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 creates 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.

The 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 to use and works well"

June 30, 2007  |  By pat411

 |  Version: AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition 7.5.467

Pros

I've been having some major problems with my computer. AVG can't fix them all but it does a good job of scanning for viruses and it does it's job quietly..little windows now and then so you know it's on the job..without all the fanfare and distractions of some of the other similar programs.

"Functions well. Somewhat cumbersome in the start phase."

June 29, 2007  |  By dvajamz

 |  Version: AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition 7.5.467

Pros

Smart. Easy. AVG gives you the feel of a hands on approach without burdening you with having to approve each and every application or phase of an application unlike Comodo (and I SWORE by Comodo anti virus for a VERY long time)

Cons

I have two user accounts on my system. One for work one for everyday stuff. When getting ready for work & switching to that account I have to go through the process of shutting down the update & scan because it takes up system resources AND often doesn't allow you to access things you need to. This is a smart feature in truth but it also is one that I end up circumventing by avoiding it all together. Likely this is just something I need to adjust in the properties. Am I the only one that doesn't take that simple step?
