AVG continues to deliver essential free antivirus protection with the launch of AVG AntiVirus FREE 2015. It goes beyond simply detecting and removing viruses on your PC by blocking infected links as you browse, checking files before they're downloaded, and helping protect your personal data online and on your PC with enhanced privacy features. With 2015, we've improved our core engine and its accuracy, and included a new cloud-based detection method. And because we know that security is just as important as usability, AntiVirus Free 2015 features a revamped, easier-to-use design.
We've been hard at work optimizing our core engine to increase its detection accuracy. That includes better detection of screen-locker ransomware and improved scanning of all downloadable files to keep you safe from an exponentially expanding pool of threats.
And when a new online threat breaks out and spreads, the key to keeping you protected is the speed with which we can react. Our new Outbreak Detection gives us the tools to act immediately and curtail their spread. With AntiVirus Free 2015, you don't have to wait until the next virus-definition package is ready to be protected: the moment we know a threat's there, you're covered.
Finally, we believe security should be clean and simple to be effective, and we've put a lot of work in making sure AntiVirus Free 2015 is intuitive to use. Our new simplified design makes sure you know what needs your attention at a glance. Combined with our free comprehensive online support, you can be sure you're getting our best protection.
