"Tried to delete my system32"

October 11, 2014  |  By CanHandletheTruth

 |  Version: AVG Internet Security 2015 2015.0.5315

Pros

The old version was good.

Cons

Intrusive, now it blocks all your programs from responding. Had to launch task manager to disable startup and restart to remove.

"NOT FOR ANYONE TECH SAVVY ENOUGH TO WANT BACKUPS!"

September 23, 2014  |  By E-71

 |  Version: AVG Internet Security 2015 2015.0.5315

Pros

Light-weight in comparison to to many alternatives.

Cons

Since version 2013, they removed the import/export feature meaning we can no longer backup firewall/antivirus rules/settings. AVG installer clears all settings without warning!!

Summary

AVG staff claim they're now going for a fully automated firewall -- in other words they're now targeting novice users with very low expectations.
If you want to create detailed firewall rules or specify which applications can/cannot access the internet, you'll have to painstakingly re-enter each and every rule every time you update the software (eg. from an earlier 2014 release to the latest 2014 release or from version 2014 to 2015).
No import/export feature plus the flushing of your settings on update -- I'm tempted to label their software as malicious.
I've been using AVG since the Grisoft days (v6.0) and my honest recommendation is for you to stay away from them unless you're not going to change (m)any settings.
