AVG s Anti-Virus and Internet Security line follows on the heel of last year s highly-ranked security suite by not merely incorporating some minor but key tweaks to both its front-end and back-end, but a stronger push toward personal data management and privacy utilities that help prevent uninvited access to your files. Though many threats still exist, security programs as they stand now start to encompass areas of privacy utilities. Whereas the majority of threats were once external viruses trying to force their way into your machines, nowadays malware focus more on tricking users to inadvertently open doors for hijacking.
Version 2013 was AVG s first push toward adopting and remixing the Modern UI movement. Not just a response to competitors, the Modern UI movement represents an overall push toward creating a more streamlined security experience. For the average consumer, what your anti-virus and anti-malware programs do to protect your computer have followed a set it and forget it mentality.
Balancing along the fine line of being both approachable yet empowering is a key goal of not just AVG but also just about any utility software developer: Modern UI has the visual appeal, but does it evoke control and the sense of security over all the software s power features.
In our last review, we commended AVG s decision to reduce the installation steps. It still contains a toolbar offer, and despite the universal hatred toward being fooled into installing yet another browser helper object, AVG s toolbar actually does include useful security options like Do Not Track. Again it s a tradeoff but if you really wanted DNT s features, then there s a standalone version available for free on Firefox and Chrome in their respective extension stores.
By now, almost every major security software maker has more or less adopted the flat, Modern UI look and AVG has kept its own visuals mostly intact. The main screen is decorated with AVG s primary areas of protection that include your computer, browsing the Web, Identity protection features, e-mail protection, and extras that populate the second row if you opt to purchase the premium or Internet Security suites. It s the same as last year s design, but still a radical departure from the old AVG that s appreciated, yet still may take some getting used to for the more hands-on user. Thankfully, all it s older scan settings are still neatly tucked under the options, though they aren t nearly as touch-friendly.
All visual and organizational improvements aside, AVG 2014 along with many other security suites we ve seen have more or less been continuing to dress a Windows 7 application without completely assimilating into the actual Modern UI environment, wholeheartedly. I can understand this context under the stance that there are still many who don t face a real urgency to upgrade to Windows 8. But if you re moving toward minimal input and maintenance for running a security program in the background, then perhaps Modern UI might be better suited in the long run.
For example, the options menu is still very much geared toward the mouse user, so having a meet-halfway kind of design slightly disrupts the overall experience of maintaining and protecting your machine with the touch of your fingers.
Two notable additions to AVG Internet Security are File Shredder and Data Safe. File Shredder is a more permanent solution to deleting files and reducing any potential digital trails for recovery. By default, Windows doesn t actually delete files, even after clearing the Recycle Bin, with the exception of overly-large file sizes. For the average user, this might not seem like much but in the era of privacy concerns, it s a welcome feature that will slowly start to become more relevant to the average consumer.
Even Data Safe, AVG s own folder encryption, helps you create what is essentially a secured pseudo-partition in a native location that can only be unlocked with a password. It s a practical precaution for those who share their computers with others and wish to avoid having to create separate profiles.
AV-Test results for 2014 are currently not published, but the 2013 marks for Internet Security showed a slight drop in protection, going down from a 5.5 rating out of 6 to 5.0. Performance remained standard at 3.5 but usability shot up significantly from 4.5 to 5.5 out of 6. AV-Comparatives gave 2013 a 1.1 percent compromise rate in their real-world protection test in their July report. Overall, AVG has maintained a relatively consistent level of security, which is above average, but the gains in usability combined with reduced system load, makes this version one of the most lightweight protection solutions for your PC.
To call this version the best AVG yet is a no-brainer; AVG s security efficacy, though not the best, still remains consistently high scoring among AV evaluations across the board. And though detection rates have improved, the biggest strides for this year s version have been made in the areas of privacy tools that are genuinely useful. As for whether it s the best security program around, that may depend on your current needs. AVG s emphasis on privacy tools and reputation ranking attempts to combat malware through educating and empowering users, at least slightly, with tools that remain easy to use yet encourage users to actively manage their PC files. We especially recommend this year s suite for those who actively share their machine with other users.

AVG Antivirus free is one of the most popular antivirus programs on the market. The company is moving from annual releases to rolling releases: as long as you have a subscription, you ll have the latest version of their software.
Rolling releases: In the past, buying a copy of AVG would get you regular antivirus updates, but features would not change until you bought the following year s version. Now you can always have the newest version of AVG.
It s free: Although it s release method has changed, you can still get a version that costs no money -- though there are a few strings attached more on that in the Cons section below.
