Pros: It protects the team from malicious viruses that damage our computers and then it is hard to replace them because of the high cost.

Protection to email and the web

Protection for USB or any external recordable device

Protection against hacker attacks

Protection of privacy

Protection to the family circle, when obtaining photos and private documents and not hacked from our equipment.

Security in mobile equipment, you can download the application for cell phones

Easy to install

Scanning of emails sent and received (including adding footers to emails that indicate it), the ability to "repair" some files infected by viruses

Cons: Can only be used at home, without commercial use

Does not include a "Game Mode" (silent detection)

Always show an ad to buy the professional version

The toolbar uninstaller does not work, but reinstalls the add-on if it is removed manually.

While it has regular updates, the paid version has more priority in downloading signatures for the latest viruses

You can not analyze units in the network in the work area, you have to make each computer and that means time consumption for the operator that runs it.

Overall: This software has been too valuable a tool for the security issue, keeps the electronic equipment always clean of malicious viruses, as well as family information, photos, documents, personal files and / or other tools will always be protected and will not be hacked. AVG will review Internet security programs, including periodic scans, scans of emails sent and received (including the addition of page attachments to emails indicating this), the ability to repair some virus-infected files, and a security vault virus, where the infected files are saved, a simile to a quarantine zone

Pros: I used to have McAfee but unfortunately it wasn't as effective as I had hoped. I do a lot of downloading and found my PC getting increasingly slower and slower until I discovered that my PC had been riddled with various malware + viruses. After reformatting my computer, I proceeded with AVG internet (recommended by a friend). It's been well over 5-7 years now that I've had AVG internet security and can proudly say that I've not once been infected with a virus. It really does a great job protecting you. I still download a lot (almost every day) and still, VIRUS FREE!! If you're on the fence about getting AVG, just do it. You really won't regret the decision. I know I haven't :)

Cons: The biggest con to AVG internet security is the annoying ads they run for you to purchase upgrades or extension software upgrades, such as AVG PC TuneUp. They ask me all the time if I want to fix my performance issues (which, I have none, by the way) and would honestly love it if they stopped soliciting me. I already have their software. Geez. Other than that--it does exactly what it's supposed to do: keep you protected.

Overall: Keeps me safe. Does exactly what its supposed to do. I'd give this a 9 out of 10. The only reason they lose 1 point is because they like to solicit you to upgrade from the current package you have with them, which is just annoying. Otherwise they would have got a 10/10 from me!

Pros:

AVG is perfectly capable of protecting your computer from threats that persist online. It allows users to make customized installations, only the modules that they consider that they need and want to use frequently, the package integrates very well with the network functions of the Windows operating system.

It allows you to make a group at home so you can share files and folders through the local network and also to work with the Windows platform applications. The Internet Security suite is ideal for offices. AVG is the protection you need while browsing the web and using its functions

Cons:

Its most basic package is not complete enough, and when we move to the middle, Internet Security, the level of security it offers is still insufficient, although its analysis is very fast, the suite slows down the system more than other competitors

Overall: AVG ANTIVIRUS: of the three best security suites of the moment, you have on the computer when the program is in action. Without that we are talking about an excessive overload of the system, because its average of 3 seconds is precisely the average of the industry, the truth is that activities such as the opening of websites, installation of programs or document analysis take the AVG Antivirus much longer (3 seconds more than average, a very considerable figure for some users).

Pros: I was first introduced to AVG back in college. It was the AV of choice for the entire university deployment. I was then part of the technical support team for the implementation.

I find AVG to be fast and does not take a toll on system resources (e.g., others are memory hogs). I also like the interface which is intuitive and easy to operate. Back then, I found it easy to teach the (older) end-users. The updates come in regularly, and up-to-speed whenever new threats come about.

It has good detection. I compared it with other more popular antivirus software, and it's detection is almost similar, if not more comprehensive.

Cons: AVG performs best with the basic protection.. other AV's have come up with extra features and better malware protection... something worth improving on for AVG to stay on top.

Overall: Internet Security has never been more necessary in this millennial / digital age. AVG gives me the confidence in using my PC for internet research, downloading of files, and just about anything that may seem scary to infect my computer. False positives come very very rarely for me.

