    "Highly Recommended + It's Free!"

    February 2, 2006  |   By getjef

    Version: AVG AntiVirus Free 2014 7.289

    Pros

    I have introduced this most excellent AV program to my work place and we have already begun switching over from McAfee to AVG on all our desktops and laptops.

    I've been able to detect and rid employees' work PCs of infections and have been absolutely 100% satisfied!

    I also happen to use it at home and simply love everything about it. It checks incoming email, updates definitions & scans my system frequently and automatically.

    Cons

    There are no cons.

    "Great anti-virus and it's FREE!"

    February 2, 2006  |   By i-Firefox

    Version: AVG AntiVirus Free 2014 7.289

    Pros

    1) Computer's with low RAM, like say, only 256 MB or below, should use AVG. It hardly slows down pc startup unlike Norton or other commercial anti-viruses.

    2) For those who have heard that Avast! is better, well maybe but I find Avast!'s full system scans to be terribly slow. It took me more than an hour to complete a full scan with Avast! On the other hand, AVG only took about 25 minutes and it doesn't use too much RAM during these scans too so I can do something else like web browsing without being slowed down.

    3) There's no technical support for this free edition but at least there's a forum. Better than Norton which doesn't even have a forum, right?

    4) Has about all the features you'll need in an anti-virus.

    5) Super fast updating. Updates are frequent too.

    6) Efficient automatic updating (I have Norton on another PC and it's slow to automatically update- if there's any).

    7) Here's a nice one, AVG has a feature called Rescue Disk Wizard. The Rescue Disk lets you scan and clean files on your pc while in MS-DOS mode (at the command prompt). It's useful if your system area has been infected.

    8) It's free.

    Cons

    1) For IM users, AVG doesn't have any IM protection, hopefully there will be in the future.

    2) AVG doesn't have a firewall together with it like Norton or PC-Cillin but it's free, remember? And if you want Norton or PC-Cillin, you'll have to dig into your wallet. So, you choose yourself. Sides, there's quite a few free firewalls out there. In fact, there's lots of free software that provides features commercial software charge you for, especially in the anti-spyware market.
