    "What A Misleading Trap, Shame On You !"

    May 4, 2014  |   By spawn05

    Version: AVG AntiVirus 2013 2014.0.4577

    Pros

    Small Foot print, works great, been around for many a year.

    Cons

    You have to accept an offer from select merchants to get it for free. SO where is the free aspect of it! Once upon a time it was really free. Like Last Year for the 2013 version.

    Summary

    Stay away from antiviruses that make you buy something to be free.

    "Bait and Switch NOT FREE -- TRIAL ONLY"

    February 18, 2014  |   By hubbasu

    Version: AVG AntiVirus 2013 2014.0.4335

    Pros

    * have used for years and haven't had problems
    * reviews of many say it's one of the best

    Cons

    * they are now CHARGING for what used to be free and still advertising it as free. Am going to go to Ad-Aware. They are just as good and do offer a free version.

    Summary

    Don't download it unless you are looking to pay to upgrade once the trial expires.

    "Hard to Shake"

    January 7, 2014  |   By mickmiller1945

    Version: AVG AntiVirus 2013 2014.0.4259

    Pros

    Free and that's the best I can say

    Cons

    Uninstall poor at best. Slowed my system

    Summary

    The uninstall wouldn't uninstall. There are still pieces after I tried AVG uninstall which conveniently crashed each attempt, Windows uninstall and another uninstall program and none completely removed the program.

    "Free version - fairly satisfactory"

    December 4, 2013  |   By colinito

    Version: AVG AntiVirus 2013 2014.0.4259

    Pros

    Appears to dtect most viruses etc .

    Cons

    Had problem with "Conduit Browser - My Start."
    Not detected by AVG Free 2014.

    Over 500 'items' conduit-related were subsequently discovered and deleted by Malwarebytes.

    (Not sure if "Conduit" is a virus or malware, but it certaimly hacked my Google browser and woyuld not be deleted by normal means and with AVG.)

    Summary

    Recommended - but only in conjunction with another, as my experience with "conduit" shows.

    "WORST SOFTWARE IN EXISTENCE"

    October 18, 2013  |   By EmployeeNumberSeven

    Version: AVG AntiVirus 2013 9.0.663

    Pros

    Well... let's see... none.

    Cons

    When I uninstalled it, due to the fact that it's useless and awkward as hell, it closed my browser. Excuse me, I had about 30 tabs open with unsaved data in them. Please go and rot in a hole.

    Summary

    I hate it with a passion.

    "Terrible product"

    October 12, 2013  |   By conejito123

    Version: AVG AntiVirus 2013 2014.0.4116

    Pros

    None that I can see.

    Cons

    Totally slowed down the load time of Windows 7, and I have an SSD for speed! I ran circles before I uninstalled this JUNK, and then my computer came back to normal. Google around the AVG forums and you will see I am not the only one. Too bad.

    "This product IS the slowdown factor !!!"

    September 16, 2013  |   By bigsur2hilo

    Version: AVG AntiVirus 2013 2014.0.4116

    Pros

    Currently, nothing I would recommend with this 2014 version.

    Cons

    Had 5 diff computers over last 7 years & each time it SEEMS as if my comp slowed down BIGTIME, but only AFTER Avg was loaded onto my comp. I got rid of AVG &went with another product & my comp has sailed along beautifully. AVG used to be really great, but the last few updates/products they've put out seemed out of whack somehow.

    Summary

    The AVG Ant-Virus 2014 edition is like a Hoover vacuum ... it sucks!
