Thanks Deja, we have been wondering about AVG, to be quite honest we do very little work on our comps now-a-days anyway, do they cover for Kindle too ? on my other tablet OH put Avast on it ! Norton are too expensive for our needs I am sure. xx

Not sure about Kindle Dita but just check out their webpage you might find what you need there. Even though I have AVG free version, there are loads of updates every day so you are always on the most up to date version.

AVG and Avast are now owned by the same company so you may find their products are now very similar.
I've used Avast for years and have been satisfied with it.

Thanks Young Goat that's very handy to know, I will have a look in a while to see if Avast will cover my Amazon Kindle because I have just treated myself to one, My original Advice was our online Security for our 2 Lap Tops which we have paid Norton for in the past, it is very expensive now a days. Sounds as if we will be fine on Avast instead because we do very little online anyway.

I found Avast slowed down my Windows laptop too much and now use Windows Defender. OH uses the free AVG on all his Windows devices.

On my Android tablet and phone, I use the free version of Lookout.
There's always another way
