So I’ve been a user of AVG Internet Security for a while, and it’s been annoying me for a number of reasons; initiatory and the main reason is that every time I run a scan, it‏‏‎‏‏‎‏‏‎‏‏‎­will always highlight “problems” and these come up amber etc, and it’s always crap like “your connection is insecure, but our VPN” or “your pc is slow, buy TuneUp!”. I’m sick of that, I pay decent money to have an application do what it says on the tin – not be spammed with false “findings” in scans to buy their additional packages. So my chief requirement is that whatever is suggested doesn’t do the above!! Also AVG is currently licensed for 1pc, I have 3 windows devices, and it annoys me I need to cancel my expensive subscription and go find a genuine product on Amazon for massively reduced rates and for multiple devices! (50% less than I currently pay for 1 device!). Finally their integrated firewall has problems, it works 99.9% of the time great. But I’ve started using head tracking software on my iPhone that UDP’s on my Wi-Fi/lan to my desktop, and the firewall doesn’t like that. Adding rules/exemptions is buggy and I haven’t got it to work correctly yet, so I end up disabling it (Windows Defender on the other hand handles it fine!). So does anyone have any good suggestions? I was looking towards BitDefender, but have read some comments on here that recently it’s also started spamming users to buy additional upgrades like AVG does? (I take it Avast = AVG too). What a shit market segment of software, I don’t mind paying for stuff where I consider it value, but spamming me and/or not working as advertised isn’t on at all – and from my very limited research there doesn’t appear to be a gold plated solution to Antivirus/internet security? Thanks for any advice!

    Kaspersky, Bitdefender, ESET. Choose one of these. Avast & AVG are bad currently.