Good threat detection and easy on my hardware. AVG Free is good enough, but go for the paid one if you need extra coverage and support!

Pros: What I like the most about AVG is that it actually works against viruses and not your PC. Should it not otherwise, it is fairly easy to navigate through the program and create exceptions for the programs that AVG wrongfully blocks.

I have used many antivirus programs throughout the years and many of them always conflicted with other programs I use, my internet, or did too much more than simply keep viruses out of my PC. AVG gets the job done, provides you with options on how, and gives you the stats on what's going on. Their easy-to-navigate user interface makes problems that occasionally arise easily solvable, compared to most other programs out there.

Cons: What I like the least does not have to do with the software itself, but with it's advertising. More often than not, I will occasionally get a pop-up on my desktop pushing for me to upgrade my AVG, start a free trial, and other things of the sort. Though I do not mind this kind of popup once in a while, AVG does it quite often, but it can be easily overlooked.

Pros: In the first place, being free has a great attraction, being also very easy to install and / or uninstall.

In addition, it has real-time protection of files, emails and instant messages and the program is updated with some regularity.

On the other hand, it consumes few resources in comparison, for example, with antivirus such as Kaspersky, Panda or McAffee.

Cons:   It does not have (at least the free version) support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, such as F-Secure Anti-Virus.

- There are significant differences in the number of updates that the paid version has with respect to the free version, giving it, of course, a higher priority to the paid version with regard to downloading signatures for the most recent viruses.

Overall: Although in my place of work they do not use this antivirus, I have it installed for many years in my personal pc, together with the MacAffee, and I have never had virus problems. He has always detected them and the best thing is that I have not had to pay for the service.

Pros:

I like it a lot because it is very easy to use it is friendly in that sense.

has the option of real-time protection of email files and instant messages which allows you to stay safe when you perform your daily activities

it uses few resources of the computer what allows to use the antivirus in the background while you use your programs of work.

It has resistant protection, with certifications of vb100%.

and is valid for any commercial operating system

Cons:

among the very few disadvantages for this great antivirus

It has no support 24 hours a day or 7 days a week, this is improving little by little.

It does not support OS from servers such as Windows Server 2003, nor does it support the Windows XP Pro x64 edition. that by now very little use it

- Unable to analyze units in network.

Overall:

trust, job security, better performance in my team and comity at the time of my daily activities.

Pros: Detecting almost all basic virus and spywares

Internet security offers all rounder security

Safe search for preventing malware from internet

Behaviour based detection

Easy interface to master

Fast updates and fast scan

It can work well with AVG tune up to keep PC at optimal performance.

Cons: No parent filter

Bit pricey I guess

Takes a bit time for full scan

Overall: AVG antivirus used to dominate the free antivirus space until Avast and Avira came in to picture. However it's effectiveness has been slightly decreased and started to perform only mediocre in detecting malware. However the current UI is really simple to use and AVG offers enough modules to protect the computer. It includes parent filters, safe search for preventing malware from internet and a decent detection system based on heuristic methods. I would recommend normal users to go for it as the value you are getting for your hard earned money is matched.

Recommendations to other buyers: Use a parent filter separately. AVG doesn't include it.

Best protection for your computer. AVG is always up to date, fast, and accurate.

Pros: Having used various types of antivirus and malware protection software, I found that AVG served me best. It has a good malware protection system. It has other great capabilities such as destroying any given file leaving no trace of it. I find this very useful specially with the online threats from virus and malware. One of my personal favorite feature is that it does not slow the performance of the computer. AVG regularly updates and helps protect the system.

Cons: Sometimes when you use AVG for full system scans it becomes power hungry and slows the computer. But it only happens when you run a full scan on your system.

Overall: AVG has so far provided me with great support. Since installing AVG my system did not have any issues. It regularly updates and scans your computer. It also detects malware which is very important if you are downloading files regularly.

I used AVG for my computer and also am using AVG for one of my mobile phones.

Pros: AVG is one of the best known and totally free antivirus software that is out there. Easy to use, both for computer and mobile devices.

