    "Causes Windows to improperly shutdown"

    December 19, 2004  |  

    Version: AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition 7.289

    Summary

    I used Ver 6.0 on my Windows 98 OS for a long time and was very happy with it. After being forced to "upgrade" to 7.0, now my system shuts down improperly every time and it has to run Scan Disk before booting back up. This never happened with 6.0. I uninstalled their "new and improved" version and the problem went away. I do NOT recommend "upgrading" to 7.0. If you're using 6.0 on Windows 98 and are asked to upgrade, just uninstall their software and find another product. Don't waste your time.

    "Doesn't get all viruses"

    December 19, 2004  |  

    Version: AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition 7.289

    Summary

    As an earlier reviewer mentioned, if the software doesn't get rid of viruses, what's the point? AVG Free FOUND a virus but didn't do anything about it. I am having to download something else to get rid of it.

    "Even better"

    December 19, 2004  |   By 808

    Version: AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition 7.289

    Summary

    I've been using AVG 6.0 for a few years now and always like grisoft products. Installed the new AVG 7.0 and it's even better. Finally it scans my e-mails through my e-mail client called Bloomba. I love the new features in this and what's best is that it runs quicker.
    In order to have a good clean system have a 1.)Firewall - Agnitum Outpost, 2.) Secured Browser - FireFox and 3.) Anti-Virus - AVG. If you have all those and avoid opening attachments, especially in Outlook , and using IE, your system should be clean!

    Version: AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition 7.289

    Summary

    I upgraded to AVG 7 from 6 last month and I've been very happy. It seems sluggish compared to AVG 6 but it's very effective, and beat the snot out of Norton. I have recommended it to all my friends.