Modular installation: AVG has separate components that can monitor your desktop email client and your Web browser for threats, and you can choose to not install both of these, if you have other software that covers these bases already.
Installer gotchas: If you don t intervene by using a custom installation, the installer will put you on a 30-day trial of one of the company s paid products instead of installing AVG Antivirus Free. And it will change your Web browser s homepage and default search engine to Bing.com.
PC Analyzer has issues: AVG Antivirus features a PC Analyzer, which checks for registry errors, junk files and broken shortcuts that can be deleted, and disk defragmentation. The problem is, you re not supposed to defrag a solid-state drive, but PC Analyzer did not appear to notice what type of drive it was. The analyzer is also all-or-nothing; you can t skip the defrag or the registry cleaner and just delete junk files and shortcuts, for example.
According to independent testing labs such as AV-Test and AV-Comparatives, AVG uses a solid antivirus engine. But the hoops you have to jump through in the installer and the technical error in the PC Analyzer have an impact on trust and confidence in the product.

Thanks for your help in keeping the Nike Story alive.
I was stationed at A Battery 2/56 ADA in Geinsheim, Germany from 1982 until it closed in 1984. Our Launcher Platoon Leader was 1LT Beverly M. Smith. She was also our best TCO. She was promoted to captain and re-assigned to Pirmasens as the adjutant. She went on to become one of the first female ADA Battalion Commanders and is now or recently was the Pacific Missile Test Facility at Kwaduline Atol as a full Colonel Col. Beverly M. Stipe. She has had had a great career and her great beginnings were in the Nike Family.
There were also a number of female soldiers working at the site as Military Police, Medic, and Supply.
Those were great days.
A small note from Goerigk, Rolf D. :
The Germans operated 6 NIKE Batallons, 21,22,23,24,25 and the 26 FlaRakBtl. Each bataillon consisted of 4 combat units.
From Benjamin Lowe - December 4, 2006
As you know, I just found your site. I have enjoyed the exploring and remembering things I thought were lost to history.
I did want to provide you with a. Next Generation. view of what had been SASCOM and became 59th Ordnance Brigade a few months before my arrival in Germany in 1978, in particular the 35th USAAD. Most of the problems Richard mentioned remained true throughout my tenure in Germany that is, until 1981. Although we did generally have three officers, we almost never had a qualified team sergeant there being by that time virtually no 16-series E-7s who had not either retired or converted to WO, never in my experience had a clerk, and rarely had more than 25 or 26 men assigned. For five long and horrible months in Rodenkirchen, we managed with 2 officers and 20 men plus or minus one because of a drug bust. And this was during an NSI cycle see below.
As shorthanded as everyone was, we could only concentrate on the core missions. custody and warheading. Most other Army stuff, such as training schedules, PT until I became TC, anyway, non-special ammunition property records, non-two-man key control, etc., were pretty well left to the weeks before the. NSI Cycle. or the AGI. We were thoroughly inspected, certainly; the NSI cycle lasted about three months every twelve to fifteen months, and started with an inspection from Det; then a. technical assistance visit. TAV from group, then the. Brigade Security Evaluation. from Pirmasens before we actually saw the NSI. We also put up with annual tactical evaluations from 2ATAF and the Air Force these cycles following the German chain of command in the same was as the NSI followed ours, an AGI from USAREUR, and inspections from every tenant unit in Bremerhaven, from the physical security people to the dining facility folks, on what seemed like a weekly basis.
My first year all three of the sites on which I served operated on the waiver Richard discussed, permitting the duty officer to be on call at home at night if the Senior Custodial Agent SCA was SANRAS qualified. 59th pulled all the waivers in the summer of 1979 and we had to stay on site or, later, in the admin area through duty. This little bit of bureaucratic mischief was compounded by a massive increase in traffic, which meant that generally both the officers and senior NCOs were awake all night, one night in three, and pulled normal business hours the other day although the workload was such that. normal. hours were often 0700-2000 or later. Of course, we went though all the post-Vietnam vicissitudes of the Army as well; I remember that 15 of my EMs were considered functionally illiterate including two 24Us. and had to be made available for. basic skills education. four hours a week. We also had a couple of bouts with drug busts, and one CQ who opened fire on me and the team sergeant after snorting cocaine. These incidents would result in the perps being. pulled from the personnel reliability program. and leaving us even shorter handed.
