    "GOOD BUT NOT BEST"

    August 23, 2011  |   By Bandito77

    Pros

    FAST
    MASSIVE VIRUS DATABASE
    DOESN'T SLOW CPU DOWN
    EASY TO USE

    Cons

    INTERNET SETTINGS ARE CHANGED(you have no choice in this)
    VIRUS VAULT IS NOT ACCESSIBLE(current issue with AVG)
    UNINSTALL DOESN'T REMOVE EVERYTHING(including changing your internet settings back)
    AVG SEARCH IS TERRIBLE AND INCREDIBLY ANNOYING

    Summary

    DO NOT DOWNLOAD! YOU WILL BE SEARCHING GOOGLE FOR HOURS OF HOW TO COMPLETELY UNINSTALL AVG AND HOW TO RESTORE YOUR PREVIOUS SETTINGS. ITS JUST NOT WORTH YOUR TIME. TRUST ME!!!!

    Hello Bandito77,

    AVG Search is part of AVG toolbar and you can choose not to install it.

    If there are any issues with uninstallation we recommend to follow this guide:
