    "Virus Free for 8 Months"

    February 27, 2006  |   By Big_Mr_Mac

    Version: AVG AntiVirus Free 2015 7.1.375

    Pros

    I had used the IE Virus to surf the web for the most of 8 years. I always wondered why Norton and McAfee couldn't keep my systems safe. I have been using AVG and Mozilla Firefox for 8 months with no viruses. AVG is smaller, not as intrusive as the other Anti-Virus systems, and it is a simple staight-forward user friendly design.

    Cons

    I have NO complaints about AVG

    "Better than sliced bread"

    February 26, 2006  |   By mork671

    Version: AVG AntiVirus Free 2015 7.1.375

    Pros

    Very easy to use. Updates are free. Does the job well. Didn't slow my system down, like norton's did. A must for the person that dosent like to pay for a program.

    Cons

    Would like to see some diffrent skins for it.

    "Almost too good to be free!"

    February 25, 2006  |   By Classic 1957

    Version: AVG AntiVirus Free 2015 7.1.375

    Pros

    All antivirus software you pay bucks for should work as well as this. The user interface is easy to use and understand. When scans are scheduled, you hardly notice they are running, unlike other RAM intensive AV programs. Great software all the way around!

    Cons

    Works so well free that you hate to fork over the dough for the upgrade but it's worth it.

    "Missed major Trojan Horse"

    February 25, 2006  |   By dr.rd

    Version: AVG AntiVirus Free 2015 7.1.375

    Pros

    Used the program for over a year with no problems.

    FREE!!

    Easy to use

    Cons

    Could not find or remove Trojan Horse that filled hard drive with garbage. Norton picked it up with 3 others and removed. Sometimes you just get what you pay for.

    "great program!"

    February 25, 2006  |   By martinw1200

    Version: AVG AntiVirus Free 2015 7.1.375

    Pros

    This program takes you back, five years or so, when antivirus programs just did their antivirus thing and stayed out of your way. Now we get all these ridiculous gimmicks intended to justify high price tags.

    AVG is free and takes care of the antivirus routine without making itself obnoxious. It's got very regular updates to its virus definitions.

    I'm not sure how they do this for free. I hope a lot of people are buying their other software!

    "Perfect if you don't want to WASTE your hard earnd $ on bs progs like norton"

    February 24, 2006  |   By mcki0154

    Version: AVG AntiVirus Free 2015 7.1.375

    Pros

    no annual subscription fees, no junkmail, no cost,

    Why waste 50-80$ on a norton/kasperky/panda/mcaffe anti-virus that expires in a year??????

    I bought norton,and b/c of my numerous sys crashes I could no longer use my PURCHASED prog b/c of TOO many intallations!!!!! Complete and total BS!!!!!!!!!!!!1

    Cons

    can't schedule autoscanns, doesn't catch malicious appelets (kasperky does,but $$$), not good for SUPER high risk sites (seriall.com for example, installs automatic malicious trojan applelet!!!)

    "It is an AWESOME FREE virus program!"

    February 24, 2006  |   By Headspin

    Version: AVG AntiVirus Free 2015 7.1.375

    Pros

    It takes up far less memory than Norton, or other virus software, and works far better. If you do not want to spend any money on your virus software, this is the road to take.

    Cons

    It is ONLY virus software. It scans, and oversees your computer. There is not a lot to it. But, hey, IT'S FREE!

    "It's not bad, but not great."

    February 24, 2006  |   By Tomcatjjr

    Version: AVG AntiVirus Free 2015 7.1.375

    Pros

    It found or stopped some viruses. I don't want to be too hard on AVG as it was my somewhat faithful companion for awhile, however read the cons:

    Cons

    It is slow on the draw. It would tell me after the virus was done installing on my computer, that a virus was found. Gee, thanx for the heads up. Too little too late. Not a good real time program. Just get AVAST anti-virus and never worry again. The best real time protection on the Planet. Trust me. AVAST even pops up sometimes if you goto a really bad website that has malicious intentions so you can exit before damage is done! Now that is real-time protection. Get AVAST now. You won't be disappointed!!!
