    "AVG 2015 free does not work"

    June 5, 2015  |   By mhappy01

    Version: AVG AntiVirus Free 2015 2015.0.5961

    Pros

    better than hemaroids unless you dont have a colon.

    Cons

    down load doesnt work - errors such as "driver install fail" or license key wrong. removal app doesnt work, reset access doesnt work. All this after removing all apps AVG isnt compatible with.

    Summary

    Kind of stunned now. AVG free has been part of my life for five years and its gone. Feels like my dogs been run over and i can't imagine what to replace him with. Any body got any suggestions for a working, reliable and free anti-virus app?

    "A once-great program goes down the toilet..."

    May 24, 2015  |   By schwaber

    Version: AVG AntiVirus Free 2015 2015.0.5961

    Pros

    There cannot be any when then program refuses (4 times, 2 downloads) to install!

    Cons

    Absolutely refuses to install with four tries over two different downloads, returning two different error messages (1 set for each of the two install downloads) .

    Summary

    It's been many years since I've had this much trouble installing a program (and I go back to the old DOS Command Line days...). The install program variously tells me that either there is simply an installation error or alternatively that the install code - which self-populates during the installation process - is incorrect; both errors were reported for each of the two downloads.

    It's sad to see a great old program enter its age of senility...

    "HORRIBLE PRODUCT & CUSTOMER SERVICE"

    May 22, 2015  |   By jeanneej

    Version: AVG AntiVirus Free 2015 2015.0.5961

    Pros

    None that I have experienced

    Cons

    Will not update, after searching and searching their website I finally found a phone number to which all I keep getting is someone that wants to remote into my computer, THAT IS NOT HAPPENING, and when I refused that sent me a link to Remove AVG and reinstall and the remover does not work AT ALL. called back again and again only option is to let them remote in and again that is not happening!!

    Summary

    I am not even using the free version I paid for this nonsense!!!! And it is more like I paid to put a virus on my computer and no one wants to fix the issue. Was told "a lot of customers are experiencing this issue" so that just tells me that is a rip off. Save your money go with a different anti virus because this one doesn't work regardless if you pay or not.

    "Buggy version"

    April 14, 2015  |   By drzyta

    Version: AVG AntiVirus Free 2015 2015.0.5863

    Pros

    It's an anti-virus and it works as such. It's also free.

    Cons

    Updater of the current version repeatedly cause problems with my Windows 7 computer. In order to prevent it from happening again and again I had to turn off automatic updater for AVG. So that now causes a different problem. When it's time for AVG to update itself and it can't update, instead of protecting computer real time with the older version of the software, it suspends itself and doesn't protect computer at all.

    Summary

    AVG have been my anti-virus of choice for many years, but now I am so frustrated with it that I am about to uninstall it and get something else instead.

    "works very efficiently with win 7 32 bit"

    April 12, 2015  |  

    Version: AVG AntiVirus Free 2015 2015.0.5863

    Pros

    AVG continues to provide light weight version of the program as well as the installer as compared to other antivirus products and this time the product is also very light on boot up.
    No slowing down of your pc even you are using slow end computer.
    It provides most of the features free of cost which are enough for a normal user including salient web security.
    Now AVG has a more user friendly appearance making it more attractive.
    The daily update are also very small enabling a slow net user to update daily without and trouble

    Cons

    AVG force you to change the default home page and search engine in your all browsers to one suggested by it. It also requests to install add-on for safe browsing but this generally results in slowing down browsing speed.

    Summary

    AVG has improved over the years and this time it all has a more user friendly and attractive user interface. It is light weight and since installation i have not found any problems caused by it. This time it is simply awesome and i would recommend it to everyone.

    "solid protection"

    March 21, 2015  |   By ChoiceVoice

    Version: AVG AntiVirus Free 2015 2015.0.5856

    Pros

    -the newest version of avg is very very light on boot up. and testing shows it runs very lite on system, and i can confirm that on my windows 7 64 bit. this is a considerable improvement over their product from a year ago.
    -fairly solid detection and cleaning according to labs (not the best, but very good)
    virusbullitin, last 11 of 12 tests avg had a vb100 award. av comparables gave avg an advanced + rating, thats the hightest. in denis labs they passed, but not hightest grade. so they had lots and lots of tests done and came out pretty high overall.
    -avgs web protection is excellent, and now fairly hidden/silent unless something malicious occurs.

    Cons

    -i've never been very good with spam detectors, and am unsure if it helps much.
    -not a fan of registry cleaners as part of av solutions. but that seems to be the trend now a days. during install, you don't need to select it if you don't want it ... just do a custom install.

    Summary

    still one of the best av companies around. solid protection, and lite on system. and company is respectable. product is constantly tested in labs, and the engine is their own (they didn't just shell a bitdefender engine like manhy asian avs freq. do).

    Updated on Mar 21, 2015

    oops, i was referring to the avg pro/paid version in my review. everything is same in free version but doesn't have spam filter.
