A full antivirus suite which protects against viruses, malware, online threats and certain rootkits found online.

While most Antivirus vendors all seem to promise the same things, namely high security, fast scanning speeds and high performance, AVG Antivirus's latest updates seem to breath some truth into that line. AVG Antivirus Free seems to do everything a little bit quick like scanning, removing threats, installing and keeping the system quick.

The interface of AVG Antivirus Free is simple and easy to navigate. The icons are easy to recognize and the toolbar is a useful, opt-out feature it offers. A new quick fix, button makes AVG hassle-free. The new interface resembles older looks. AVG Antivirus is connected to cloud computing and user experience is added to the data they collect, but it's also out-out like the toolbar.

The new AVG LinkScanner is a useful and free separate download which scans likes posted on MySpace and Facebook to make sure you're not affected by malicious javascript sometimes found on those pages.

AVG Antivirus Free Edition features rootkit protection, adware and scamware protection and also features a gadget installable on Windows desktops. Also found within AVG's newest suite of PC protection tools is a registry scanner and broken shortcut remover bundled in its PC Analyzer.

Even though AVG Antivirus offers a tier of products, the free version offers ultimate protection with no costs and no extra price-tags. It doesn't even like to nag you!
