I like AVG for many reasons but all that aside, I noticed a performance improvement on my PCs as soon as I installed this. I've used Norton and Kaspersky for years and without incident but I guess I got used to the overhead or performance hit I got.

I'm pleased with this product all around and here's why:

- Integrated Package: firewall/anti-virus/anti-spyware/anti-spam protection in a simple to train and integrated package. I downloaded it and had it up and running in just a few minutes.

- Performance: AVG doesn't cause a performance impact on my PCs; I noticed the difference immediately - wow! Also, the easiest Firewall Training process I've seen.

- Cost: AVG deserves my money since I've used their free virus software for so many years. But, seriously, they're an award winning vendor year after year and typically only $60-70 for a 2-year license - that's tough to beat and more than fair. All products can be downloaded from their site and you can easily install and try them for free for 30-days.

Trying not to sound too preachy: I like that Grisoft and ZoneAlarm offer free and excellent product versions to the general public so that folks who need this software can get it even if they can't afford it - it's in everyone's best interest really so that problems don't spread across the Net like a wildfire - but few companies take the route of giving away something for free to attract customers - giving away something of value that is.

I highly recommend to friends and clients.

Edit: I've had problems with BitTorrent working - firewall is too tight - I just could not tweak the firewall to get it to work. I exchanged about 5 emails with the tech support at GriSoft and they were extremely responsive and helpful.

5.0 out of 5 stars FINALLY! A SECURITY SUITE THAT DELIVERS! October 16, 2007
I have been through the lot! THIS IS THE BEST COMPREHENSIVE SECURITY SUITE I EVER HAD! And I had them all...(well, almost)

For years I sweared by NORTON - until two years ago it got so heavy and demanding it slowed my computer to a crawl. Then I gave McAFEE Internet Security a try which, although lighter, pestered me with pop-up messages. When that license expired I gave KASPERSKY Internet Security a try: real secure feeling and detailed settings control; however, a number of internet applications, although given full internet access, were slowed to a trickle.

About a month ago I downloaded the AVG INTERNET SECURITY as a 30-day trial. Not two weeks had passed and I decided that THIS IS THE ONE!

Light, heuristically effective (it even found a malware that KASPESKY failed to locate - and KASPERSKY has the best reputation on cleaning out everything!), no conflicts, email integration (although not with ThunderBird yet, a minor glitch), excellent AI and quiet.
This Suite contains the legendary AntiVirus that blew the whistle on BIOSHOCK's RootKit.

It may seem a bit pricey, yet keep in mind that it comes with a 2 YEAR license, not the usual 12 months that most other Security applications come with.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

UPDATE [April 26, 2008]: AVG offered the FREE option to upgrade to v8.0 for the remainder of the license to every customer that had bought v7.5. Now, THIS is a company that knows how to built customer loyalty!

I read the other reviews and am baffled by what they are complaining about. I have never had any of those problems when installing this program. I have installed in on over 20 different computers, from a Pentium 3 to a Core 2 Duo and an AMD X2. It has worked for me every time, on every install.

The program requires a respectable amount of system resources; not too much for what it is doing for me. I have even run it on an old Dell Latitude C510 laptop with a Pentium 3 and only 512mb of RAM and had no problem. If you are planning on running this program on anything less/older than this, you will probably have problems.

Killing viruses? Never had it ask more than once. I recommend you look through the setup and configure it to your liking. Mine is set to annoy me at every little change, and has the firewall shut down near-completely, asking me for every little action to pass through it. You don't have to get so extreme and this thing will run smoothly, and efficiently without you knowing it is there.

Go through the setup and fine tune it to your liking. There are forums out there to help you configure it. Lastly, I'd question the other reviewers that had so many problems. Read the IT blogs and forums and you will see that AVG is one of the most popular on their personal machines, if not THE most popular. Kinda says something, doesn't it?

I purchased AVG Internet Security after trying the free version and testing another anti-virus program. I find AVG easy to set up and use, and generally I like the interface. The reason for my not-so-glowing review is twofold:

1) I have the program set up so it scans web pages for 'bad stuff.' The problem is that on a Google search page, it has to scan all the linked pages the search found and this take a bit of time.

2) More serious is the fact that I've used their tech support online form almost a dozen times in the last three weeks to get some simple questions answered (including how to deal with the issue above), and they have never contacted me. More frustrating is the fact that the web site has no phone or email contacts that you can easily find. I finally sent a nasty email to someone there, but if this serious lack of support continues, I'll look for another anti-virus program when its time to renew.

June 2008 update, after sending nasty-grams to them about lack of support, someone finally got back to me, apologizing for this, and told me the company is in some transition. They told me how to turn off the web page scanning feature, and I've had no complaints about using the software ever since. My critique of their lack of tech support, may change at some point, but I'll have to see how responsive they are in the future. Bottom line though, I do like this anti-virus software.
