"The Best In less resource usage"

March 24, 2012  |  By shahriar_mohammad

 |  Version: AVG Internet Security 2012 2012.0.1913

Pros

1. The interface seems easy!.
2. Scans doesn't take take all the resource thanks to the switch to use user-sensitive and high priority.

Cons

1. It could have been better if they had better detection rates, But still worth it.

Summary

Not the Best in market, but if AVG tries to give more detection on viruses, it can be better

"AVG -American Vintage Garbage"

February 11, 2012  |  By MOTHER-nostromo

 |  Version: AVG Internet Security 2012 2012.0.1913

Pros

Great Cartoonist the artistic work I give two thumbs up

Cons

Too many to list

Summary

AVG- American Vintage Garbage:
1) It's like Building your dream home with Pre-Schools Nail and Hammer set.
2)Patching your basement floor with Playdough,
3) You got a job need a car- so you go buy a Revell plastic model. Yeeeeeah,
I explained my tech side of Antivirus and someone once said what does that mean? So here I give it to you in simple terminology I have been on the web since the day Windows-95 was released. I'm an Old fart, TRUST ME Please, AVG is putting your machines in harms way on the World Wide Web, The web is Real and has real life dangers. You need a prison fence around your machine, not Bounty paper towels --that's a fact! Would you leave your front door unlocked if you lived @ East St. Louis, Illinois.

"Firewall is useless. Don't upgrade from version 9"

February 04, 2012  |  By art2525

 |  Version: AVG Internet Security 2012 2012.0.1913

Pros

Better than Symantec

Cons

Firewall blocks everything randomly. I have to turn it off. some protection! No email Support. Only chat or phone. Tried chat - no agents available. Tried AVG forum. Takes 3 logons to get to it, then it fails.

Summary

I've had paid versions of AVG for years. This one seemed ok, until the firewall decides to randomly block internet access completely - especially if it's pushed hard. It's disabled right now, just to get on the internet. Support is non-existent and useless. Website is poor.

Updated on Mar 3, 2012

Now that I've had it awhile... DONT UPGRADE FROM 9
When I do a search, I right click, open in new tab, many pages. This allows them to load, and I then start reviewing to see if they have what I look for.
AVG Firewall will block access to the internet, when you do this.
You have to set to allow all - per support. Don't know if it works, but if it's allow all - what good is it ?

No email support. Tried chat support. There is usually 5 to 7 minutes between responses. Clearly the person is working multiple customers at the same time and can't keep up.
