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.

"Excellent piece of software."

September 25, 2007  |  By dgbvan

 |  Version: AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition 7.5.487

Pros

AVG Free does everything that I want it to do and then some. I have had no misadventures since I first installed this gem some years ago. Although threats have come and gone and come again, AVG has kept me safe and sound. Thanks Grisoft!

I like this program so much that I am thinking of buying the a/v - firewall version on the next upgrafe. Thinking about it - but I'm basically cheap.

Cons

Nada!

"Trouble downloading and "blue screen" every time I try."

September 24, 2007  |  By marystru

 |  Version: AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition 7.5.487

Pros

It appears to adequately protect my computer from viruses, when it doesn't cause a "crash"....

Cons

Ever since I replaced my Norton product with this free-ware, I've had increasing instances of the "blue screen" where my Windows crashes. I've lost information only once, but the annoyance factor is over-the-top. Each time, the explanation I get when I report the problem is that software is not installed properly. When I attempt downloading your "new" versions, the computer either crashes, or I get the message that the files from AVG are corrupted....
