    Version: AVG AntiVirus Free 2015 7.1.375

    Pros

    It's a very good software, it advices you not to download something infected the moment you click download on a site, and tells you if a file infected have been downloaded from a P2P network.

    Cons

    I can't find any cons on it.

    "Won't even know its there"

    March 10, 2006  |   By jimbobjimmy

    Version: AVG AntiVirus Free 2015 7.1.375

    Pros

    I can't believe people pay money for anti virus software when this one is free. AVG free does everything, and whats more, unlike some similar programs, you won't even know its doing it. Top protection at the low low price of... well, you get the idea.

    Cons

    none

    "FREE, EASY AND PROVIDES EXCELLENT PROTECTION!"

    March 10, 2006  |   By Ted135

    Version: AVG AntiVirus Free 2015 7.1.375

    Pros

    AVG Free Edition includes a virus scanner and a firewall. With very frequent updates, you can assure your computer is protected. With the easy use of AVG Free, you can quickly and simply use AVG Free without problems. After for using for many months, it has detected/blocked 7 viruses. These were detected/blocked when i first started using AVG Free edition. Until know, i have my computer well protected, only have the 1 virus sneak through every month(which is only a low warning virus and detected by Ad-Aware SE Personal). Although it was worth it, since some of those viruses it deleted actually rang expensive phone numbers, in other words giving you a large phone bill. Another feature of AVG Free is that it uses low memory, so it can run smoothly on slow computers. Another useful feature is automatic updates. This feature will ensure that you can download updates as soon as they are released.

    Cons

    Although the very frequent updates may be useful, it can get annoying especially for us people on dial-up. Every time i go on the Internet i update AVG Free. Which can get annoying, but the updates are small and you are protected against the latest threats. And why does the AVG Free Edition scan have to be so slow! It takes about half an hour to run a full system scan, which is poor compared to Ad-Aware SE Personal clocking in at around 6-7minutes. But there is a solution to that...do NOT run AVG Free edition scans, there is no point. Simply have Ad-Aware SE Personal(a very good free virus scanner) installed on your computer and whilst running a full system scan with Ad-aware, AVG Free will actually work with Ad-Aware and a pop-up message will appear if AVG Free detects the current file Ad-aware is scanning as a virus. So when you first get AVG Free, run a full system scan with it, then just use Ad-Aware SE Personal. So with these negatives, thats why it gets 4/5 stars.(Ad-Aware SE Personal and Spybot-Search&Destroy are also highly recommended!)

    "Excellent program, i recommed it!"

    March 9, 2006  |   By rush-o

    Version: AVG AntiVirus Free 2015 7.1.375

    Pros

    This is a FREE antivirus program that is one of the reasons i like this program. It also has many great Virus removing options, scans, and many other features. There are always updates available for the most uptodate protection against viruses. It warns you right away with a box that says you have a virus, what would u like to do with it, and it is user-friendly, the average person would enjoy it! And its FREE...

    Cons

    The use of memory is an issue, it would help if this program can use less pc memory.

    "Beats the rest"

    March 7, 2006  |   By Albert Ko

    Version: AVG AntiVirus Free 2015 7.1.375

    Pros

    This could be the best free anti-virus software around. You might think about Avast, but it's kinda ineffective and memory hog. AVG does not take up much memory, and it scans lightning fast.

    FASTER THAN ANY OTHER PAID SOFTWARE!!

    Furthermore, there are always update for it, although it is free.

    Cons

    I do have to agree with some others that its interface is kind of old-fashion Windows 95 style.

    But who cares?

    "Stick with AVG"

    March 6, 2006  |   By franklinmaharaj

    Version: AVG AntiVirus Free 2015 7.1.375

    Pros

    It's free, and it can take care of a few viruses.

    Cons

    The real time protection did cause my computer to seriously crash, even though it does not take up too much memory. I would rate this product much higher if it wern't for AVG, which has a much better virus scan and real time scanning

    "AVG-Good&Free....=)"

    March 3, 2006  |   By TufenHuden

    Version: AVG AntiVirus Free 2015 7.1.375

    Pros

    Free edition is a great AV program-

    it's has virus updates all the time-

    not 2x a month but at least once a day,

    most of the time-and it does catch-Virus's,

    better with Norton-maybe AVG free doesn't

    give you tech support-at least it has a fourm-another secret to removing virus's

    do a can in safe mode-good chance-you will-

    get rid of you problem-Norton's I paid for and if I wanted any Tech support-unless it has changed recently-you had to pay for it.

    Cons

    Interface is dated a bit but the vers-6

    was really outdated-but hey for free you can't beat it...And renember it's freeware...=).Another thing the Virus vault-wish had more options to clean or

    delete virus defenitions...I still give a

    *****even the cons included....