552d Group in Soegel pronounced ZER-gel was the command element for the. northern 3. dets. the 35th, 42d, and 51st. when I first arrived, but when 59th Ordnance Group PROV, the replacement for SASCOM, was reorganized in the summer of 1978 into 59th Ord Bde, all AD elements were placed under 5th Group in Bueren. Our supporting signal corps folks remained in Soegel, though, and we still took SANRAS/EMAS tests and did our two-man turn-ins of cookies and code there. We continued to wear the USAREUR patch through my tenure, although one of my A M sergeants proudly kept his SASCOM patch on his never-worn greens, telling me that it made his uniform SRFD SECRET-Formerly Restricted Data, in case anyone has forgotten.
I was originally to have gone to the 42d in Barnstorf, but 552d Group reassigned me after one day to the 35th. I started as Assembly and Maintenance A M Officer at C Team in Wiesmoor in May 1978. Newly-promoted Captain Gilmore was the TC; he would leave to take over the 51st Det I think a couple of months later. I remember the following conversation when I reported to him:
CPT. LT pronounced, of course, ELL-TEE, you know all that junk not the word he used they told you at Fort Bliss about how if you blow an NSI nuclear surety inspection they relieve you, put you in jail, and ruin your life forever..
Me feeling much relieved . Yes, sir..
CPT. Well, it.s all true, every bit of it..
He then handed me USAREUR Reg 50-100 and told me that I would be sleeping in my office until I passed the CA custodial agent test in Hohenkirchen. Thus inspired, I managed to pass it three days later.
I weathered an NSI in Wiesmoor and so pleased everyone. even the new Det WO, Cliff Atchley. that I was moved to D Team in Dornum that October literally the day of the post-NSI party in Wiesmoor. I only stayed in Dornum long enough to pass an NSI and Tac Eval, and then I was moved to B Team in Rodenkirchen after a drug bust there in February 1979. I don.t doubt the next stop would have been A Team in Hohenkirchen, but the chief of the NSI party in Rodenkirchen that April had also been on the other two NSI teams; he called Captain Pierce, the Det Commander, over at the outbriefing and said. You see that lieutenant over there. I.m not going to see him again, am I.. So I stayed in Rodenkirchen, first as A M, then as security officer, and finally from December 1979 to May 1981 as Team Commander. We did have some good times. we won the USAREUR small unit flag football championship in 1980, for instance. and a lot of long hours.
By the last few months of my tenure in Rodenkirchen, the German magazine Der Stern had published the coordinates of every site in 5th Group, we started having demonstrations along the highway by our site, and rumors of closure abounded. When I got back to Fort Bliss in June of 1981, I was promoted to CPT and retreaded into 14G. A friend from the 35th called me one Sunday afternoon, waking me up just barely ; when he realized I was asleep, he just said. Sir, you have a message downrange. and hung up. I was halfway out the door when I realized what I was doing and he called back, saying. Got you, didn.t I.. I still have stress dreams of the team, mostly panicking when I remember that we haven.t done an emergency destruction drill in oh, thirty years..
I lost track of most everyone from that time, particularly after I left active duty. I really appreciate your site and knowing. the rest of the story..
MAJ AD USAR ret
PS.BTW, my father was chaplain of the 314 Ord Bn at Hampton Roads Army Terminal, which provided GS to the local Nike sites. I actually had a photo of an ASP shoot in my room when I was growing up. which let me taunt my NCOs with the information that my father had worked with the system, too.
From Foy, Robert
A Team 501st USAAD was a custodial unit assigned to the 5th United States Army Artillery Group in Germany. A Team was attached to the 23rd FlageRockett Bn of the German Air Force in Lich located about 8 miles from Giessen. One of four teams, our mission was to defend both the air and ground corridor of the Fulda Gap. It was kind of scary when we went to our sister teams and found out that we were sitting on the Bullseye. All of their weapons were pointed directly at our position. Gives you a warm sense of security. Great info and glad to see that the Old Lady of Air Defense is being kept alive. She was a great system and taken care of by a great bunch of people.
Yes, the German Air Force had numerous Nike Sites throughout West Germany. The typical configuration of the Launching Area was three firing sections A, B, and C Section. Two of the three firing sections were controlled by US Custodial personnel because of the nuclear payloads mated to the missile. All access and maintenance within those firing sections was strictly monitored and controlled by armed US personnel. I guess the term Ground Zero would have been better than the Bullseye. You didn t really get that warm and fuzzy feeling when things started to get hectic. From what I ve been able to gather, the germans have converted over to Patriot now. The Fulda Gap was one of the prime invasion routes from East Germany into West Germany. A real prime piece of real estate.
E-mail of Belgian Airforce From Bob VERHEGGHEN
I was a Belgian conscript in from december 1974 till september 1975.
It is in 1957 that Belgium did complete its defence system by using missiles instead of aircraft only.
