Update antivirus from AVG to Avast
« on: April 30, 2014, 12:45:23 AM »
Good morning folks how's everyone doing  8)

I am planning to dump my current antivirus free software AVG that is installed in my desktop and install Avast. Can I use the same email address that I registered my Avast Free after installation on my laptop and install a brand new Avast Free Edition and use the same email address for registration on my desktop or a different email address?

The same email address makes everything much easier.

@Pondus: Will do  ;D
@bob3160: Definitely

At the moment I am running ESET Online Scanner on my desktop and at the moment it found 6 so far some are hacktool and some are PUP and some are PUA. I also did research on them via online and found out that they are bad. I also did scan with AdwCleaner (nothing found), MBAM Free 2.0.1 quarantined one, SAS Free (nothing found), AVG Free (nothing found). I am definitely sure it will find so many more as well. That's why I want to dump that sh!t AVG antivirus and install Avast Free Antivirus. After ESET Online scanner finishes the scan I am going to do a full system scan with HitManPro and will see if it finds anything.

Do you want me to do a scan with any other tool? Hence, I am typing this up in my laptop with Avast installed.

At the every end I will get rid of this sh*t AVG antivirus free and install Avast Free which I love every much and hasn't let me down since using it since Avast V7 on my laptop  :)