Cons: It always monitors my phone and offers to delete things for me or do SOMETHING (anything) in the hope of getting me to upgrade to pro version, and when I did that, it deleted some very precious photographs on my phone and it is now impossible to recover those photos again. So I blame AVG for losing my photos and it also doesn't have a good detection rate for malware on the computer, and possibly the phone as well. Be careful when you use AVG.

Overall: It supposedly protects my phone and computer from threats, but it seems not to be a very good antivirus for the computer, so I removed it a long time ago. On my mobile phone I still keep it on, but I blame it for deleting my important photos by recommending me to "clear space" and delete them.

Pros: We ran a free computer repair fair for years at the local university where twice a year, we'd fix about 100 "broken" computers over a course of a long day. For most of these computers, the culprit was that their box was overrun with viruses. The free version of AVG fixed almost every single one of those computers, so well over 1000! Since then, whenever someone asks for an antivirus solution recommendation, I tell them AVG - but I encourage the full version since there's so much better protection.

Cons: As with any good antivirus solution, there's constant updates, firewall issues, and annoying messages. Not really anything you can do about those since that's just part of the job.

Overall: Superb antivirus protection and much, much more! Been using and recommending AVG for about 10 years and will continue to!

Pros: Avg offers one of the best antivirus services on the market, with excellent features that keep your devices protected, accounts with very good tools such as the special browser for banking atransacciones, which focuses on protecting when you enter banks, transfers funds and more, has a database with an infinity of viruses that guarantees a large part of the security of your computer, in addition to other complete functions that will always protect you.

Cons: It does not have the support service 24 hours a day, this is a strong disadvantage with respect to other services and may affect the final service since it is important that you always have this service according to your needs.

Overall: Protect all your devices with an optimized quality antivirus that does not slow down the PC making its use a nightmare.

The free version gives you reasonable protection. The paid version has way more features though.

Pros: The fact that it doesn't use as much computer resources as Mcafee and Norton Antivirus. It's not the lightest antivirus but pretty decent when you compared to the ones that get pushed when you buy a new laptop or PC on a store.

Cons: If you want basic protection and use the free version, it gets a little pushy with the notifications trying to get you to buy the pro version. You need to be careful because sometimes the wording looks like it's asking you to update when in reality they are referring to an upgrade to the paid version.

Overall: The free version offers basic virus protection, while the paid version gives you other important features like anti malware capabilities. It also offers system optimization tools, but if you have a relatively low end computer, it might use up more of your resources making your computer a bit slower.

Pros: It helps me detect viruses and other threats while doing my daily activities with the computer. I can install it on different devices and it allows me to protect my files and personal information from fatal damages. It stays updated without generating annoying and uncomfortable notifications. Since I use it I have not had virus attacks on my files. I recommend it sincerely.

Cons: When I use several software at the same time, it will cause some slowness in the computer. This I could verify when I uninstalled the AVG Internet Security and the slowness was eliminated. In its paid version, it is a costly option for the common public.

Overall: Protects all my devices with Internet connection (desktop, tablet and cell phone), of possible viruses existing on the Internet. It is an excellent option in its free version. Although it causes some slowness in normal processes. I recommend it as a general purpose antivirus. Meets the necessary requirements for common users.

Pros: AVG is the feature rich security system has Good user interface having easily traceable/visible downloading and installation options and is very easy to use with probably all the basic features you need. Reasonably priced for a small to medium size enterprise. Reliable customer support (phone support and excellent remote management)and services. As of now on my PC i do not see any malware or virus that AVG was not able to detect or notified me it's a big relief.

Cons: Not many cons to mentions sometimes too many pop-up notifications/updates that aggravates sometime. it runs in background, consumes more CPU as compared to other compatible softwares in this category and sometimes makes my computer slow.

AVG have also protected me from malicious files that I download from the internet unknowingly and also protected my data from unauthorized access.

Cons: I like using AVG internet security but my pc gets very slow when am scanning the drive for threats and viruses.

Overall: AVG have given me numerous benefits such as protecting my information from unauthorized access, protected my online browsing, protected my pc from virus , worms and other malicious softwares as well as internet threats.

