Seeking Technical Advice: Free AV and search diversion
I know a number of people here are more tech savvy than I am. I'm having a couple of problems that I'd like advice about. One is choosing which free anti-virus program to use. I've been using AVG through the 8.5 version but lately having troubles with it. The other is addressing a recent problem with searching: searches being redirected to ad sites. I've started using a free spyware program (Spyware Doctor) but that seems not to have solved the problem.
If you're able to advise me I'd welcome input, but don't want to distract you, so answer on your own time schedule here. My goal is not to divert you from whatever tasks you might have that need to be done.
