Re: IT Crowd

AVG was good back in the Windows XP days, but ever since they started to support (or not) Windows 7 and later, they have gone downhill pretty fast, including installing all that additional web$h!t that doesn't work any better than a little bit of common sense (ok, I know, a rare commodity these days).

But as far as Windows Defender goes, well, it does something. If that is any good, I am not so sure, there ARE free anti-virus solutions out there, like Avast, that do a MUCH better job, though they also started to go down that dark rabbit hole of trying to install all kinds of crap that is of no use (how do they dare to tell me which programs on my PC are unnecessary for example)...
