AVG PC TUNEUP 2011

Get the most out of your PC

You already know how AVG can protect you online. Now we take that expertise one step further by fixing problems that slow you down. AVG PC Tuneup 2011 provides 16 useful tools to help you get the most out of your PC.

  • Increase your internet speed
  • Free up disk space
  • Protect your privacy
  • Clean your registry and stabilize your PC
  • Improve your PC's performance
  • Recover and protect your personal files

Features:

Improve your PC's Speed, Performance and Stability

Registry cleaner keeps your computer from slowing down, freezing or crashing. All the changes you make are backed up and can be done quickly and easily. You can also reorganize files, as well as improve application response time, PC start-up speed and overall performance.

Free Up Disk Space

Disk cleaning tools remove duplicate and junk files from your hard disks, giving you back valuable space. You can also identify large files and save the ones you don't need to a removable drive.

Improve Your Internet Connection

Internet Optimiser automatically tunes your Internet connection settings to the type of Internet connection you use. Unlike similar products, the Internet Optimiser will test your connection settings before applying any changes.

Protect Your Privacy

Permanently delete files and wipe disks so your personal data cannot be easily recovered. You can choose from four different shredding options, ranging from fast to military-level safety shredding.

You leave traces when you surf the Internet, open documents or run programs. Track Eraser will help you protect your privacy by hiding these traces so that no one can see which websites you have visited or which documents you have recently opened.

Recover Lost Files

Recover files that have been damaged or accidently deleted within Windows. File Recovery also allows you to preview photos and documents while browsing through your list of found files.

System Requirements:

Minimum system requirements

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent AV but look for 2yr package 11 Jan 2011
Verified Purchase
AVG have come on leaps and bounds and now have a product to rival the best e.g. ESET. Good user interface, low impact on PC resources. Look for the 2yr deal for even better value for money (AVG Anti Virus, 2 User 2011, 2 Year Subscription).

5.0 out of 5 stars AVG Internet Security. Good BUY. 21 Jan 2011
Verified Purchase
After suffering numerous break downs on my original security system I spoke to an old friend who recommended AVG. I bought the item straight away and find it far superior to anything else I have used.
I am very pleased with the purchase and would recommend this sofware to all those looking for good Internet Security sofware.

5.0 out of 5 stars Recommended 27 April 2011
By Dave VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
AVG Internet Security 2011, 2 Users, 1 Year Subscription (PC)

There are lots of features in this version of AVG for the experienced user but there is also a default install for people like me with no real understanding of the issues.

The blurb for AVG mentions things like High Priority Mode, Social Network Protection, Smart Scanning, Link Scanner (which I believe scans every web page that you visit before it is loaded), Firewall, identity Protection and lots more as well as the basic antivirus/anti spyware.

The installation of AVG was very fast with almost no user intervention taking about 5 minutes plus a restart. The update that followed only took a minute and then information is displayed in a small window. A gadget was placed on the W7 desktop but this is and was easily removed.

The first time optimisation scan then followed which took about 20 minutes and no issues were detected. A root kit scan (whatever that is) took less than 1 minute and again all seemed to be OK. The blurb states that these are "Industry leading Scan Speeds" and that the scans are 3 times faster than previous versions.

One thing that did puzzle me what how email training is accomplished with a web based email account, that is I have no emails on my computer they are all stored on the email providers remote server. So I ignored this bit.

Another plus for me was that the firewall established its own rules. There was no user decision making which is good for the technically disadvantaged (like me) but maybe experienced users would like to adapt the rules.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
When friends or family ask me what anti virus software I recommend, I always tell them AVG free version.

I was intrigued by this version, and curious to find out what extras you get by paying for the Internet security version instead of getting the free antivirus only version.

AVG state the paid for versions automatically checks files before they are downloaded. I do not understand how it can, without downloading the software first! The free antivirus version checks all downloads.

My router has a built in Firewall and so does Windows. I also use common sense when browsing.

I will stick to my recomendation, use the free version.

5.0 out of 5 stars AVG Internet Security 2011 Review 30 July 2011
By sb
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Not being a technophile, I can only write about this product from the point of view of a technophobe, which I reckon most people who'se skin sees daylight and has real friends are. From this luddite perspective, I found the AVG internet security disc very easy to install. After the mandatory restart, the program opens up for the first time and is pretty self explanatory to follow.

I chose to run a full scan on my laptop - to be honest this took a couple of hours but was worthwhile as enough viruses were found to close down an average NHS Trust.

When I normally use my laptop, I can now do so safe in the knowledge that the AVG program is working behind the scenes, poised like a coiled snake to warn me of any attempts at online breaking and entering my computer may be subjected to.

A very easy to use and understand virus and internet protection package - well worth the price.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Unlike many antivirus software packages I have tried in the past, this one doesn't seem to get in your way.

I really like that they offer a basic version, for free, to all and sundry. It's nice to support them

3.0 out of 5 stars Could live without the bloatware 16 Jun 2011
By Seren Ade HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I've been using free versions of AVG's anti-virus software for years now and so was keen to try out the paid for version I've wondered about - whilst studiously clinging to AVG Free. I can't say that my experience with the full version has been positive enough that I would be tempted to pay to renew my license once this one expires.

I didn't have any problems installing the software, and the installation process itself was relatively quick and straightforward. However, as others have said, 'bigger' doesn't necessarily mean better. The system scan is slow. Much slower than AVG free (OK, you might think this indicates that it is in some way indicative of greater thoroughness), but it's also much slower than Kaspersky Pure - and doesn't seem to be any more accurate. I initially installed this on a desktop and my netbook. However, since the scan is a resources hog on my (2 month old) netbook to the point that other programmes are virtually unusable whilst it is running (the netbook isn't by any means the most powerful computer in the world, but more than meets the manufacturer's stated system requirements), I've uninstalled AVG full from here and reinstated its free sibling.

The number of times you get pushed to buy other AVG products and the inclusion of intrusive elements in a paid-for product are nuisance factors - and to have these kinds of code dragging down overall performance isn't impressive.
