AVG AntiVirus Free Edition is security software which is used to protect the computer against potential risks.

AVG AntiVirus Free Edition is very reliable and effective and allows the user a fast detection process, even with the most recent threats thanks to the smart performance technology that the developer has integrated in this antivirus.
Complete and updated version
One of the best things about this program is its ease of use and simple installation process. The antivirus is able to start running in your PC as soon as you installed it and it silently integrates on the system.
In addition, it works without displaying any annoying message which can interfere with the tasks you are carrying out. For example, this antivirus has two main characteristics. Firstly, it is a complete free version. Secondly, it is automatically updated. Therefore, it doesn’t present any message to encourage the user to buy the full pack or any update information.
On the other hand, its interface is pretty clear and intuitive and you can easily reach all the features that this antivirus provides. For instance, this program is able to scan your system in three different ways: full system, special folders or files or anti-rootkit. In addition, it allows you to schedule the scanning process a particular day and time.
Although you don’t need to pay to use, this software is good enough to compete with other paid programs such as Norton AntiVirus. It provides an effective protection and offers the same functionalities but you will have to pay if you need the complete version.

AVG AntiVirus Free Edition is one of the most versatile security free tools nowadays. Its free installment provides user with a full equip of protection tools. Although there are other interesting security free tools as Avast! or Avira, they are more intrusive and they show constantly undesirable messages on your screen. Many users complain about these intrusive actions, especially when they are not important alerts, most of them are just unnecessary advices or just advertisements.
Avast is probably the strongest competitor for AVG, it is very well know and has an intuitive interface as well. But its weakest point is that its most interesting features are on the paid version. The free installment is too simple and doesn’t include some of AVG Antivirus Free Edition most interesting features as protection against Wi Fi hacking or Linkscanner.
AVG Antivirus Free Edition is an efficient, fast and effective security program which shows that freeware are not synonym of low quality as they can be as good as paid software.
- Three scan options
- Frequent updates
- Works silently
- Intends to change browser settings during installation process
