isn't it free?

isn't it free?



The basic version is yes. The paid for version has more features and offers better protection.

ive had my pc for almost 9months, and all ive ever had is avast free edition

so why would i pay for this?

Before anyone mentions it: No, I do not wish to bank with Barclays, thanks. Doing so would be a very expensive way of getting "free" anti virus.

AVG do a paid for Anti Virus version which RRP is £29.99, but the deal doesn't seem to mention the extra features anywhere. The paid for version adds online shield, password protection and more frequent updates.

For the people voting cold because you use the free version ... I guess you don't buy cheese at the supermarket because they offer you squares of it to taste at the counter? Idiots, it's not a like for like comparison.

It is a like for like comparison because the free version uses the same scanning engine as the paid versions, so it will stop just as many viruses. The only thing which might catch the free version out is the slower release of updates (once a day I think). Not everybody wants the extra paid stuff like shopping protection, anti-spam etc. Avast, Avira and many other free antivirus which have a paid version are the same, i.e. the antivirus engine is identical and it's all the extra stuff you pay for...

Terrible analogy. Free anti virus is perfectly adequate for most people. I use avast and get regular updates. Your cheese analogy suggests the taster is not as good because it doesn't last or you can't take it away I assume. My free anti virus has been on my machine for tears, doesn't have Norton bloat and keeps me virus free.

gives you the comparison between the free Antivirus vs Internet security.

thanks op, I got the AVG internet security to replace my expired Kaspersky.

heat & thanks :-)

And forgot to say, the value is great. I have three PC's in the family so exactly what I was after .... and for two years

thumbs up

I prefer Eset smart security for free tyvm.

I love the way you say it's a like for like comparison and then tell me the difference is that you get less frequent updates with free version. Hmmm that seems like a difference to me. And before I hear any more of "oh I've had the free version and never had a virus" I could quite easily do the same without any anti-virus on my computer at all. The point is, that some people want the extra features or more frequent updates and therefore this deal is a good price.

It's a like for like comparison because they both offer pretty much identical levels of virus protection to the end user. The extra stuff in the paid versions are personal preference and will help with things like spam but won't offer you more protection from viruses.

One of the major antivirus testing labs says the same thing, free AVG will protect you from viruses just as well as paid...

Nope ... Less frequent updates = not the same. We can do this forever, because you're missing the point. I'm not saying that the free version doesn't offer protection, what I'm saying is that you shouldn't vote cold based on the fact that there is a free version available because it's not the same. I don't know why I'm wasting my time actually, because this site is almost worthless these days ... It's not a deal unless there's a half naked woman in the post

I was going to leave this as obviously we aren't going to agree, but I would just like to update my previous belief that AVG updates once a day.

The AVG Free manual states: "AVG AntiVirus Free Edition 2015 is by default scheduled to look for new virus database updates every four hours."
The AVG Internet Security (and Antivirus) manual states: "AVG Internet Security 2015 is by default scheduled to look for new virus database updates every four hours."

The paid versions can be manually set to 2 hours but because the AVG updates are not released at a fixed schedule, it doesn't mean you are going to get updates any quicker by doing this. AVG themselves recommend leaving it at the default of 4 hours.

Whether you think this or the other things in the paid versions are worth the money over using the free version, is up to you...

Really am so shocked at the coldness. Lolz.
Seriously 2yrs for complete protection against 'everything' at this price is fab!?

Deal is over now. Just tried to purchase and it's "No Longer Available". Shame.