Pros: Honestly, the thing that I probably like most about AVG is that it seems to work well in the background without slowing down my machine, That and I have had zero virus or malware issues.

Cons: About the only thing that I do not like is that they constantly hammer you with pop up ads for their additional services. I am on a paid premium subscription and find this to be very unprofessional and you can't turn them off.

Also, they are trying to move in on MalwareBytes territory and their update created a conflict with my paid version of MalwareBytes. This is only if you have the paid version and there is a workaround but, AVG won't tell you that.

Overall: It works and my p.c. is clean!

Pros: This antivirus allows me to constantly protect my equipment (tablet, cell phone, PC and laptop), files and emails, from harmful elements that may compromise my information as well as my devices. It is practical because at the resource level it does not consume a lot of memory and it is a program that reaches everyone because it has a free version

Cons: The only limitation that I have observed is the program on the cell phone, since when carrying out the virus identification processes, it makes the device somewhat slow and delays some elements.

Overall: The greatest benefit is having both devices and files protected from viruses that compromise information.

It is a security software that has a lordly interface so it is very easy to use.

In addition to having a number of tools of great uctulidad such as file encryption, anti-theft protection, Secure Deletion and possibility to remotely manage the security of all our devices in your web portal

Cons: that does not have No anti-ransomware protection. and that the free version is limited in the support and acutilizations

In my opinion it is one of the most efficient antivirus, it is very friendly for inexperienced users.

Cons: It is a software that occasionally causes slowness in the computer due to the heavy ones, if the computer does not have good processing capacity, the normal process becomes very slow.

Pros: AVG seems to protect my laptop and home computer very well. It recommends to run general scans every now and then, as well as alert me if a website I accessed or a file I downloaded could be malicious. Price-wise it is within the same category as other anti-virus software, and so far I've been happy with its protection.

Cons: At times AVG 'overprotects' and raises false alarms for files and websites that are in fact clean and pose no threat. This definitely should be looked at by the AVG team.

Overall: I've had the chance to use multiple anti-virus applications over the years, and AVG seems to work just fine. It runs well in the background.

AVG Free works beautifully and for years that was all I had, but now that I have employees working with me I made the invesrtment in paid upgrades and am even more impressed.

Its easy to set up scans and easy to see the results. The free version I find is good enough for general email and browsing but on my work computer I opt for the paid version with a few extra protections. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Cons: I don't really have any bad things to say about this. I downloaded it on my parents computer and they found it a bit confusing so maybe if you aren't very computer literate its harder but that's all I can think of.

Pros: I'm just a small time online entrepreneur and I am not an expert at online security. My brother recommended this to me. I've been using basic for many years and have had no issues, so I assume it keeps my data safe. I kinda just keep it running, update, and scan regularly. However, I must point out that my work online are quite basic compared to others, so I can't say how it works for larger organizations.

Cons: I have had no issues with it so far, although I must point out that my digital needs are quite basic.

Overall: It's easy to use and update. Don't have to be an expert to stay secure.

Pros: It's so easy to keep the bad guys out of your computer when you're using AVG. It's easy to setup and it doesn't take up too much of space on your computer. What more do you need to know, except that if you want to keep all the viruses and spam and trojans out of your life, then keep this software on your computer and keep it updated.

Cons: It almost seems too simple. There have been some changes within the organization, so I'm paying attention to see how this affects the software.

Overall: Pretty good if you're using a Windows device and you don't want any interruptions.

Used the free version for over a decade with XP. Had the paid version since Windows 7.

Pros: Free version is very easy to use, stays updated, and has kept dozens of my home and work PCs virus free for several years. The paid version is very affordable, and basically touch free after setup.

Cons: Constant nagging about additional AVG products during updates, and sometimes slipping them in as bundleware. It also throws false positives for Nirsoft tools repeatedly and you cannot add exceptions with the free version.

Overall: For over a decade it has provided me and my family with free antivirus on our home PCs. In that time, I have had to remove 2 viruses. That is a remarkable record.

