Do I have Avast or AVG?

21 November 2017     Do I have Avast or AVG???


About a year ago, Avast aquired AVG and has slowly been changing the branding of AVG CloudCare so that it fits their image.  It has been a very good thing for us and our customers.  Avast has put a lot of money into development of the security system that is CloudCare.  You may still have the AVG logo on your computer or it may have updated already to Avast.  If it has not yet updated, it will.  Still the same CloudCare, though, but it really has improved.

I’m including some information this year with your AVG/Avast CloudCare invoice so that you might better understand the value of the product.  If you are getting this invoice, your PC is protected by AVG/Avast CloudCare in partnership with Friendly Connections IT.  We actually manage the system, AVG/Avast provides the platform and the antivirus.

You may have AVG on your computer without having paid for it so far.  We put it on every computer we sell and every computer we back up and reload.  We typically do this for the balance of the year without charge so this may be your first notice of payment.  The $39.95 plus tax per computer is for the next 12 months.

As you can see here AVG CloudCare is business class antivirus.  No frills, no marketing, nothing but solid malware protection.

We have been using AVG now for 11 years and our results speaks volumes.  In all of that time with thousands upon thousands of customers we have seen almost no malware on PC’s running AVG.  Since moving to CloudCare it has only gotten better.  With AVG/Avast CloudCare we have the best of AVG without any of the noise that sometimes appears in the consumer version.  It is easy to install and requires no re installation.


Send us a check or call with a credit card or Stop by and say hello and we’ll take care of the payment on the spot.

But we need your payment soon as you get this or your license will expire.

Give us a call 512-931-4134 with questions, answers or payment.  I’m good with any of the three.
