    "not a good antivirus competator"

    March 22, 2011  |   By Virus6851


    antivirus module isnt very affective against zero day malware
    spyware module hardly updated badly outdated malwarebytes could beat avg in a removal and protection test which is really sad


    they need to improve most of the componets including avg surf shield and rootkit protection


    id keep the identity protection componet really well done rest of program needs to be improved as of now i wouldnt want avg as my antivirus
