Editors' Review

+
This antiviral program offers rock-solid protection for no financial commitment. AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition provides all the necessities, including a tool for scanning your hard drive and e-mail, as well as a real-time shield to prevent infections. By default, the application is set to search for new virus definitions daily, but you always can use the scheduling tool to change this. Should a virus create serious system problems, AVG create a rescue disk to scan your computer in MS-DOS mode. The program doesn't tax your system when scanning or when running in the background and always proved effective in our tests. This app's interface can't be described as beautiful, yet it is mostly simple to navigate. Sure, you can plunk down a lot of cash for an antiviral application with more features, but AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition delivers the goods for free.

"Easy for a Beginner, Free, Better than the rest."

July 20, 2006  |  By mcshada

 |  Version: AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition 7.1.375

Pros

This is the easiest Anti-Virus program on the market to use. And more important, The best at finding Viruses.

This Free program runs and works better than the Pay programs!

Low memory consumption.

Easy to schedule.

Daily automatic Updates.

Runs in the background while your web brousing and has alerted me to viruses trying to get in. I can then imedently view them in the Quarantine part of AVG.

Cons

It's only setting for auto scan are Daily, or System Startup. (or Manual)

"Heavily Robust Program"

May 30, 2006  |  By richardverslues2006

 |  Version: AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition 7.1.375

Pros

This Program is very lite on the rescources, and is very heavly armored against viruses no matter how many try to get into your computer. Also very smart about 1 week ago my program found 3 adware which is very unusual for an Antivirus program. Very easy to operate, when you need help they are right there to help you. This guy is well worth the money.

Cons

I have nothing bad to say about this program
