GO f*** YOURSELF, AVG.
No, I don't want your spyware/malware blocking service for any amount of money. I don't even want your free service anymore. Your pop-ups consume more system resources than malware infections I've had in the past, cause other programs I'm running to crash, and in general function like malware themselves.

I know you get what you pay for, but you'd think a tech company that sells antivirus/malware prevention software would do everything in their power to avoid seeming worse than/like a part of the problem, especially since your computer running well on the free version is ideally what would convince you to purchase a license.

Apparently they're running a shareware brain whose trial period expired before they had a chance to review their methodology.
