used to be but rubbish now. you'd have to pay me to put avg on my pcs
#6
While cheap, I agree with some of the previous comments based on my experience with the free version - slow and will leave your computer much more susceptible to viruses than a proper anti virus such as McAfee (which is used by some of the largest companies in the world, banks, etc. for their corporate network). I think McAfee is normally quite a bit more expensive but you get it for free with o2 Home broadband

I've had no problems with the Free AVG so far. (However I can't comment on the paid version) Run of several PC's. I have also tried Microsoft's free Anti Virus (which replaced Defender) http://www.microsoft.com/Security_Essentials/ so far I've been impressed. Not sure why you would need to buy Anti Virus unless you need tech support? :whistling:

I think avast is much better, and free. AVG used to be good, but has become a resource hog in the last few versions. (I've used both the free and paid versions, and have noticed computers speeding up when I removed them and replaced them with either avast or Comodo's solutions).

Alternatively, the MS Security Essentials above has good reviews, and Comodo offer a free well reviewed product including Anti-virus and a Firewall.

The names are links to the free downloads.

Use comodo internet security suite myself, which is free, and as far as I can tell does the job well!

True.

If you are using a mobile broadband stick, you are using Wi-Fi out and about, or you just have a (ADSL/dial-up) modem in your PC, it's still worth having though.

As far as free antiviruses go, I've been for a long time with Avast and AVG. I've had some very serious virus issues during this time due to some files which I had downloaded - which neither antiviruses picked up, even though they should. Since I've been with McAfee, I have had no problems whatsoever - it picked up a number of potential viruses over the last few months and seems to be doing its job. If I download a potentially suspicious file and it passes the McAfee scan test, I usually feel quite good that the file or program is clean. When I used to do the same with AVG / Avast, it provided no reassurances whatsoever because I knew that many / most viruses would pass through their nets anyway.

I also recently installed Ubuntu on my primary hard drive and there I don't use any antivirus at all ;)

******** u r way behind, yes mcafee used to be good but it dropped down the rankings a good while back and never recovered.

At this price avg is a must buy, it is maybe not the best but it is better than most, is very very easy to configure and use.

Have a look here for some reviews

I was using AVG until middle of last year so it would be surprising if they had improved that much since. I am talking from personnal experience only - having had my computer and all my precious files on it gathered over the years nearly destroyed because I was too cheap to pay for a proper antivirus.

With respect to the link you are providing, you may also want to look at the CNet website where the average score from 108 users for AVG antivirus was 2 / 5
http://reviews.cnet.com/internet-security-and-firewall/avg-antivirus-8/4852-3667_7-32887573.html?tag=psum

I bought a TV from an awful retailer called Beyond Television on the basis that they had excellent rankings on some web site. I realised later on these were fake when I had a problem with my TV and they took a £200 restocking fee when I had it returned. Looking more closely you could see several dozens rankings posted on the same day then not a single review for weeks, etc. Many of these reviews posted on the internet - especially sites that average scores from a large number of users - cannot be trusted.

AVG is a giant pile of crap.

Resource hogging to ******y, with the industries worst detection rates. It is genuinely one of those products that cause more harm to systems than it solves.
#19
a lot of people i know say avira as its free and good for netbooks as it hardly uses any resources is that right?
#20
whys this expired?? they are still taking orders.

ppl are right in the fact that the software is slightly resource hungry...however...its not bad on the virus pickup and something is better than nothing.

i would go for kapaski ( dodgy spelling ) as you can pick up a retail 3 user pack for £20 )

Have to agree with most peoples coments that AVG are no longer what they used to be. I am on Comodo antivirus with Zone alarm as my firewall all seems good at the moment
#22
This may not be honoured. I just checked with my AVG account manager and the pricing listed is far less than the agreed rrp price. Its cheaper than the OEM rate.

Well lets put it this way, I picked up 6 copies 4 weeks ago when it was £3.95 on Zavvi and they all turned up no probs, just remember that this is a previous version, even though it updates to the new version. :thumbsup:
#24
Avira pretty good for a free option too, getting some good reviews lately.
#25
take a look at threatfire.... I too have been caught out with antivius programs... I used avast for ages.. now i am using the microsoft essentials and threatfire.. see how it goes...

God help you if you ever want to get rid of Zone Alarm in the future. It sticks to your system like superglue. ZA's own install doesn't remove it and neither does CCleaner.

you do realise most viruses dont make tyhemselves obvious? Saying you have no problems doesnt mean that AVG free hasnt happily let loose viruses on your system. AVG Free let 3 trojans on to my PC over a few years and never ever picked them up! :w00t:

Good old kaspersky came to the rescue and immediately spotted them (as did Mcafee). I was trialling the two as alternatives to AVG.

Hope you were sure they were viruses. I trialled McAfee, and it helpfully nuked the VNC remote desktop tool and also some older applications without asking (the apps were UPX compressed EXE files, and it nuked them solely because they were compressed with UPX, and it couldn't decompress them...)

I had 3 trojans. 100% confident. That will teach me for using limewire years ago! AVG never spotted the trojans in 4 years!

In response, to your coments. I agree some things can slip through and I don't beleive any Anti Virus is 110% effective. However going on past experience. I had no trojans with AVG. I did notice MS Security Essentials picked up some minor actvity that Mcafee did not. Be careful what websites you visit and what links you click on and you should be ok with most antivirus.