In the orbit of Mutual Defence Aid Program, the first Belgian personnel was send in november 1957 in the USA for training. The training lasted two years and by the return in Belgium, the units began assembling their new material in provisional locations at Elsenborn near the German border and in Bierset Air Base near Liege, waiting their posting to definitive locations in Germany, under construction.
In December 1959, it took over the traditions of the 13 Fighter Wing, disbanded in July 1958 these wing flew with Meteor Aircraft
The second unit, 9 WETSA, was formed on 28 May 1962 and took over the traditions of 9th Fighter Wing, disbanded in june 1960. A little bit later, the two units changed their names in 13th Missile Wing and 9th Missile Wing.Each unit had 4 missiles squadrons and a technical and support unit.
The coordination needs between the two units and the fact that they were stationed outside Belgium on German ground, necessitated a higher level of Command, having authority on the two wings and wich was called Groupement Missiles . It was created in June 1962.
The first bases in Germany were occupied by 13th Wing units in 1962 in D.ren 50 squadron, Blankenheim 51 squadron, Euskirschen 52squadron and Kaster 53 squadron not far from K.ln and the Belgian border.
The 9th Wing arrived in Germany in 1965 only after having been trained in the USA in 1961 and having been at Elsenborn and Bierset, left over by 13th Wing, now in Germany.
End in 1962, a third unit was created, reunifying the support under the name W S Msl Wing Support Missile. This was stationed in Duren during winter 62-63.
In 1965, the 53 squadron, based at Kaster, left 13th Wing to be put under command of 9th Wing. 55 squadron of the 9th Wing went to Kapellen-Erft and the 56 squadron stayed for a while in Elsenborn.
In 1969, 56 squadron, the HQ of 9th Wing and HQ Groupement Missile arrived at Grefrath, big radar station.
In 1971, the 54 squadron, last unit of 9th Wing arrived at Xanten and by 1976, the 56 squadron, left Elsenborn and took its quarters at Erle.
All units were disbanded in the mid and late eighties. 53 and 57 squadrons were disbanded in 1983, 52 and 55 squadrons in 1985,51 and 54 squadrons in 1989, 50 and 56 squadrons in 1990.
I have a very good souvenir of those 10 months in 52 sqn. I was working as switchboard operator in the launching Control trailer. The radars of the units were not on the same sites as the missiles. They were on a hill not far, some kilometers. We had 3 sections, two of them under US custody as each section had nuclear head on some Hercules tip of missile was red- I remember. Each year, the Belgians units went to Creta in Greece to practice live firing.
The most notable incident I remember was when we were put on NATO real alert as a soviet Mig 25 foxbat was crossing the Iron Fence, going south to photograph the Plateau d Albion in Southern France were the french had a Intercontinental Nuclear Missile base. Some time later, he came back, again full alert for nothing.
I hope these infos will be useful for you.

Finding the best antivirus software
This report covers antivirus software, which scans your hard drive, removable media, incoming and outgoing mail, email attachments and instant-messaging chats for malware such as viruses, worms and Trojan horses. Antivirus software is not just for PCs, either. Mac users, who were sheltered from malware and other threats for decades, are increasingly at risk for attacks.
Keeping a computer free of malware has become more difficult over the years as threats now emerge from multiple sources including computer files, USB drives, email attachments and websites. Antivirus software makers have responded by beefing up their antivirus software with extra features and defenses. In addition to fighting malware, the best antivirus programs now protect you from spyware, phishing, identity theft, threats delivered over USB and more. This still falls short of the all-in-one protection found in Internet security suites, which typically add in still more safeguards and features such as a software firewall, parental controls, file encryption and back up, plus more. If you think that a suite s more encompassing protection is something you are interested in, we name some top choices in a separate report on Internet security software.
One factor that argues in favor of an internet security suite over an antivirus program is that the cost difference between a full-featured antivirus program and the same company s Internet security software suite is often nominal. On the other hand, the extra features might be redundant, or not needed. For example, experts say that the hardware firewall in most modern routers is usually much more effective than a software firewall.
Still, the industry trend is to load up antivirus software to the point where some products offer enough extras that they are almost indistinguishable from what another vendor might market as a security suite. Symantec has taken things one step further. It has discontinued Norton Antivirus, and virtually every other security product it previously offered, including Norton 360, in favor of an all-encompassing solution, Norton Security Est. 55 and up. The base version includes licenses for up to five devices, including PCs, Mac, and iOS and Android mobile devices. A step-up version, Norton Security with Backup Est. 60 adds a file backup utility, free cloud storage, and ups the license to cover up to 10 devices.
