Not sure if AVG has free malware scanner included. but Avast has it in the paid version. However, if you need a free malware scanner there are several:
1. SuperAntiSpyware - still very good and recently much quicker to use.
2. Emisoft Malware scanner - you can try full paid version for 30 days, then becomes free scan only.
3. Malwarebytes - quick at scanning and is well thought of, but I don't use it, so I can't comment.
4. As mentioned already, Microsoft Security Essentials includes a malware scanner

I'd use two of your choice. Always a good idea to run two separate scans occasionally.

Anyone know if AVG or Avast (free) contains a malware scanner?

Used to like AVG but in recent times was having problems with it. Was a nightmare to get it removed. Happy with MSE now :)O

Whenever the subject comes up on here people always recommend MSE over Avast although Avast is still very good which is what I use and it does a great job.

I would thoroughly recommend PC Pro if you've not read it before. A lot of really in depth discussion and insight into a broad range of issues. £1 for 3 mags is money well spent, it will keep you occupied and thinking for hours.

The free gifts however (I have received both) are tat. The toolkit is of the pound-shop variety, and, yes, it's a maglite, but technology has moved on tremendously since these mini-torches were introduced: any pound-shop LED torch, and probably the LED flash/torch on your phone, are better than this.

So in conclusion, I say, order for the mags but not purely for the gifts.

Thanks DodgyDave.

Btw I meant PC Pro, not PC shopper :P

Original Poster

I'd say probably cancel once you've received the 2nd trial magazine and the free gift? Sometimes these offers tell you in the confirmation emails the dates that the direct debits are due. The 1st direct debit will be for £1 so i'd look in the emails for an indication of when the 2nd and more heavyweight direct debit is due. Or you could email dennis publishing for the date if you give them your subscriber number which will be on the main confirmation email. I normally just cancel the direct debits by calling into the bank or cancelling through internet banking. You could let the publisher know you're cancelling but i don't know if that is 100% necessary.

This is such a poor quality toolkit that it's not even good enough to give to the charity shop. If anyone is desperate enough, they can have mine - postcode N2. It's unused.

They used to be good. My best find was Delphi Personal 7 on the cover, RRP £93, but that was about a decade ago. Trouble is, all the software has been written already and the reviews have tended to admire 'build quality' and such intangibles while holding a stopwatch over the machines which are pretty much otherwise indistinguishable. Still a leading PC Mag, just the internet has taken a huge chunk of their readership.

So how do I cancel this guys?

I've been stung with offers like this before - cancelled my direct debit in time but then had letter after letter from the company claiming I owed them money and that I hadn't cancelled. Once bitten twice shy for me I'm afraid.



Strange-how do expect to complete the offer without giving them your details?
This is how these offers work.They expect people to forget and continue the subscription or people may take out a full subscription after the trail.
Simple answer is to email or phone them to confirm the DD has been cancelled.

how easy can you cancel?



After you have received your second issue just phone them and say you want to cancel.I have done it this way many times.Once you have received your third issue cancel the direct debit

Emailed PC Pro who just said use this code which was the magelite code.

Maybe if you ring and quote the code to them? Number is 0844 844 083. The leaflet makes mention of the free DVD as part of the deal so probably a site glitch

The £1 deal appears to only work for the CD version, not the DVD. I tried both a couple of times.

Use the link mentioned in the original description as the other one seems to go to the wrong place (they always do this) i.e. the website is dennismags.co.uk/pcpro, and that definitely works because I just tried it.

I took up this offer last year or 18 mths ago and received the tool-kit without any problems and cancelled without any problems.

However, if you purely want the tool-kit (the one in the picture is identical to the one sent to me), bear in mind an identical toolkit (down to the packaging) is or was sold by Poundworld (not Poundland, although they might be part of the same group).

Spare youself the hassle of cancelling the subscription and buy the same toolkit for a quid.
