What a disappointment. Having installed a paid AVG 2013 edition, fully updated, I still landed up with a variant of the Metropolitan virus. Having called the AVG support centre, who didn't seem to know anything about it, they suggested I call Virgin technical support (an AVG sub-contractor) who wanted £70 to fix the problem. It's beyond disappointing that a well-known and longstanding virus isn't included in the AVG cover and a rip-off by the Virgin sub-contractor Since I now know this can be removed by a free download of several products (for example malaware) I am frankly disgusted with this protection breach and the very poor AVG service.
agreed - I am a reseller of AVG and loads of my customers have got this virus and are not happy - AVG is normally good at stopping infections, but for some reason despite this virus being one of the most common for months and months it still isn't being stopped by AVG
yes I understand that - but it doesn't even find it after it has been infected to be able to remove it - whereas all other security products (hitman pro, malwarebytes etc) I have used will find it and remove it without an issue - so AVG is behind the times with this particular virus
When I next get an infected customer I will zip up the relevant virus files and supply them to you for analysis
