I have AVG free on my laptop and my tablet and it works perfectly. It warns me of imminent threats and removes them efficiently. I see no need to purchase a more expensive Product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant as always 8 April 2013
Verified Purchase
I always use avg products and have never once had a virus or other problem. I really like the 'task killer' feature - by far the quickest and easiest way to stop unwanted apps slowing your phone down.

5.0 out of 5 stars On my PC, tablet and 'phone 6 May 2013
By A. Ward
Verified Purchase
I have this installed on all three devices. The Android version is much slimmed down from the fully featured Windows PC version but still seems to work (never had a problem reported on Android). It monitors e-mail and web use and also keeps track of the amount of data you are using so that you can avoid exceeding the data limit (& very useful in case your mobile provider tries to claim that you have used more than your allowance and tries to charge you!)