As with most computer products, comparative professional reviews are usually the best guide to finding useful, quality products. The best reviewers do their own hands-on evaluations of effectiveness, any impact on computer performance, and general usability. Most also rely on testing from one or more of the many independent labs to either supplement their findings, or sometimes in place of their own testing when it comes to gauging malware prevention. These respected third-party test labs include AV-Test.org, AV-Comparatives.org, Dennis Technology Labs and Virus Bulletin. Some look at malware prevention, and only malware prevention, while others now also rate factors such as installation, ease-of-use, system impacts and more. For the most part, either top-line summaries or the full text of their findings are free to the public.
User reviews are a good guide to problems that user encounter in the real world. Professional reviewers usually test programs on virtual machines instead of real-world computers, so they sometimes don t encounter the issues that some users experience. That s why average user ratings often fall below professional ratings.
We look at all these sources to make our recommendations for the best paid and free antivirus software for PC or Mac users. Those recommendations are based on performance of course, including how well a program blocks attacks and how well it cleans up the mess in the case of a system that s already infected. Extra features are evaluated both on performance, and how helpful -- or in some cases harmful -- they potentially are. Modern antivirus software is a lot easier to set up and use than older programs, but it s not always smooth sailing.
Best Antivirus Software
Antivirus-only software programs -- once the standard of the industry -- are becoming less common as threats emerge from multiple sources including computer files, USB drives, email attachments and websites. Antivirus software makers have responded by beefing up their antivirus software with extra features and defenses. In addition to fighting malware, the best antivirus programs now protect you from spyware, phishing, identity theft, threats delivered over USB and more.
Although there are dozens of antivirus programs on the market, only a few consistently impress experts. Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2015 Est. 35 per year for 3 PCs is squarely among those. You won t find a ton of extras, but malware protection is first rate. It guards against viruses, spyware, and more. Its anti-screen-locker technology helps swat away ransomware -- rogue programs that won t let you access your computer without paying a fee. It also monitors your system and lets you roll back any unauthorized changes to settings. Other features warn you of possibly dangerous URLs and help ward off phishing attacks. An available rescue CD can disinfect your system if it is virus-ridden beyond repair.
Kaspersky Anti-Virus is an Editors Choice at PCMag.com and its antivirus engine draws certification and top grades from the top independent antivirus software testing labs. Kaspersky is one of only two antivirus vendors to earn an Advanced award in all 2014 testing at AV-Comparatives.org, including trials designed to gauge the software s ability to detect new and established malware, removing malware from an infected system, and its impact on overall system performance. The company also earns a perfect 6 out of 6 from AV-Test.org in tests of protection, usability and impact on system performance. Dennis Technology Labs gives Kaspersky the highest AAA rating.
Tom s Guide is a modestly dissenting voice. The editors there find protection to be first rate, but grouse about the usability of the interface and a high performance hit, albeit on a low-end system. We saw some user comments complaining about similar issues, but owners seem to be a happy bunch overall. At Amazon.com, Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2015 earns a 4.4-star rating, exceptionally high for an antivirus/security product, following more than 120 reviews.
The 2015 edition of Bitdefender Antivirus Plus Est. 60 per year for 3 PCs is another top choice. It s a little pricy compared to Kaspersky, but what you get for your money is first-rate protection. BitDefender is also loaded with extra features it even constantly monitors your credit report.
Simply put: Experts and testing labs love Bitdefender nearly as much as Kaspersky. It s an Editors Choice selection at both PCMag.com and Tom s Guide. It joins Kaspersky as the second of two antivirus products to earn an Advanced award in all 2014 testing at AV-Comparatives.org. Other labs find performance that s close to that of Kaspersky, but that s just a hair behind in one aspect or another. It earns perfect scores from AV-Test.org when it comes to protection and performance. The lab does dock it a half point on usability for generating a handful of false positives, though its performance in that regard was in line with the industry average. Dennis Technology Labs rates it highly, but it places just behind Kaspersky in the second tier of AA-rated software.
If there s a concern, it s that user feedback for the current version is limited thus far, and very mixed. One of the chief sources of owner dismay is an apparent automatic renewal policy that re-ups the software at the end of the year by default. Others complain of customer support that s tough to get in touch with, though we ve also seen reports that once in motion, support can usually resolve user issues.
It should be noted that for PC users, Windows Defender or Microsoft Security Essentials for Windows 7 and earlier comes with the tech giant s operating system. It provides basic antivirus security but testing reveals that protection levels are far below that of the best paid antivirus software. Even many free antivirus programs outperform Microsoft antivirus software by a substantial margin -- and we cover the best free antivirus software elsewhere in this report. Also, be aware that if you install a separate antivirus program, you may need to disable Microsoft s tool first to prevent performance issues.
