    "Cheat you on the time they claim you have to buy"

    November 1, 2012  |   By MGJams

    Version: AVG AntiVirus Free 2013 2013.0.2742

    Pros

    It loaded fine but soon it was not working properly.

    Cons

    I upgraded for free for 30 days after I downloaded their AVG Antivirus Free 2013. It went fine except they claimed I was getting 30 days free trial,, well after about three hours it jumped to 29 days and I had also downloaded their Speedtest and it worked for about two hours then took away the rest of the One day they had promised for it. I'm not sure AVG is a company anyone should try unless you want to be ripped off. There was also no way until you pay for it to make a complaint, so here I am complaining! If they can't keep their word no one should trust them enough to purchase.

    "Within my top 4 antivirus programs"

    November 1, 2012  |   By Jexthoth

    Version: AVG AntiVirus Free 2013 2013.0.2742

    Pros

    Excellent coverage, slightly faster scans, darker and less blinding interface and what appears to be more frequent updates. Bested only by AVAST.

    Cons

    I have used it before and I can`t find a problem, but still not quite the best.

    Summary

    Try it with MBAM

    "2013 Causes Win 7 Boot Hang-ups EVERY TIME!!"

    October 27, 2012  |   By websterphreaky

    Version: AVG AntiVirus Free 2013 2013.0.2742

    Pros

    Best Root-Kit detection rates and that's ALL! No other Pros!

    Cons

    Since the upgrade from 2012 Free to 2013, it cause Windows 7 Ultimate Boot Hang-ups NEARLY EVERY TIME! It interferes with Boot completion just after the Desktop is loaded! CRAP! Uninstalled it and no problems! Interface sucks, they've stripped off more free features than 2012 had, and it's TOO invasive! Good bye AVG Free!

    Summary

    I've switched to Avira after using AVG Free for the last 5 years and having recommended them to my IT Residential Clients. While Avira has obnoxious Advert Popups, at least it doesn't CRASH Windows 7 32 or 64! You screwed the Pooch AVG, you got some 'splaining to do AVG Lucy Boys!! BTW Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + Sucks too.
