I switched to this anti-virus protection at the recommendation of my son who uses it and it was fine until I recently had to update and purchase the premium addition. Now ever little google search I type is blocked and it's driving me crazy. If I need a phone number for a company like best buy it's blocked, or I type in the Roger Williams pumpkin festival, it's blocked, just unreal what simple searches are routinely blocked.

I miss the days before computers and smart phones, man tech sucks, it really really sucks.

Why did you purchase premium?The choice is there to upgrade or not every single time there's an update.

How soon before they suggest you get the "extra-special, double secret" premium addition upgrade?

Sounds like a low-level Ponzi scheme scenario...start at a low level and work you up to the high level (with the increase in cost along the way).

I am a legend in my own mind!

What is it? There's a ton of software products that don't do that. I have had Kaspersky for years and never had a problem.

I'm done
