"Runs Well and Does What It Says"

AVG LinkScanner 2011.1209a3589

2011-04-27

Pros:

Unlike a previous review, I have not had any problems running AVG LinkScanner 2011 with my antivirus product. I'm using LinkScanner in conjunction with the free version of Avira -- and both products work flawlessly with each other. AVG LinkScanner works very well indeed: I've been using it for about two months now and it's run perfectly and it's intercepted and prevented about a dozen malware attacks so far. So, I highly recommend that you download it and give it a try.

Cons:

I don't have any real cons regarding AVG LinkScanner. As I've mentioned, it's worked flawlessly for me.

Other Thoughts:

Definitely give it a try on your computer. The extra layer of spyware/malware protection is worth it.

"AVG LinkScanner 2011.1204a3402 will not run with other AV apps."

AVG LinkScanner 2011.1204a3402

2011-01-27

Pros:

None

Cons:

None

Other Thoughts:

Contrary to the app description, AVG LinkScanner 2011.1204a3402 will not run with other AV applications, other than an AVG AV app which already has the LinkScanner as a proprietary function. I'm running avast!Free Antivirus 5.1.889 under XP Pro, the AVG LinkScanner would not install unless I uninstalled avast! Free Antivirus 5.1.889. Why would I want to uninstall my current AV app just so I could install AVG LinkScanner??? The AVG LinkScanner app is completely useless unless it's compatible with your current AV app. To use a Star Trek term, the LinkScanner is a "dunsell", something that has no apparent use or purpose!

"Better than "WOT""

Other Thoughts:

Already included in all versions of AVG but if you use some other anti-virus that don't include a link scanner, then this is for you. Much better than depending on "Web of Trust", since WOT depends on users opinions whereas AVG link scanner will actually stop you from entering an infected website.
