    "O.K. but watch those firewall settings."

    February 6, 2013  |   By fishnet555

    Pros

    Seems to catch everything except a few trojans, maybe that's been fixed.

    Cons

    Like all virus programs takes too long during boot-up before it allows access to normal computer operation. I know this is necessary but it always makes me go GRRRRR!

    Summary

    After initial firewall problems it seems to be O.K. and doing its job without too much interference to my normal computer operations.
    The interface screen has become less complicated, but must be studied to get the most out of the protection offered.

    Those firewall settings will be automatically cleared without warning the next time you run one of their installers. The geniuses at AVG decided to take away both our ability to import/export settings AND the installer's ability to preserve settings between updates.
