Editors' Review

+

Though not as well-known as some competitors, this antivirus program offers rock-solid protection. AVG Anti-Virus Professional 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.

You'll find a full-blown scheduling utility for automating tasks and checking for new definitions as often as you'd like. Other perks found in this Pro version include technical support and the ability to run on multiple operating systems. 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 it always proved effective in our tests. The interface can't be described as beautiful, yet it is mostly simple to navigate.

Though the free version of this program will suffice for average folks, those who demand more control should certainly consider AVG Anti-Virus Professional.

"I have to admit it, "Grisoft" is smart in business!"

September 03, 2007  |  By Chainmail2006

 |  Version: AVG Anti-Virus Professional 7.5.503

Pros

Unfortunately, I have no pros to to offer for this anti virus application!

Cons

This application, released on 8-2-07 has no support for "Vista". As a publisher of enterprise solution software, "Grisoft" is smart enough to know that businesses have not, nor will most of them upgrade to "Vista" as an operating system for quite a while yet.. Their highly over rated free version is compatible with "Vista" because home users are buying new computers with "Vista" pre-installed. But this application at $38.95 leaves a lot to be desired. It lacks the shields found in "Avast Pro". It lacks the detection and removal capabilities in "AntiVir Premium" and "Kaspersky" and for a home user to invest in this product would be as foolish as foolish gets. If you are a home user looking to invest in an anti-virus software I recommend any of the others I mentioned over this one, big time! This application is not as good as some free anti-virus applications available to home users! It's hardly worth the time to download and install.
