I recently received a request from AVG to have an add-on - AVG Online Security - which will protect against phishing and malware sites. There was a note from Firefox that Firefox does not monitor this add-on.

I use AVG Virus Protection - free copy - and it seems to be doing its job; although, I have been thinking about buying the software.

Has anyone used this add-on? Is it all right to install? Is it necessary to install? Since I changed internet service providers, I have not seen much in the way of phishing and AVG Virus Protection prevented me from accessing two websites it said were questionable.

Normally, any decent antivirus will block connections to potentially unsafe sites because they scan every single page and file downloaded, before it is downloaded/opened/shown. So, using a browser plugin on top of the antivirus is totally redundant. Browser plugins should be avoided at all costs, by a general rule.

Thank you, Andrew. I will not do the add on. It sounds as if it might be one more thing to clutter my computer.
