AVG Antivirus 2017

AVG Technologies, one of the world’s best-known online-security companies, specialised in antivirus solutions for home-users and big businesses. Worldwide over 180 million people make use of the various software packages that AVG supplies.

This software giant introduces two security packages, the basic package “AVG Antivirus”, and the more business-oriented “AVG Internet Security”. Both packages offer the basic features in their range, but they most certainly do not shine. Both packages score below average when it comes to virus protection.

The software is well structured and does not require excessive resources from your computer. Total scans provoke little reduction in PC-performance. It should not cause problems to continue to use your PC while running a scan.

Summary

Pros

  • Clear interface, pretty easy to use
  • Little performance loss for your PC
  • Compatible with Windows 10

Cons

  • Virus protection is mediocre
  • Back-up functions are missing

Antivirus-protection

Antivirus-protection that is updated automatically to protect you consistently against new threats. As hackers develop new techniques, the AVG research labs continuously process web data in order to devise new defences to protect you automatically.

Gaming and surfing without interruptions

Go surfing and gaming without being disturbed. Scans are executed when you’re not at your PC. Our software also knows when you’re playing a game and makes sure the security will only be running in the background, so you can play without being bothered.

Surfing and searching safely on the Internet

You like to surf and search, but you absolutely want to avoid ending up on infected websites. AVG helps you by clearly warning you about threats and by steering you away from them.

Conclusion:

The software is pretty average. We’d like to see considerable improvements in protection! The antivirus has a lot of work to do to re-emerge at the top of the pack.
