AVG AntiVirus Free Edition Reviews
Newest Review: ... Free doesn't skimp out on features, protecting against all kinds of viruses and malware and it also has features to protect your identity and scan your emails. It automatically checks for updates and installs any so you don't have to worry about remembering to do it. When the program is open it looks sleek & professional, showing you all of the protection you have available and if they're turned on and up to date or not, and it is very easy to navigate to what you want to do. A full system scan takes about 30 minutes, which will slow down your PC if you're using it while the scan takes place, but it's not the end of the world slow un... more

I got fed up of paying for antivirus software that was bombarding me with adverts to upgrade to pay for something else that I just didn't need. A couple of friends had been recommending that I switch to AVG for ages and I decided to take their advice (and then kill them if it didn't work out well for my PC). I decided to opt for AVG's free service, partly to test it out to see how good it was, and well why pay for something when I can get most of it for free? I've stuck with the Free Edition for three years and I've never had a problem. AVG Free doesn't skimp out on features, protecting against all kinds of viruses and malware and it also has features to ... Read the complete review

AVG antivirus is a antivirus which has a secret, its completely free! For everyone who can actually find it i should hasten to add, it does take some looking around on their site. I must confess though i have no idea how they make money out of the free version unless its just an advert for the more expensive versions, although my gut tells me advertism might play into it. Anyway, the good new is that its a pretty effective antivirus, and has scan and virus vault feature. Last time i checked it cost money to get the firewall and email protection, which is partly why i moved to avast free antivirus for the firewall (if i can i will do a separate review on ...

I was recommended AVG free by a friend for personal use. I've been using it for the past 3 years. AVG is easy to install and use, although you do have to be careful not to install the web browser toolbars and other undesirable extras during the installation. AVG keep their databases up-to-date, and I have to upgrade once every few months. AVG runs in the system tray on the Windows OS and the control panel has separate areas for anti-virus, spyware, resident shield, scan options and other options like Family Safety which I haven't used. Performing a full system scan on my 500GB hard drive takes about 40 minutes using a quad-core processor. ... Read the complete review

My operating system - Windows XP Netbook - Samsung NC10 Virus Protection - AVG free (2011) Back up virus protection - Spybot Search & Destroy ----------------------------------------------------------------- As we know with recent cyber attacks on big corporations and governments a new kind of warfare and computer delinquency is developing online. In fact it would not surprise me if a rival electronics company keeps attacking Sony online through freelance hackers. It certainly wouldn't surprise me if the bulk of the £600 million pounds Cameron has put aside for cyber defence will go on cyber attacks of other countries and companies. We ...
