AVG Anti Virus

There are many antivirus programs that you can choose from to keep your computer safe from viruses. Some work better than others and some cost more than others. Just because one program is more popular than others doesn't mean it does a better job and it's a good idea to do your research before choosing an antivirus program for your computer. And just because it came pre-installed on your computer doesn't necessarily mean it's a quality program.

If you are looking for a cheap or free antivirus product for your computer then you may want to check out AVG Anti Virus. It has been around for many years and has a reputation for being an effective antivirus program. They have a version you can buy and a free version. The version you pay for has additional features such as:

  • Support of multiple languages
  • Access to guaranteed high-speed servers for downloading updates and program upgrades
  • Technical support via e-mail (24x7x365) provided by experienced anti-virus specialists
  • Options for configuring multiple program and test settings
  • The ability to create user-defined tests and schedules

Both versions provide the same protection against viruses. These are the main features of the AVG software:

  • Anti-Virus & Anti-Spyware Protection
  • Anti-Rootkit - Protection against hidden threats that deliver malicious content
  • Safe Downloads - Screens your downloads for malicious content
  • Safe Instant Messaging - Protects your ICQ and MSN communication
  • Safe Search - Safely click search results
  • Safe Surf - Real-time protection from poisoned web pages

Here you can see the difference in features between the free and pay for full Internet Security version.

When you purchase an AVG product, everything you need is included in the price for the full license duration - technical support, virus updates, and new program versions. All users of paid AVG products also qualify for discounts on subscription renewals and product upgrades. Just make sure when installing the program you uncheck any unnecessary items like toolbars or mailing list subscriptions
