- AVG AntiVirus Free Edition provides a reliable tool to protect your PC against many of today's viruses. AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition has both online and offline protection from viruses, spyware, and other nasties with consistent high-speed performance as well as automatic signature or virus definition updates to make sure you're current.
Malware protection at a price that can't be beaten.
In essence AVG Anti-Virus Free is the same as the paid version, but without a few inessential features, which makes it a pretty good product for the princely sum of $0.
Bear in mind that AVG Anti-Virus is not an all-in one computer protection package. Rather, it is only for anti-virus use, so without a firewall or antispam feature you will need to seek out other programs for full protection. This is a bit of an inconvenience, however it does mean that the software does not make heavy use of your computer's resources.
AVG Anti-Virus does offer excellent protection from the threats that it does cover. Also, if you use Internet Explorer or FireFox, the LinkScanner tool will give you advance warning of suspicious sites that may come up in search engine results.
The interface is nicely unobtrusive, without constant exhortations to upgrade. It will place a toolbar in your browser and ask to change your homepage, but both of these options are easy to disable.
Pros: Very close to paid version, very sparing on computer resources.
Cons: Only updates once daily, no support offered in the free version, anti-virus capabilities only.
Conclusion: While AVG Anti-Virus does its job well and LinkScanner is a welcome tool, it does not offer full protection for your computer. If all you are looking for is a free anti-virus tool then it is a must-have, but if you are looking for an all-in-one malware solution AVG Free is not for you.
Version reviewed: 12.0
AVG AntiVirus FREE is a fast, effective and extremely popular antivirus tool, mixing the best of AVAST and AVG's technology.
A stylish and appealing Windows 10 interface makes it easy to see the latest security status for various areas, with panels for 'Computer' and 'Web & Email' (there's also greyed out 'Hacker Attacks', 'Private Data' and 'Payments' which are modules in the paid-for AVG Internet Security 2019).
Each panel represents an aspect of AVG FREE's protection - antivirus, browsing protection, behavioural monitoring and email scanning - and you can click any of these to enable, disable or configure it to suit your needs.
You'll probably be more interested in checking your system for malware, though, and that's just as straightforward: click 'Scan Computer' and watch as the program goes to work.
If you need more control, click the gear icon next to 'Scan Computer' and you're able to check specific files or folders, run different scan types, or use the flexible scheduler to automatically run scans whenever you like.
Upgrading to AVG Internet Security gets you improved browsing protection, priority security updates, a smart firewall, spam filter, file encryption, a software update tool and much more.
