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.

"Not recommended"

January 02, 2010  |  By debtejada

 |  Version: AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition 7.5.476

Pros

I thought I liked the product until I had a problem. There is no tech support

Cons

I requested a superviisor 7 times all requests were ignored. There is not way to temporarly turn off the software one has to spend 30 minutes going thru every application to turn them off individually

Summary

Dont waste your time. The best producrts have customer support when a person is in need. I had an email going on with different individuals from a foreign country who were determined to write the same insturctions that did not solve my issues as many ways as possible. No one person listened to me or cared to solve the delima. I contacted LogMeIn they were fielding thousands of complaints reinstalled my program quickly and we moved forward. Bottom line there are other better products that care about their consumers

"HORRIBLE SUPPORT - THEY HOLD YOU HOSTAGE"

April 04, 2009  |  By icepreyas

 |  Version: AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition 7.5.476

Pros

- Popularity of the software

Cons

- When I signed up for their software, they never sent me a License Key. NO ONE RESPONDS to your request for the license key. I sent a request twice already and all I got was a stinky auto response.

Summary

Support stinks:
They probably have bad business ethics - trying to push you to buy support by holding you hostage.
Zero responsiveness

"5 Start Software - FREE"

November 30, 2008  |  By RAYT721

 |  Version: AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition 7.5.476

Pros

This program worked in removing things that other scanners didn't find. I have no reservations in referring AVG to anyone looking for protection. I am very impressed at how quick and easy the download was... and FREE!

Cons

Haven't found anything yet.

Summary

Thumbs up to CNET and AVG for allowing access to such a fantastic product!

"So easy my grandma could do it! And she did-"

August 20, 2007  |  By Nancywitch

 |  Version: AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition 7.5.476

Pros

Great price! If this takes care of my system and functions as promised, then I will definately be looking into buying additional products to make things run smoothly and safely.

Cons

The immediate up-dates at 8:30am, when I'm settling in to work, were a hassle until I figured out how to schedule them at a less intrusive time.
