    "It's the best."

    February 18, 2006  |   By blarggs

    Version: AVG AntiVirus Free 2015 7.1.375

    Pros

    I switched from NAV to AVG free because AVG is free and light on the system resources. My computer starts up faster now too. For me, AVG Free works just as good as Norton in terms of protection. Plus, it's lighter on the system resources like I mentioned earlier. It's updated pretty much daily and is very easy to use. I'm glad I made the switch.

    Cons

    There are none.

    "Try it :)"

    February 17, 2006  |   By Camille2006

    Version: AVG AntiVirus Free 2015 7.1.375

    Pros

    Look at this way, you have a free Anti-Virus protection that isn't going to corrupt your files by misleading you. It does what it says. If it says it works, it does. No doubt. I strongly recommend to buy this product, and get a hold of its maximum capabilities. Plus they offer a 2 year license anyway, so its worth every penny. Also, the updates come in small files sizes, so it doesn't take forever to download. Try it n then if you want, buy it.

    Cons

    There is no tech support for the free edition.

    "A good solution."

    February 16, 2006  |   By Jorlwind

    Version: AVG AntiVirus Free 2015 7.1.375

    Pros

    Its FREE

    The scans don't take forever, and it updates frequently.

    Good interface, Sheduling, and healing of infected files. Plus a good active protection, and it isn't bloated like Norton.

    Version 7 passed Virus Bulletin.(VB)

    Cons

    Unfortunately, the company doesn't have an excellent field record with VB, and thats something to consider, and the free version only lets you scan for 'infectible' files, rather then a full scan. and i've heard some complaints on how it doesn't scan archives very good.

    All In all, its still one of the best Free Virus scanners out there, and if you have nothing, pick this up.

    "Cant beat it for FREE"

    February 13, 2006  |   By Dude37

    Version: AVG AntiVirus Free 2015 7.289

    Pros

    After going through Panda hell, I just decided to install AVG free... It recommended a large update, and found a worm before it was even close to finishing the download... User interface could be figured out by a 5 year old

    "This product rocks"

    February 13, 2006  |   By taddzilla

    Version: AVG AntiVirus Free 2015 7.289

    Pros

    AVG free in my opinion is better than Norton or McAfee. It has a small footprint, and is not an invasive monster (read Norton). For a free anti-virus program, it can't be beat.

    Cons

    The user interface isn't pretty, but it does the job. I don't need a highly polished front end, if I know that the program is going to do what it says.