Pros: The software is built quite solid and is trustworthy. It captures malwares and viruses very accurately. It also rejects infected websites quite well before establishing connection. Definitely easy to use.

Cons: Why I gave only 3 stars even I'm happy to use this software? Because AVG's recommended extensions and/or new add-on software ads pop up at the bottom right corner of the screen quite often. I've been using AVG's products more than 10 years for my business and personal. Pop up ads are very annoying. This is the reason that I gave only 3 stars.

Mostly positive. I do wish it was a little more aggressive.

Pros: The avg command center is an effective tool for managing multiple installs of avg security (we have around 107 computers running the software). It shows virus dectections across the network whichs aids in containing infections.

Cons: Holy cow the remote admin interface is not very user friendly. It took forever to get it to download and install the latest version of the avg end user software. It kept downloading an older version that it refused to install. I aren't even tried to show the less savvy members in the dept how to use the remote admin.

Cons: The free version used to be great until the recent updates which made it more intrusive. Pop ups keep appearing constantly reminding you of the features you could get from upgrading to the Pro version. The premium version is worth it just to get rid of the popups.

Cons: I have nothing bad to say about avg, it is really a solid antivirus, since I have used it I haven't had any type of virus issues with my machine.

Pros: The software is a protection for my computer of virus and malware or any kind of trouble when I'm online, almost all the time. So far, my computer is working great, I've received virus or malware alerts and I can deal with it. The computer performance is great, not slowing down as happened with other antivirus software. I can tell that AVG Security is a very complete software.

Cons: The software interface is simple, but when I want to scan my computer becomes a slow process, considering other stuff to do. In this matter, I just make it behind the main job I usually do.

Overall: The protection of my computer working every day online and exposure to social networks and viruses is an outstanding behavior

Pros: With the rise of cyber attacks the AVG gives the opportunity to constantly protect my computers, files and emails, from harmful elements that may compromise my information, I use the free version because I am a common user that does not need updates. 24 hours, nor my computer, cell phone and tablet depends on a server, it is easy to install and does not consume more resources of the computer, it is compatible with almost all operating systems.

Cons: the free version leaves the user helpless in some moments due to the fact that the possible threats are not constantly updated, in the case of the cell phone I feel that it is very slow, the paid version is quite expensive for the general public

Overall: It allows me to protect my computers (desktop, tablet and cell phone), files (documents, photos, videos) and emails from malicious elements that are found digitally.

Pros: AVG offers A "Free" version where you can download it and start using it. What i like about AVG is that is easy to use, the UI is simple and understanding, offers multiple devices and multiple to protect from intruders and hackers, browse safely with their on-board browser for web surfing and shopping. AVG has background scanning and does not use much RAM in the background to operate. AVG has back up drive that i can backup my files and apps, but its limited storage.

Cons: Nothing to dislike about AVG, i can hardly find any issues with AVG and so far its all good and i like it.

Overall: AVG is very simple to use, the main benefit our using this software is that it is free and it protects my PC from hackers, viruses, malware, spyware and etc. I urge people to start using AVG if you like the free version you then have an option to purchase the suite that includes additional features.

Pros: AVG Internet security has a unified interface, which installs in a simple way and gives you a powerful way to control the security on your system. It is still a cheap product, but in no way is it "cheap and nasty" any more.

The anti-virus is excellent, and the firewall features protect your system well.

Cons: At times, as with most defence products, AVG can be resource hungry. This can have a slightly detrimental effect on system performance.

Overall: Good, cheap and reliable systems protection, from AV to firewall.

Pros: I've been using both the personal and business suites of AVG for numerous years now and it seems to do the job just fine. No virus goes through AVG and it notifies you with a pop-up whenever there is something suspicious going on or if a file may be contaminated and damage your machine.

Cons: The lower-tier subscriptions are lacking some features, but still do provide protection for your devices.

Overall: Overall I'd say definitely give AVG Business a try and you'll see for yourself.

I am not planning to switch any time soon.

Pros: Works in the background, needing very little input.

