Component LinkScanner

The LinkScanner component is consists of two major parts:

· AVG Search-Shield (evaluating Internet links generated by the most commonly used search engines)
· AVG Surf-Shield (real-time online protection from malicious websites)

Both parts aim to protect you when browsing the Internet, in real-time, from dangerous contents of websites, and even links to such websites.

Note: If you have chosen to install just one of these two parts, only the remaining part will be available to you. To add the missing part to your system, you will need to reinstall your AVG.
