Pros: The fact that the free version is free! That even with that version, the features you get are fed premium.

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.

Pros: The list of features and its easy-to-use design make this software a great value for any small business owner The installation and actual use of the product is actually aided by the AVG Admin console, which facilitates remote installation and complete central management

Cons: The one possible downside to AVG¿s business security suite is its drain on system resources. Boot times were noticeably slower as was the time it took to open just about any program.

Pros: It's constantly monitoring and scanning my office computers. Lets me know of anything suspicious without being obnoxious like others I've used.

Cons: To get the more thorough level of protection you have to pay monthly/yearly fees, which is standard of course, but still a con. ;)

Overall: Keeps lots of the scary stuff away from our quite expensive computer, sweet!

Free, decent software.

Pros: It's free, and it does what is says on the tin well. Nothing fancy, and there are better applications but for the total price of $0 it's great.

Cons: The actual protection that the software provides you is decent, but there is software like BitDefender that does the job better. The constant pop-ups are annoying as well.

Pros: AVG Internet Security Business Edition is extremely easy to use and install for an average user. You don't need tech support to assist you.

AVG Internet Security Business Edition provides you antivirus protection, but it provides above and beyond basic antivirus protection.

Cons: The reason AVG falls behind the small business antivirus pack is that it has lower AV-TEST results. It does not provide you the best protection against known Malware. If you read the reviews of the AV Test results you will see that other softwares such as Kaspersky, BitDefender, Panda provide higher standards for protection against known Malware.

Overall: Great free version tool that covers a lot without spending a dime. This is the product for you if you are looking for Internet security product without high level of data loss protections.

Cons: Sometimes pops are annoying and they keep coming. It will be good if they can be very small and more transparent.

Pros: I have this on my cell phone and it is seamless. It is installed as an app and works behind the scenes to bring my phone security. It give suggestions (which I like) to make my phone safer.

Cons: Sometimes it pops up and is annoying but all in all, it is serving its purpose on my phone. It may be too intrusive at times.

Overall: It protects my phone in the background and is free. It is a seamless way to get protection. I am sure there is an upgraded version but the "light" version works just fine.

Excellent free option for internet security.

Pros: Avast is an excellent option for internet security because you get a full internet security program with all the features and benefits for free.

Cons: Pop ups can get rather annoying, as they are too big and too frequent. If they were smaller, more transparent, less frequent [less redundant], it would be a big improvement.

Overall: A full feature internet security program for free.

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: None thus far

Overall: I use this for our PCs at home and it's been good so far. It easily scans for viruses, malware, and will also clean up any registry files that might be taking up space on your computer. One of the hard drives were full and with the "space clean up function" I was able to delete over 30gbs of unwanted backups and software updates.

Recommendations to other buyers: The free-version is sufficient for you to try this out.

Pros: East and fast install. Always watches for threats and warns or cleans threats quickly. Browser threat detection is solid and reliable.

Cons: I'm not the biggest fan of their system tray popups and nag prompts, but can't complain for what you get.

Overall: AVG is one of the few FREE AV products that I believe in. Their product is lite but powerful. It catches both local threats and also browser threats. I also use AVG on my Android phone to protect me from intrusions.

Recommendations to other buyers: Nothing more to advise.

Comments: We've primarily used the free version of AVG, but I recently got to use the paid version as well. The system has a very easy-to-use dashboard which alerts you to useless files, and programs that are slowing down your computer. We use the free version throughout our office and haven't had any significant issues (knock on wood). That said, I really didn't notice a huge difference in speed or performance when we used the paid version, so I can't say it's completely worth the money. Haven't really used customer service either, so that rating doesn't mean much!

Works, good.

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.

Not the best but is ok.

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.

Pros: Comprehensive Internet protection including mail server, file server and endpoints. It offers scanning of email attachments, downloaded files and firewall protection. It protects the workstations without slowing down the systems.

Pros: I really like the user interface and simple encryption with Data Safe. The Web Tune-Up tool enhances online protection for all types of users and had little no effect on the overall browsing experience.

Cons: The malware and phishing reacted differently across mixed browser environments. The update process was simple but had some issues getting deployed across the network during the initial deployment.

Recommendations to other buyers: This software is very inexpensive and you will recover your costs in just couple of months. It offers a good protection but you should still have a regularly scheduled scans and updates to ensure everything working at peek performance.
