avg software from grisoft.

unfortunagely, i have to pass along so distrissing news in reagards to a great product, avg made by girsoft.

the version that they are now selling, 7.5, will pretty much killed the use of my computer. adding to my woes, i had to call in an tech support company to bale me out. when we finally were able to get my station up and running again, we went out and did discover that the version 7.5 has many problems which grisoft is aware of, but they certainly do not make you aware of the challenges when purchasing their product.

i did try to contact grisoft via phone, but the only USA phone number they have listed on their site is a re seller, who i did not purchase from. the resller was very nice and completely aware of the challenges with avg 7.5.

i did submit an email form to grisoft for which i got a canned reply followed by a reply telling me thank you, but too bad.

avg has been a great product for me, but i would strongly suggest staying clear of their current version 7.5

I did run into someone with spyware damage and they had issues with both AVG and McAfee. Is that either company's fault?
