    Just received a virus alert from Microsoft Edge that froze my computer. The computer instructs me to call Widows Support at a toll free number. I know this is a scam but I need instructions on how to unfreeze the computer

    If you must have AVG...

    Here is the comparison list --> We’ve got the right protection for you

    Seems the AVG Premium Security 2014 is the better deal; as, it has all the features of the other, plus Identity Alert, Quick Tune and Premium Mobile Security.

    Security Alert Verification

    I am trying to verify a security alert I have been receiving suggesting to call 866-288-3170 about a possible compromise of my system and devices. The internet security code mentioned is 055BCCAC9FEC. I have not called as I am not sure if this is a legitimate
    site or a scam. Any input or similar case?
