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.

"It seems to have been effective for me."

August 09, 2010  |  By Peter Lisheen

 |  Version: AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition 7.5.516

Pros

It hasn't given me any trouble, nor have I suffered any virus problems of significance while protected by AVG. Its signatures are frequently updated.

Cons

Reviews tell me there are products with a higher detection rate.

Summary

Its easy to use and, as far as I can tell, effictive.

First of all it is very easy to install and the fact that it is free did not cause a compromise on quality. Of course I also like the protection which it offers.

"Works well......and free!!!"

March 12, 2008  |  By car2dlr1

 |  Version: AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition 7.5.516

Pros

Tired of the right to update virus definitions expiring with costly software, and you can't beat the price, and self updating and installation of latest virus definitions, makes it maintenance free.
