    "Compared to AVG most other free downloads are sloppy!"

    August 25, 2011  |   By jessix1

    Pros

    I had NORTON on 2 laptops. Tech support introduced me to AVG which is quick, light, and directed. Norton is bloated, takes up space, and both computers ran slow without viruses! AVG restored the speed of both and easily keeps both LEAN & MEAN!

    Cons

    The FREE version is as good as the Pro version and allows indefinite updates. The Pro version, with a few insignificant additions must be renewed yearly, with it's updates. Buy the lifetime Pro edition with lifetime updates and be set for life!

    Summary

    I put together a modified "WEBPOST TOOLS" set following John Saya's design that was recently reviewed {http://www.webpost.net.} A big difference between his design and mine is that I worked around the anti-virus and spyware removal programs I used all the time. Not only didn't I have to download all the active programs every time I used the set but I was already familiar with how my own programs worked.

    Naturally I used AVG as the first and biggest program of the set. This set of programs that attack different parts of the same intrusion is very effective for me and it restored the speed of both my computers after only one or two run-throughs. All the programs used in this set are FREE programs, like AVG.

    What more can I say except AVG and a few similar programs have worked so well for me FOR FREE, that I'm going to purchase the "Pro" versions of each of them as long as I can get "lifetime subscriptions" for their updates.[
