I have a paid version of AVG installed on my computer.
AVG's "Firewall Profile" menu provides three options:
1) Allow all
2) Block all
3) Directly connected to the Internet.
I am not at all able to decipher the above three options and then select one of them. (I could not find a phone number to contact AVG to seek directly from them deciphering of the above three cryptic options. Hence this posting.)
I shall highly appreciate help in understanding what the three options exactly involve, (and also, if possible, a suggestion as to which of the three options I might be better off using.)
Though the cause of my multiple bafflement should be evident, please allow me to amplify:
What does "Directly connected to the Internet" option mean? (Thus, in contrast, what would be an "indirect" connection to the Internet?)
What does "all" in "Block all" include? Would selecting the "Block all" option "unnecessarily" be too restrictive? On the other hand, why would anybody be wanting to select the "Allow all" option and thus receive no Firewall protection after paying for the AVG service?
Thank you so much.
