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: This has been my security option on my PC for as long as I can remember now. Back in my teens, I remember being told by my more computer savvy friends that this was the best option on the market for the cost. At the time, it cost me nothing!

After over a year of positive results, I decided to continue my use and purchased the software after my trail expired. I still use it on my old laptops, which I have never run into any security issues. It is easy to navigate when you need to add exceptions to your safety lists, and it updates without you having to prompt it.

Cons: I don't have much negative to say about this software. It sits in the background and its job well.

I guess if I am splitting hairs, I would prefer the interface for this software be a bit more user friendly. I sometimes would run into a bit of frustration when attempting to find a site I had previously blocked.

Overall: AVG has been a reliable tool throughout the years. I highly recommend this as a great software if you never want to have to touch it or see it pop up. It is silent, and efficient.

Pros: What I love about this application is the easy operation, the complete security it gives you on the computer and the support it provides you at the attention level, you may have problems with a serial or operation of the application, go to the support page and you have an agent who will be helping you until you solve your problem, it is a very well recommended program, it is also a program that is not so heavy to install on the computer and makes diagnoses depending on what you need daily or weekly.

Cons: What I do not like a little is normal in any user is the price, but we would have to put a bullet and say that it is more important if the cost or support, but despite the cost of the application is very good because they have good support

Overall: The experience has been very rewarding for the service and support that they have given me, from the good attention at any time to the security that I have in my machine to avoid any type of information filtering.

It is an excellent security program highly recommended.

Pros: I love that they offer a free version that is actually free and works well. I had a computer technician at a shop tell me that the only AntiVirus software he used and recommended to his customers was AVG. He told me that there was no reason to pay a lot of money for fancy AntiVirus software when AVG worked just as well and was in fact simpler to install and easier to use. I have been using it for years and like how easy it is to install and keep updated. I recommend this product to people all the time.

Cons: If you are trying to install the free version and you don't pay attention you might end up installing a trail version of the upgraded software. Just make sure to select the version to want instead of just keeping the version it defaults to.

Overall: I was the program manager at a homeless shelter and I had AVG installed on all the staff computers. We never had a problem with it and it worked very well.

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: Last year we suffered a cyber attack by computer hackers who took advantage of the weaknesses of our old antivirus to blackmail us with the threat of destroying our database if we did not pay a ransom. Faced with our refusal to yield to their demands, they consequently destroyed our entire administrative system and its databases.

This terrible incident forced us to invest in a better antivirus. We evaluate all the options in the market and the most satisfactory for its quality, trajectory, customer service, adaptability and price turned out to be AVG.

We have already been a year under the protection of AVG and I have to say that the experience has been totally satisfactory. It is very simple to use, in addition to its scans it is extremely thorough, it does not leave a single byte without scanning and it scans until the last existing malware and spyware. We have felt much more protected under the care of AVG.

Cons: I truly consider AVG as a very complete antivirus. At an extremely accessible price and a friendly and easy to use interface. It is a dog guard that is alert 24/7

Overall: very satisfactory, with AVG cybersecurity stopped being a headache.

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.

Pros: I've tried McAfee. I've tried Norton. I've tried BitDefender. But the only anti-virus and internet security software that I've found that fits all of my needs, and doesn't cause additional problems, is AVG. Unlike some other antivirus packages that gut your system if you try to uninstall them, AVG installs quickly, works efficiently, doesn't tie up many resources, and can be uninstalled with little fuss. The Internet Security works actively, warning you about any suspicious websites while closely monitoring cookies and other file exchanges to keep you safe. All of this while being incredibly unobtrusive. I have nothing but good things to say.

Cons: I'm required to fill out a Cons section, but I can't think of any. The price is great, considering the power and ease of the product.

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: I have AVG on my work computer and I have to say I am very satisfied. the interface is very clear and makes the software very intuitive and easy to use.

The scan runs in the background without slowing down the PC.

Is an excellent antivirus that protects your PC from the numerous threats that exist on the internet.

Cons: The paid version is quite expensive, but this is not a problem if you are able to withstand the continuous popups and the notifications that come continuously from the free version. Many of these notifications are advertisements that promote the paid version subscription. The support service is not excellent, sometimes I solve the problem by looking for the answer on the internet

Overall: Overall it is a good tool for PC protection. the scans detect all kinds of threats. My experience is positive.

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: AVG is a powerful program that protects our computers against various types of threats. It is very easy to install it. It has an installation assistant that allows any user to install it. Its interface is very intuitive. It has a learning curve not very inclined which makes it possible to learn how to handle each of its functions in a matter of days. It is a fast and effective software

Cons: I think that the paid version has a somewhat high cost. And although it offers a basic and free version I think there are many functions on the outside.

