All I could say when I read it was are you kidding me, and repeat it over and over again.
A month ago I began a journey that has yet to really end. I wrote a post you may remember titled " Computer Held Hostage" post link
It was my 3rd best read post ever. In that post I tell how " Avast " the anti virus provider appears to have given me a virus rather then remove one rendering my computer useless. Rather then pay the fee to these modern day pirates I got a new computer and went from there. I tagged Avast on Twitter with a link to my blog post. I received a response on twitter something to the tune of oh we're sorry that happened. On the post it self a person commented that they were with Avast and would like to look into it saying that maybe I called a company that wasn't them. The person asked for the number I called, my Email and a few other personal details. Details I did not give. I gave the number I called, the time and length of each call and who I spoke to. From that information a person working in computer security should certainly be able to get the rest of the information they need without my giving more personal information to a perfect stranger. There was no follow up after that not a single thing happened no phone calls or Emails nothing. That is until yesterday when I got this Email.
Avast is suppose to be rated number 1 in anti virus protection. I just don't see how that is possible. Well for me Avast is not number 1 in fact for me they aren't even on the map.
Have a wonderful Wednesday! Thank you for stopping by.
