Considered by many to be a world-leading software product against all forms of malware, the free version of AVG Antivirus offers basic PC protection and some extra features to boost safety and make users feel relieved when it comes to data corruption, loss or theft.

Choosing components to install

Many components are bundled in the package and all of them are installed by default. Users may switch to custom setup mode to exclude any unwanted modules when it comes to email, web browsing and identity protection (can be separately installed), along with extra languages.

Comfortable interface and multiple scan modes

AVG adopts the Windows 8 UI look with flat buttons while keeping the interface neatly organized. The entire computer, removable drives or custom files and folders may be submitted for scanning. It is also possible to search for rootkits only, as well as to quickly scan selected files, folders and drives via the Windows Explorer context menu. Scan tasks may be scheduled.

Default or customized scans

Just as expected from a self-respectable av product, AVG has a well-structured default configuration to ensure first-time users with optimal performance. At the same time, it makes room for customization concerning the entire scanning behavior, a feature sought by advanced users. Settings can be altered when it comes to automatic virus removal, PUP and spyware reports, tracking cookies, archives, heuristics, the system environment, deep scans, rootkits, exceptions, scan speed, automatic PC shutdown and file extensions, among others.

Email, web browsing and identity protection

The email protection module verifies incoming and outgoing emails for malware, and it also filters spam. It supports POP3, SMTP and IMAP protocols. Online browsing and network traffic are secured by LinkScanner, while the identity protection component keeps track of applications' behavior and immediately blocks any suspicious programs that can lead to identity theft.

Performance and conclusion

Thanks to the adjustable scanning speed, users may enable fast scans that hog system resources, or decrease their speed and spare RAM consumption. AVG Antivirus Free delivers very good results regarding virus detection ratio, placing it amongst the least intrusive av products out there, and this is definitely appreciated by anyone.

To sum it up, those looking for a fast, reliable and efficient antivirus solution may at least give AVG Antivirus Free a try. Its virus definitions can be kept up-to-date with AVG Anti-Virus Definitions. Those looking for enhanced malware protection can test and/or purchase AVG Antivirus Professional or AVG Internet Security.
