Ill just say that every day I get a notification that avg is offering me a free trial of the paid version. Im very happy with the protection Ive gotten from avg, Id recommend it to anyone. I got a message today saying we detected a tracking cookie on your computer and when I click resolve issue its an offer for the paid version. Are tracking cookies that bad? Anything deleting my cookies wont fix? Should I be concerned?
