    "long time user not anymore"

    January 26, 2011  |  

    Version: AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition 2011 10.0.1191

    Pros

    I'm finding it hard to find one

    Cons

    1)my internet browser has turned to slow motion
    2)the price increase
    3)have had AVG pd version for yrs and will NEVER purchase again

    Summary

    I consider myself an advanced PC user, I have been happy with the protection etc from AVG in the past. The new Security 2011 is the pwrst product I have purchased in years. I use firefox and most of the pages open in slow motion, I have tried to shut all the protectors off will no avail. I am in search of a new virus program and will just be out the $41. I just spent on this horrible program.

    "It's good. It just hogs a bit of resources."

    January 25, 2011  |   By Impoxdragon

    Version: AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition 2011 10.0.1191

    Pros

    Great Anti-Virus.

    Cons

    *Lags more with SpyBot - Search & Destroy installed than unistalled
    *After one year, the Identity Protection will delete itself
    *After one kelogger, it will guard it and no longer guard you.

    Summary

    It's great for one-year or if you never get any Identity Malware on it but it needs SpyBot - Search & Destroy, Crap Cleaner (now CCleaner) and maybe Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware on it for Great Protection since that's what I have on my system and I haven't been plagued since. It's up to you for preference on what should be installed and what shouldn't be for you because we are different, you, the dear reader of this Product Rating, and I, the writer. Also, the "User-Sensitive" option is the same as "High-Priority" option. The toolbar is "Highly recommended" by me.

    "don't bother with this dud"

    January 25, 2011  |   By rick47591

    Version: AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition 2011 10.0.1191

    Pros

    it is not on my computer and never ever will be again...

    Cons

    the new avg 2011 is horrible, it consistently locks up computers. it doesn't like to scan all files, it takes a long time to scan, and is not as user-friendly as it once was. plus, tech support is horrible.

    Summary

    tried to install this on 500 computers and it locked up all but 2. contacted avg support and followed their instructions precisely and all it did was uninstall and reinstall the initial program. duhhhh!! no help! still locks up computers. Scans really slow. does not protect you from spyware as they claim. also does not protect you from embedded viruses online. avg has lost sight of what an antivirus is supposed to do. they've added things that just bulk-up the program and that makes it run slower and cause more problems. do not install. it is pure junk! if you want viruses, install it.
