"WONT DOWNLOAD!"

March 16, 2012  |  By Edinburgh1

 |  Version: AVG Anti-Virus 2012 2012.0.1913

Pros

No pros whatsoever!

Cons

During download,it tells me I have to remove AVG antispyware.I can assure AVG that on my quite new PC,I have never ever installed AVG antispyware.I even tried the AVG removal tool,but still it says it is still on my PC.
Would give it Zero Stars at most!

Summary

Couldnt download, a load of rubbish if you ask me!
Complete waste of ten minutes of my life!

"Too resource hungry for older computers."

February 13, 2012  |  By No1Spank

 |  Version: AVG Anti-Virus 2012 2012.0.1913

Pros

Nice interface, fast system scan.

Good protection.

Cons

Generally slows my laptop down and causes it to run much hotter. To get from logging in to the desktop being usable takes minutes rather than the seconds it used to take.

AGV 2011 was bad but 2012 seems even worst.

Summary

Very good protection and nice features but you need a powerful PC to run it without noticeable performance penalties.
