5.0 out of 5 stars Nice, and cheap July 16, 2010
Access Method:Thin Software Download|Platform for Display:PC Download
Works pretty well without impacting performance, and best of all, it's the only AV I've found so far that works with 64-bit Windows XP.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does the job March 19, 2011
Access Method:Thin Software Download|Platform for Display:PC Download
The trick of any anti virus product is meeting in the middle of the road between maximum protection on one side and maximum system performance on the other. Balancing between these two is a difficult task for any manufacturer, and AVG seems to be doing a fairish job after 18 months on the job here.

I am running a small home network of between 6-8 systems at any given time, and AVG IS has been installed on 3 of them for the last year and a half. The flexibility and ease of scheduling updates of AV definitions and scans during off peak hours appeals to me greatly so as to minimize the impact on network and system performance. This keeps the solution nearly transparent which is what is to be striven for with any AV product.

Having a look at the log file at the junk that has been captured always brings a smile to my face as well.

Being warned ahead of time by the link scanner of malicious websites is great for less experienced users, as it helps prevents drive-by script attacks from being launched in the first place.

All in all, until I hear of something much easier to set and forget, I'll keep buying and installing it on new builds for some to come. Highly recommended.

Of course AVG is known for their free software anti-virus people can download. This software however must be paid for. At $40 it is no bargain either. One could buy from companies like Norton, McAfee, or Trend Micro for less. These are all established players in the anti-virus game unlike AVG--which is known as the free anti-virus company.
I had a problem with the install of my product and the support was frankly a joke. It said I could pay for support, for my brand-new program. Thanks AVG for throwing me under the bus. Pay for support for your product which is brand new? I could buy a legitimate product from any of the known companies above and have free support which doesn't consist of playing email tag with someone from India.
This thing is going right back for a return. I am going back with Trend Micro where I get free support and get to speak with a live human being. Until AVG gets real customer support it will only be good for free software downwloads! The safest thing you can do is not buy this software.

1.0 out of 5 stars No Support! April 4, 2010
By Bigmac
Access Method:Thin Software Download|Platform for Display:PC Download
I bought this product after reading about AVG and its glowing reviews. However, I had a problem with the install on my second computer. The firewall simply would not install. I tried the online fixes at AVG's Website but none of them worked.

I had to email "customer support," since apparently AVG is too cheap to provide a phone number. Someone named Lakshmi, I am sure from India, emailed me back but his fix did not work.

I would recommend Trend Micro over this want-to-be anti-virus. Trend has toll-free technical support and you get to speak with a live body, instead of being hung out to dry with second-rate support from India!
