Newer version of AVG antivirus will update automatically, even if you set up the options so that it's supposed to ask (which is doesn't). Although I removed it from most of my systems, I've a junk-laptop and TV Set PC (Dell refurb) for media and they still run AVG.
Sounds so Win10-ish. At least they give it out free, so complaints are a little less justified. Still, AVG has now become malware.
For entertainment purposes, I installed a firewall to replace the junk that comes with windows. All default AVG permissions were deleted (not just disabled). Now I'll see how this plays out. Will the firewall block access, giving me back control, or will a systems-level program like AVG slip around it? Actually, the firewall offers free AV, so the solutions already at hand, but you know how that curiosity goes (i.e., I want to win the battle, first).
[update] UPDATE: Zone-Alarm will handle it under the following conditions:
Change the exisiting ZA settings for AVG (deleting them is easiest).
Set the Advanced options slider to asks you before allowing
Set the other Advanced options slider security level to highest.
The second two procedures are required so that you can allow in update if you wish and ZA doesn't automatically pass it on some internal white-list. [/update] [a small brainfart caused me to post update wrong thread this AM]
Fiddler (software) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia[^]Seems to work with HTTP/HTTPS - and AVG's not. It runs as a background program loaded at the SYSTEM level. No browser or related protocols need be involved. By using the Firewall (ZoneAlarm), I hopefully disabled its access as a recognized application. ZA will (I hope) ask me to permit access when I next fire up the system.

Although it's more likely you'll get one if you pay for the service. Either way, it gives a whole new meaning to "Open Source"!
He must be: it's August Bank Holdiay Monday in Wales and the sun is shining. This is weird: there is no rain visible anywhere; washed clothes are drying outside; cats are not requiring a towel. Salad may even be consumed.

Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...
I had a shower when I got up and another just now. Probably will need a 3rd before dinner.
Must be extremely uncomfortable what with Poms being allergic to water and all.

Well, judging by her tattoo (and other generous attributes), this was clearly a photo from the Beach at Compton Bay. It's well known and understandable how you Brit's love US-logo'd items. None the less, were it not so, let me paraphrase the late Frank Zappa:

I was just going to try writing a UWA universal windows app. That's all. I already have Studio Community 2015 Installed. However I missed the like service pack 3 or something. OK upgraded that and had to install UWA tools. OK fine. Then reboot start Community 2015 create UWA from project template. Try to view Basic Xaml form. No. Tells me my Win10 isn't updated even though I look at with does updates and it says it just checked earlier today. OK go to site. Ohhhhh I need the upgrade to the upgrade Win 10 Anniversary edition OK. Download is like 11GB OK I can deal. Download done. Installing (focus on stalling). Then OK need to restart. OK. PC completely unusable for hours now...83%.... Writing g this from Android pad. Well I guess I won't get a chance to write that first UWA app this weekend.
Remember when they sold us on technology saying it would make us more productive?
EditI'm at 95%. And this is an i7 with 8GB ram not too shabby of a machine but it has taken hours. I just didn't expect this.
