chrome as well in the near future since it is my favourite way to browse the web. Any response to this matter will be greatly appreciated.

Hello whizzkid2k10,

yes, our developers are working on Safe Search add-on for Google Chrome. Else please be informed that second (main) part of LinkScanner - Surf-Shield - is scanning all http communication and is independent on used browser (application). So it is already protecting you in Google Chrome.

Thank you

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
