Digital River Gmbhrenew avant! fee

This conappeared on my desktop mysteriously about a year ago, suspect it may have been installed by superGeeks which was rrepairing my computer at the time. each time i used computer thereafter a pop-up would advise me that Avant! had updated my virus control. A week or so ago they put up a green alert that I had a fee to pay them to renew and asked for myu credit card #. I said I'd pay by check if they would provide their mailing addressd. did not receive. Terminated the service. Frankly, I don't know what they did or how they got on my system for sure, but am now suspicious and reluctant to release card #. Googled them, got this link, saw complaints, and am curious to know if they are a scam r did provide a service. I never have paid thm from the start because I didn't know anything about them. Are they legit?

    This virus protection was attached to one of my USB Flash Drives. I'm not too sure if they are legit or not because the company that sends the product is called Digital River GnbH located in Germany with an office in Chicago, IL. I've used it on my flash as well as my computer. They are now telling me that my scanner is about to expire. Now I'm not too sure if I would want to keep them or go with McAfee. Follow your gut.

    Hallo, mein Name ist Niko Awramow aus Nürnberg/Germany. von meinem Paypal Konto wurde v. Digital River GmbH am
    26.12.2014 die Summe 29, 95 € ohne mein Einverständnis abgezogen.Dabei habe ich keine Produkte v. Dr.Pot GmbH bestellt und ich habe auch keine erhalten. Mein Paypal Konto ist zur Zeit in minus 29, 95 € verursacht durch diese unerlaubte Abzocke und ich kann keine weitere Transaktionen über PayPal deshalb ausführen. Zur Zeit erhalte ich ständig E-Mails v. PayPal dass ich diese Summe v. 29, 95 € nachzahlen muss. Ich weis nicht um welches Produkt v. Dr.Pot GmbH es sich hier handelt . Die Digital River GmbH hat diese Summe bald wie möglich auf meinem PayPal Account zu ausgleichen.
