AVG Free 9 gives free ID protection

Currently the most popular program on Download.com by a long shot, this First look video of AVG Free 9 shows how it strengthens its security offerings by integrating LinkScanner and adding free ID protection for U.S. users.

We reviewed the latest version of AVG Free back in October 2009, and found it to be a decent successor to the previous version, 8.5. AVG Free 9 is currently the most popular app on Download.com by a long shot, and this version bolsters its security offerings with the integrated LinkScanner and free identity protection for users in the United States.

Though it's true that in recent third-party testing AVG has been surpassed by several competitors, it remains a viable and effective security option that you're far better off using compared with many lesser-known suites or nothing at all.
