I only cut the UPC instead of the whole bottom flap for my last rebate. I'm wondering if anyone else has done this before and still receive the rebate check?
You probably screwed yourself to be honest. A phone call may fix it after they deny it but I dont know. The only thing I can really say is, they recently changed the requirements of the rebate forms to require the whole bottom flap instead of just the UPC so....im sure they wont let that slide... Youll have to wait and see.
It unsecure from autorun and trojan threats. Generally I receive lottery emails with viruses, it do not detect them.
??? HUH. IDK if there is a language barrier here or what but you didn't reference what product you were talking about...
Is this a good antivirus software? Is it better than Norton/McAfee? TIA!
MSE & AVG Free CONSISTENTLY rate in detection of new viruses in the mid-70 percentile, year after year. While Kaspersky rates in the upper 90% closer to 100%, since 2009 so has Norton/Symantec, and Bit Defender though I don't know from what year, if you need a free only Anti-virus which isn't advisable at least choose AVAST it ranks in the 90% often, but is considered nagware & is not a complete suite. AVG & MSE are not on the front lines analyzing & using heuristics to suss out the latest virus threats. YES, eventually, sometimes as long as 1-2 weeks later (though often faster) they get the definition that companies like Kaspersky, Norton/Symantec, and Bit Defender are finding.
And it can very much be a question of timing. If you don't cross paths with a virus / drive by downloader during the time you are vulnerable bc your security software doesn't have the definition and or it doesn't recognize enough similarity to an existing virus (using the systems heuristics - which I turn to a more aggressive level than default - fast systems can easily handle the slight increase in CPU & work it creates - not true of older say Pentium 4 single core systems).
AVG Free & MSE are VASTLY LIMITED in scope & scanning and protection. Better than nothing for sure but they don't warrant a seat at the big boyz table. They are strictly third tier. Often good for older P4 systems or people that are completely non-tech savvy. Or people that can't afford to the money tied up in MIR deals like this or can't risk not getting it back at all situations.
