Even if AVG is a free antivirus, it is as efficient as any paid antivirus that can protect you from viruses, spyware, rootkits and spam.



Key features

It offers you a beautiful interface equipped with modules like Linkscanner, e-mail protection or anti-rootkit. It ensures your protection when you are online. It is an extra layer that aims at checking your search results and web links. In addition to the three scan types, full scan, selected files and folder, and anti-rootkit, this feature also allows you to scan your system or to update the virus database.

The best part about AVG free is that it sits in your system tray and does not disturb you with warning windows or update messages. It can inform you about services that track you when you are online. Then, it lets you decide what to do: to allow or to block them.

My son has this & it has worked excellent! so i Decided to use it,
I recently updated my free AVG to the avg2013, from this point i could no longer dowlnload any files even from safe sites. It always started the download and then stopped and said the file had a virus and was deleted. After many weeks of frustration, and researching I have found the problem. I had to delete all the AVG files in my C:\programfiles\avg. As soon as I did this everything is working a ok.

I would think avg would be aware of this and have a patch or remedy. I have had no problem with avg up till now. Considering another option at this point
