    "Good but conflicts with antispyware"

    August 20, 2012  |   By merglerr

    Pros

    Easy to use and efficiently removes virii as intended. Frequent updates to signatures are available and does not take much more machine resources than compatable tools.

    Cons

    Conflicts with other malware detection tools such as Ad-aware. Does not have a means to select exceptions to its database so one must choose only one fo the tools.

    Summary

    A well-written addition to the arsenal but it (like the Norton tools) wants to be your only tool. And does not play well with others 8-)

    Does not have a means to select exceptions to its database...

    That is incorrect, AVG does provide the means to set exceptions in advance settings, 'Resident Shield Exceptions'.