Overall: We have used AVG since there became a need for antivirus. The internet security product seems to give us a reasonable degree of security. Nothing can stop every threat. We have to be vigilant and take responsibility for our actions on the internet. That being said, this software makes it easier to keep our guard up. It runs along in the background, scanning emails, checking URLs and what ever else it does. When it tells you something, you better take notice. I have never had to use customer support so I can't rate that. I think that says a lot right there.

All in all very good software.

Comments: The software also has a file shredder that destroys any file you place in it so no one can find it or restore it on your computer which is a nice touch.

Pros: AVG has good malware protection and a light system impact, includes a powerful file shredder and quickly scans drives. But Avast and Avira have more useful features, and Bitdefender has better malware protection.

Cons: This software slows your computer more than other antivirus software we reviewed. The software is also very difficult to remove from your computer once installed.

Pros: I've used CloudCare for over 2 years, and sold & recommended AVG anti-virus products since 2007. In the late 90s and 2000s AVG Technologies was a solid company putting out a solid antivirus product. Now the company is focused on sales, market share and increasing profits, at the expense of technical support and beta testing.

Cons: CloudCare is a train wreck. It's unreliable, has chronic technical issues, is prone to service outages, and AVG is constantly pushing out half-baked updates that introduce as many problems as they resolve. On top of all that, the technical support for resellers is unfortunately unresponsive.

Recommendations to other buyers: In the time since I switched over to CloudCare, the situation has grown far worse than it was a couple of years ago. I have hung on hoping things would improve, but instead it has gotten worse. I finally had to bite the bullet and move to a true MSP platform. I recommend avoiding any product from AVG technologies altogether.

It is very secure, it helps you to detect malicious websites in order that you can navigate on internet. Has a lot of options that you can configure it so you can block or unblock software and sites.

Cons: They add so many features that sometimes is difficult to figure out how to configure a specific rule.

Pros: AVG is accessible and easy to install. Once installed, it's easy to navigate and set your policies and exceptions. The user interface is easy to understand, and it's easy to find what you're looking for.

Cons: We support over 1500 devices, and virus removal is one of our services. Clients with AVG are much more prone to viruses. Just doing a search through our help tickets for viruses, I can see that a large number were running AVG. Compared to something like Bit Defender or Kaspersky, which has a pretty low rate on infection. I don't trust AVG to protect against ransomware, and always advise against it. Most antiviruses are better, in my experience

Overall: AVG gives very bare-bones protection, but should be used with another product, such as a hardware firewall, to be truly protected.

Pros: It is a good choice using this anti-virus if you're just looking for a basic malware protection especially for small to medium business enterprise. And also it works well together with another anti-virus as a second layer of protection. The installation of this software is way more easier than other anti-virus that I used.

Cons: In all of the anti-virus that I used, this software used a lot of computer space when it runs on the background and also it sometimes fails to trace complex viruses.

Overall: gives good security and protection for my computer for malware threats.

Cons: In all honestly, not too much bad to say. If your a gamer though, just like any secueity protection, if you dont know what you're doing, it can be disasteous if your dealing with certain file types.

Overall: I got aorta benefits. I mainly used for the Malware and file scanner modes, but found a lot of other cool stuff to play with.

The interface was pretty easy to navigate, if I ever had to turn off the virus to install a piece of software, it was easy to do. I didnt run in too much into having to do this though.

Cons: Lots of notifications, which is good, but can be bothersome. I just want to know that it is working, I don't need a full report every day or every week.

The free trial also offers me a good choice of options before running out, and I seriously considered it an option to get a subscription if my family didn't choose Norton over it.

Cons: The buttons and functionality services on the software's main interface was a tad confusing and I did not really know what most things were for, but I appreciated the choice at my disposal.

Pros: I support AVG internet security on a couple client sites. Looking at the big picture, it generally does it's job (protecting PCs from infection and other threats) quite well. It does have a couple minor annoyances that tend to keep it from landing on my personal favorites list (see below)

Cons: AVG seems to generate a far greater number of alert pop ups compared to some competitive products. These are often worded in such a way as to be hard for end users to confidently know how (or if) to react.

On a personal preference level, I simply do not like the appearance of the user interface. I find it functional, but visually unappealing.

Overall: Does the basic security job well enough.
