Editors' review

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

    "Started using as free edition some . Prompt alarming."

    July 07, 2014   |   By fotobarje

    Version: AVG AntiVirus 2014 2014.0.4716

    Pros

    It is necessary to update manually now and then, as only the virus list updates automatically.

    Cons

    Seems that it detects false malware some keygen or similar. In this case there is a tool for cleaning, which seems to work perfect.

    Summary

    Free version sufficient for home use. Recommended.