Overall: AVG is the best antivirus and antimalware program that has brought security to my company. Previously, we were at risk. Other antivirus programs are not updated continuously, so they are vulnerable to threats that mutate with ease. AVG is updated often.

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: Set up and go, it automatically scans and takes care of danger for you. I feel like this product looks out for my computer's safety. I like that I pay a bundled price to also get protection on my wireless device. Support responds the same day when reporting issues.

Cons: There is a lot of advertising and pushing of other AVG products that I can't disable, that gets annoying. The intro price is very tempting but the renewal can cause sticker shock as the regular price is much higher. The Android app was not setting up right and required support's intervention to get to work.

Overall: I used AVG's free product for many years in my personal computer and it never let me down so it was a no brainer to upgrade and unlock the added features.

Pros: AVG Internet Security has the easiest installation process and hassle-free usage out of all the other products I have tried so far. It's a simple installation steps can be followed by non-technical users and the interfaces of the applications are also very clean and simple. It offers a free option which is adequate for personal use and it is available in multiple platforms and for mobile too. The protection it provides is reliable and advances and you can easily upgrade your package to cover additional areas like hacker control, payment protection.

Cons: The only downside is that it tends to slow your computer sometimes especially if a system scan is running. Other than that a great tool.

Overall: AVG Internet Security lifts off the burden of all sorts of security threats internet users face with. It's a great tool to use on the computer or mobile alike to ensure you are protcted.

Pros: The free version of AVG Internet Security was so good, so that I decided this software is worth a purchase. And I am not wrong, until now. It provides good protection against virus and phishing links. You can now be sure that your privacy is protected. One of the feature I love of AVG is that I can scan my system before OS starts.

Cons: The price is quite high compared to that of its competitors, such as Avast. The user settings can be confused sometimes for new users. It also does not include a password manager package.

Overall: I have been a long time user of AVG free antivirus. With the rise of data leakage and hacking recently, I think I should update my protection. Now I do not feel worry when I make transactions online.

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.

Pros: The engine of AVG Internet Security 2016 is the same as that of its antivirus version, and has improved a lot lately, especially with regard to errors (false positives), maintaining a very high level of antivirus effectiveness.

What I like the most about AVG is its disinfection capacity, close to 90% of the cases according to the latest tests carried out and on par with the market leaders: it has an excellent ability to detect malware, disinfect malware, and a design, 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

Overall: In the use of my pc I was very beneficial to keep the computer safe from attacks of viruses and malicious software

Pros: I've been an AVG user for over a decade and I've never been disappointed. I started with their free version and then recently upgraded to their paid services. AVG does slow my computer down a bit, but it's worth the peace of mind. I'm always alerted of potential harmful sites or files and AVG is always quick to take care of problems.

Cons: The paid version doesn't offer as many features as other security software. While it's the best free security you can find, it's not the greatest option if you're willing to fork out some money. If you have highly sensitive material, definitely go with a different software.

Pros: It is easy to install. It is easy to navigate through this tool whenever you need to add exceptions to your safety list.

It makes you relax knowing that your online communications are protected.

It updates me whenever a virus has been detected. It uses few resources of the computer.

Cons: I only have one drawback about AVG. The customer support is not as responsive as i would want. Apart from this, the services offered by AVG are satisfying.

Overall: AVG detects malware which is important if you download files regularly. I have used it for long and I can recommend it to anyone. It can protect all your devices as long as there is internet connection.

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.

Pros: I am a long, long time user of AVG for my PC devices and the first thing I do with any new device is take off the annoying preinstalled McAfee (which takes forever, as they just don't want you to) and install AVG. It's lightweight, unobtrusive and completely reliable. 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.

Cons: Nothing. One of my must have/go to softwares for YEARS.

Overall: Excellent. It has performed beautifully for me across a wide range of devices and through all kinds of upgardes.

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.

It simply does its job very well in the background and you don't even know it is there.

Cons: The only thing I can think of is the upsells, but honestly, I don't even mind that because it is such a great product. If I needed the other services they offer, I would probably purchase them because of the adverisements.

Pros: Free component with excellent protection

Pretty non-invasive (not CPU intensive)

Cons: Not a very intuitive main screen (dashboard) - takes a little getting used to to navigate around

Overall: Starts off with a Free Suite of applications that cover you extensively - but purchasing the entire suite gives you piece of mind with Antivirus protection, ransomeware protection, data safe and file shredder (makes recovering deleted files harder to recover - for piece of mind).

