    "Not for me"

    October 9, 2012  |   By batmandu

    Pros

    Effective, I guess

    Cons

    Doesn't migrate server setups during upgrade
    Doesn't update AV definitions properly
    Confusing User Interface

    Summary

    Upgrading from AVG Free 2012, I had to re-setup the email servers. I think they should have been migrated automatically. Does not update the antivirus definitions automatically upon system startup, even though that option is enabled. During the 2 weeks since upgrading, the definitions were never updated. Worse yet, it didn't even tell me that they were out-of-date except for an inconspicuous notice added to the incoming email certification message. I went back to AVG Free 2012.
