Yesterday an unknown blog visitor emailed me, asking me for any other free anti-virus other than AVG.When people ask about FREE anti-virus, the name AVG will definitely be mentioned.
Probably I think the reason why AVG remains number 1 in free anti-virus is because when you search in Google for “free anti virus”, AVG is the first to appear. HE HE