When the application is running (even while running a full system scan), you barely notice it on a relatively newer laptop or PC (I run it on an older Dell laptop)

My all in one PC-Protector.

This also done awesome work for stopping usb /webpage from infecte my computer. Nice Job AVG.

Cons: Sometimes it takes my PHP as a threat and stops it for a new task, which them break my programming and I have to whitelist everytime when starting a new projects.

Overall: It did awesome work for me to prevent hacking and privacy protection.

It gives me peace of mind and has in business for a long time. If you need premium antivirus it's my first recommendation.

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.

Cons: needs a internet connection always. have to purchase license for it for proper functioning.

difficult to install any other antivirus program after we uninstall avg internet security as it lefts some register keys in windows registry that prohibits user to install any other software.

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.

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.

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.

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

The protection you get is great, and many lab tests performed on AVG will support this claim.

It runs smoothly in the background without consuming too many resources.

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.

Cons: The program sometimes does not detect some malicious elements in browsers such as Opera and Firefox. Blocks some known and supported elements in the database. The firewall is complex to configure.

Overall: I obtained from this software the benefit of security under the protection scheme with a 95% performance of malicious object locks, in addition, a safe navigation in the planned infrastructure

Pros: I like that I can trust AVG will protect the security of my computer without having to worry about it. Once you set it up, it does a great job of keeping your computer safe. I've never had any issues with it.

Cons: Just like other security software out there, it will use some computer resources when it's running a scan in the background. It does cost money to have the paid Internet Security software and there are other programs out there for less that will protect your computer as well.

Comments: AVG recently purchased by Avast does concern me, but I have seen no change in support and stability and it's been nearly a year.

Pros: Very easily managed by admins, easily deployed and notifications are great. Support is great if you are an AVG partner. Pricing is best in the business, so it's a great value. And, last but not least, the newly updated Remote-IT feature is excellent and unmatched by any competing product.

Cons: Can be slow sometimes, causing users to reboot. Has been known to conflict with some scanner software.

Pros: It seems to be relatively comprehensive, covering the basics for home or small business. I've used it for several years.

Cons: A few worries about what security holes it might have/leave open. I've never had any issues with it and it seems to be a better value than the old US offerings.

It can argue with other applications (dont use it with Malware bites) as they will fight each other, reducing performance notably.

Overall: It does primary anti-virus and internet security for my office computers at a fair price.

Pros: AVG is a simple and effective antivirus application, it's light on memory and on CPU usage. The application can detect heuristic security risk (things that look like risks but have not yet been reported/detected as such).

Cons: The application is a one stop security shop, personally I make use of a different VPN product, it would be better for me if it detected my VPN application/usage and didn't prompt to purchase one.

Overall: Relatively secure computer usage, peace of mind for basic security threats.

Where other virus protection software tell you that there is a corrupt file and you must upgrade to have it fixed, AVG cleans the file and tells you just that.

Cons: The only qualm I have with AVG is that it is not compatible with most other antivirus software, this is common with antivirus software and can be overlooked.

Pros: I enjoy just how easy it is to setup AVG Internet Security throughout a whole office. You can purchase individual licenses, or purchase a mass of them, with a bulk discount of course. Not only is it easy to set up, but it also helps protect against all sorts of viruses on the internet. AVG Internet Security also warns you when you are entering a website that it deems as "sketchy" or "unsafe". With these features, it helps steer away employees from entering sites that may harm their computers.

Cons: With the internet filter that AVG Internet Security comes with, which deems websites as "sketchy" or "unsafe", it may also try filtering out websites that are completely safe. I have come to instances where I would be visiting a reputable site, but the filter would pop up and try to steer me away from it, which got a little annoying at first, but it seems to have stopped after a bit. This is only a slight discomfort in a software full of great things, though.

Overall: We were looking for a great Antivirus, and we came across AVG, and it was everything that we could have dreamed of with an Antivirus. It is the best one on the market by far!

Of course, we should all be browsing safely, but it was nice to have AVG just in case. I don't know how much I trust Windows 10's built-in security suite...

Pros: Reliable protection for our company. Our IT provider moved us to this service from Kaspersky years ago and seems to do the job quite well. Doesnt seem to consume that much system resources and updates appear to be easy to rollout to users.

Cons: Not many that i can think of. Once and a while an upgrade will seem to get hung up on a user, but our IT group can easily enough get that corrected.

I first started using AVG on my Smartphone and quickly also started using on my PC.

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.
