"I Used to Love AVG Free"

June 24, 2015  |  By trihumanish

 |  Version: AVG AntiVirus 2015 2015.0.5961

Pros

It is free and it runs in the background.....

Cons

Things kept being deleted without my knowledge. I would turn on my laptop and would see a message "Deleting...." and about 2 weeks ago all my photos were gone. Many of my files were gone and I finally had to remove AVG and restore my laptop to an earlier date. After uninstalling AVG all my photos suddenly reappeared.

Summary

I am looking for a program that does not do things to my computer that I do not ask it to do. I prefer one that does not make my computer slow as molasses and remove important files that I need (like family photos). I am sad that AVG has come to this. I would not recommend it now. :(

"Not very impressed with 2015 Free"

February 07, 2015

 |  Version: AVG AntiVirus 2015 2015.0.5557

Pros

Great protection. As a user for almost 20 years, I never really had a virus issue while using AVG Free. Straight forward, easy to use, just wait for update to finish or it will slow down the PC.

Cons

2015 Free is not compatibly with Windows 8.1 and does not mention that anywhere.
Hijacked settings on IE 11, and no matter what, it would change what I set until I removed all AVG files.

Summary

I do not think a product should be released, even a free or beta version, unless it has been tested. I personally feel that the version released in January was not quite up to the quality of product I have been using for almost twenty years.

"Waning to all potential trial users and buyers. Don't."

January 25, 2015  |  By mrmxltplk

 |  Version: AVG AntiVirus 2015 2015.0.5557

Pros

1) easy to uninstall
2) I'm glad I was using the trial version because I would have demanded a refund if I had bought it.

Cons

I'll give you the condensed version because if I didn't I would need several hours to list all.
1) Slowed down my computer.
2) messed my keyboard up
3) I couldn't download several other programs I needed.
4) I couldn't use Windows Media Player. I had it checked for Auto-play and it wouldn't work. I couldn't even get the DVD's to play by using the right click to play because it had been removed. There also was no option to play at the top of the video window, it had been removed.
5) I tried to delete some programs I didn't need anymore and I couldn't do that because it said I needed administrator privileges. I clicked on administrator on the pop up box, it accepted the click on but then a box popped up and said try again. I clicked on that and it still didn't work.
I couldn't even leave a comment when it asked me when I installed it. Even that didn't work. Yes, I'm an experienced computer user.

Summary

Will I ever use the antivirus program again. NO WAY!!!!

"Pop ups are getting as bad as Norton"

January 21, 2015  |  By ganerd

 |  Version: AVG AntiVirus 2015 2015.0.5557

Pros

Protects fairly well.

Cons

When the trial is expired, the annoying pop-ups start. It is getting almost as bad as Norton, which I hate.

 |  Version: AVG AntiVirus 2014 2014.0.4744

August 06, 2014  |  By PacManKills

"Started using as free edition some . Prompt alarming."

July 07, 2014  |  By fotobarje

 |  Version: AVG AntiVirus 2014 2014.0.4716

Pros

It is necessary to update manually now and then, as only the virus list updates automatically.

Cons

Seems that it detects false malware some keygen or similar. In this case there is a tool for cleaning, which seems to work perfect.

Summary

Free version sufficient for home use. Recommended.
