AVG Support Community
Thumbs down accross the board. Better REMOVE this popup soon or loose ALOT of customers:
And here are some helpful reviews. Please do not ask me to stop this, I can't, it's part of my "marketing" campaign. I do undreservedly apoligise though and I understand any concerns you may have.....
They definitely have not removed the pop-ups at this stage.
I checked that I have the most current version, and the application tells me that I do.
However the pop-ups are still there, for me, today (the 18th of March, 2016)
I have been an AVG user for well over a decade. As suggested, I tried to submit product feedback about this nuisance pop-up and got the error Access Denied You don't have permission to access "http://www.avg.com/us-en/product-feedback" on this server.
Reference #blah blah blah. Great.
I recall when the pay/ free versions were consolidated. It was explicitely stated that the free version would continue. Are these tactics designed to get the free users to leave voluntarily? I'm not sure how AVG wins by creating inconvenience and bad feelings. I'm sorry to say but unhappy former users don't tell others to try a product (people who might be in a position to pay).
Wait no, sorry... I said it was ok 'cause it had been 3 days without no ads showing up during an online match, but today ther it was again... What a shame.
