    An average-to-good program, which has not given me any problems so far.

    Karsten
    09/12/2018

    I'm not sure yet whether I'll carry on using the program.

    Julia
    08/12/2018

    So far I can't report anything positive or negative. I think I should try the program for a while.

    Nora
    07/12/2018

    I don't know whether I'd prefer to go back to my previous program.

    You can get a better programs for just little more money.

    I don't know whether I should keep the software on my computer or not. I just don't know my way around.

    Jamie
    04/12/2018

    To be honest, I am torn apart by the software and its functions.

    Charly
    03/12/2018

    I only had to call a staff member once, and found them friendly and professional.

    Jerome
    02/12/2018

    I have never had any problems when surfing, and I feel relatively safe.

    Brian
    01/12/2018

    I still see adverts sometimes when I surf the Internet.

  • Freya

    The software is a bit more resource-hungry when actively using it. But I can carry on working undisturbed.

    Rosa
    29/11/2018

    Sometimes dropped frames occur when playing games. I can't say whether this is due to the software.

    Julian
    28/11/2018

    I consider the price-performance ratio only average.

    William
    27/11/2018

    The software is updated automatically , even if the updates don't come very often.

    Alexa
    26/11/2018

    There are definitely more user-friendly programs, but I am still happy.

  • Robert
    25/11/2018

    The available functions are sufficient in any case.

    Laurence
    24/11/2018

    It sometimes takes a rather long time for the program to run. Of course, this might also be due to my old computer.

    Jordan
    23/11/2018

    On the whole, the virus detection works reliably. Sometimes the software seems a little slow to me.

    Haiko
    22/11/2018

    There is barely any system load and my computer performance remains almost identical.

    Steffen
    21/11/2018

    It takes a couple of minutes for the software to be installed and ready for use.

Real-time protection

AVG real-time protection starts automatically when Windows is started and constantly runs in the background of the operating system. The software automatically detects threats and removes them immediately. Thanks to regular updates in real-time the AVG virus definitions are always up to date and the software can even detect new threats. AVG can even proactively identify undocumented malware through advanced artificial intelligence. The program automatically scans connected USB sticks, external hard drives and removable media and blocks access in the event of a threat.

 

Through the integrated mail protection, hazardous attachments in emails are automatically blocked and cannot cause any damage. The web protection scans all downloaded files and prevents infection. Thanks to the link scanner, users will no longer end up on harmful websites. The advanced firewall reliably protects the user’s privacy and works both in wireless and wired networks. The firewall can be set individually and has powerful automatic functions. Thanks to malware protection, users always have complete control of which programs and apps have access to their files.

Safe surfing

The comprehensive online protection from AVG automatically scans downloads and links in real-time and protects users against unsafe WLAN spots. The WiFi Guard prevents connections to unsafe WLAN networks. Thanks to the web-based protection, harmful files cannot infiltrate PCs. Users can remove hazardous extensions and toolbars in their browser using the Toolbar Remover. TheLink Scanner prevents access to hazardous websites and even works in social networks.

Users can surf safely through the internet and don’t have to be afraid of infections thanks to the AVG anti-virus program. Scams and spam are automatically blocked by the software and fake websites can no longer access user data. Secure VPN protects internet activities with bank-compliant 256 bit AES-encryption. This guarantees secure online banking and shopping. The additional firewall protects the users against harmful attacks from networks or the internet. Phishing emails do not land on the computer and hackers cannot change the DNS settings.

Performance

Even though AVG has a huge range of features, the software hardly strains the computer. The intelligent real-time protection may run permanently in the background of the operating system, yet has a barely perceptible effect on computer performance. The anti-virus software is very modest in practice and only needs a very small amount of memory. AVG is only somewhat noticeable when the user does a manual complete system scan. Nevertheless, many programs and apps can be used at the same time without any big impacts on performance. .The anti-virus program works on older computers with weaker hardware as well.

Special Features

In addition to the many known standard functions, AVG also has special additional functions and stands out from the masses thanks to these features. The software can be installed and used on any number of devices. Those who buy the anti-virus program can also install a mobile security app on their Android device and benefit from comprehensive protection against threats.

 

Through the Ransomware protection, all personal files, such as documents or photos, are protected against malicious encryption. Users can store particularly sensitive files and hide them from others in the Data Safe . Any files that are no longer needed can be reliably deleted with the File Shredder. After that these files can no longer be restored. Thewebcam protection ensures that third parties cannot spy on you through your webcam.

User-friendliness

AVG is distinguished by a high level of user-friendliness. The software is available in full in English and can be quickly downloaded and installed on a computer. The AVG software has a clear interface with intuitive operation. The most important functions work automatically. The anti-virus program runs on all Windows versions from XP up and on Macintosh computers OS X 10.8 and higher.
