    "Good enough not to change"

    January 3, 2006  |   By teller

    Version: AVG AntiVirus Free 2014 7.289

    Pros

    Intuitive for the user, doesn't skip an e-mail before opening, discret in its work, very fast and efective during updatings.

    "A Anti-Virus which really works."

    January 2, 2006  |   By sony_abhijeet

    Version: AVG AntiVirus Free 2014 7.289

    Pros

    It is one of a kind software. due to some trojans, i wasn't able to run norton, mc afee, spyware doctor, bug doctor and many more. the best names in anti-virus field failed in front of this trojan. AVG removed all these trojans in it first scan. my computer is back to normal.

    the best part about the software is:

    1)Frequent Updates

    2)Good Detection of Viruses, Trojans,Spyware

    3)It is for free

    4)Much faster than Norton, Mc Afee

    5)Can run silently in the back without disturbing the user.

    in a nutshell, a must for every computer

    Cons

    it should have a better Graphic User Interface. it should look nice to the eyes. it can be a little confusing for a novice.

    "CRAP!! and full of viruses"

    January 1, 2006  |   By kandy21

    Version: AVG AntiVirus Free 2014 7.289

    Pros

    none that i could find

    Cons

    well where do i begin 1. it doesnt not pick up even a 1/4 of the viruses that are out there 2. it is full of viruses and adware and spyware 3. when and if it does pick up viruses it doesnt actually delete them nor does it pick many of them up.... my last computer had AVG on it thought it was picking them up until i went and got NOD32 well it picked up 40 viruses and 36 adware and spyware,,,and ten adware and spyware were found in AVG along with 4 viruses,,,really a crap program what ever you do dont get it and if you have it get rid of it and go to NOD32 believe me AVG is no good for you or you're computer

    "Excellent product!"

    December 30, 2005  |   By SadaAesix

    Version: AVG AntiVirus Free 2014 7.289

    Pros

    I had Norton System Works and MCAfee on my personal comp at home and at work. I suspected at work and at home that my comps were both infected but neither Norton or MCAfee would find anything. I downloaded and ran AVG and it found the problems immediately. I am thankful to find a product that works like AVG does. It means more to me then anything to remain productive at home and work and thanks to Grissoft, I think it will not be a problem anymore.

    Cons

    There seems to be no cons for me with this product.

    "Great software"

    December 30, 2005  |   By shoemakerbarry

    Version: AVG AntiVirus Free 2014 7.289

    Pros

    Easy to use and it's free. I used to pay for anti-virus and still had troubles with my machine. I now use zonealarm free verison, AVG Antivirus protection and run the Microsoft Antispyware software on my XP machine and I've not experianced any troubles in 2005! Thanks AVG!

    Cons

    Not one bad thing to say

    "VERY UGLY AND BAD!!!"

    December 30, 2005  |   By KoreanPimp

    Version: AVG AntiVirus Free 2014 7.289

    Pros

    NO PROS WHATSOEVER!!!!!!

    Cons

    A LOT TO TELL YOU!

    1.UGLY INTERFACE

    2.NOT USER FRIENDLY AT ALL

    3.NOT MUCH OF ANY DETECTION

    4.NO FIREWALL

    5.SLOW SYSTEM START-UP(EVEN ON 512MB RAM COMPUTER)

    THIS IS THE WORST ANTIVIRUS EVER CREATED!!!

    IF YOU WANT SOMETHING FREE, I WOULD RECCOMEND THE ANTIVIR ANTIVIRUS.

    TO FIND THAT PROGRAM, TYPE "ANTIVIR" ON THE SEARCH TAB ON DOWNLOAD.COM

    "I've been using it for over a year and its been working wonderfully!"

    December 28, 2005  |   By aliasaid

    Version: AVG AntiVirus Free 2014 7.289

    Pros

    -not a resource hog like many other AVs.

    -FREE

    -not much more i can say but that i haven't had a virus for over a year (since i got this)... but of course i use it with a firewall.. i used the firewall in SP2, but now i have hardware, i disabled that. works well in conjunction with a firewall and keeps all the baddies out.

    Cons

    none that i can think of.. i don't play around with this program much, i haven't needed to.
