4.0 out of 5 stars Nice antivirus, but hold the spam 23 Jun 2009
By Bernardette Lugner TOP 1000 REVIEWER
AVG is the company whose free antivirus product is well-liked. In this paid-for version, you get - in addition to antivirus, anti-spyware and internet link scanning - antispam, rootkit detection, a firewall, and technical support by email and phone. With so many capable competitors, would this be good enough? Before you can install AVG, you have to get online and request a licence number which is emailed to you. After that, installation is straightforward.

The antivirus and antispyware components are just like the free ones, protecting and updating automatically and without bothering you at all. I am very happy with these. Scheduled virus scans of the whole PC produced a minor, noticeable slowdown, so I would time these for periods when you will not be working. Rootkit detection (looking for disguised malware) is a separate job which you have to run manually whenever you feel like it. Weekly? Annually? I have no idea. After a somewhat obscure setup process and asking for a few permissions to connect, the firewall has gone on working quietly, replacing the Windows firewall.

Most of us rarely encounter viruses, but we get hit by spam every day. Alas, antispam is the part of AVG Internet Security that most needs improving. It merely scans your email and marks the spam. It does not link with your email program unless you use Microsoft Outlook. As a user of Vista's Windows Mail, I had to set up my own junk mail folder, and set up my own message rule to direct marked spam to it. You have to do the same if you use Outlook Express. AVG antispam also fails to create blacklists and whitelists for email senders. You must do this by hand. I cannot see any way of marking emails as "spam" or "not spam" so the blacklist and whitelist will soon get out of date.

5.0 out of 5 stars LIGHT, FAST, SECURE - AND OLD SCHOOL HONEST 31 Oct 2009
By NeuroSplicer TOP 500 REVIEWER
Verified Purchase
I am using AVG INTERNET SECURITY 9.0 for over a month now. But I never bought it. What I did buy was an older AVG security suite (v7.5), 2 years ago. Nevertheless, whenever a later version becomes available, the suite updates itself to the latest version -- FREE! It happened at least three times over these past years, with versions 8.0, 8.5 and recently 9.
You have to respect a company that does this! With AVG a 2 year license means you shall have the latest security suite for 2 years (and not just new database definitions). Can you imagine buying McAfee or Norton 2009 in October and in March been offered their later release, free?

As a security suite, AVG is light and reliable. It does not tax my system resources either idle or actively scanning, and one can trade speed for resources with a scalable slider. The interface is user friendly and intuitive. The default settings will protect the initiate user from confusing alerts and warnings. On the other hand, the experienced user can dive in and configure the suite to suit him best.

The only thing I did not like with v9.0 are the icons in the main interface, which I found bland and boring. But appearances are a very minor thing when it comes to security suites.

5.0 out of 5 stars Five Strars, Not enough 24 Dec 2009
By Bazpal TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Verified Purchase
This is an excellent product well worth the money, which isn't a lot.
I can recommend this, five stars from me, But five stars are not enough, this is a ten star product.
You can keep, Norton, McAfee, & all the rest, AVG is by far the best.
Easy to install, easy to setup, once everything is up & running, just relax, as AVG will take good care of your computer without nagging you all the time.
This is version 8.5, But once you have it installed AVG will upgrade you to the new version which is 9.
You must uninstall any other security you have running first before you put AVG into your computer, Norton, & McAfee have a tool for this which you can download from thier websites.
Well woth the money, buy it, & you won't be sorry.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good 16 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase
After having used lots of different types of security software, I find AVG the best by miles. It is low on system resources so good for netbooks, as well as laptops and desktops, whilst protecting me from threats. I'm very happy and will be sticking with AVG

4.0 out of 5 stars Good product, good price. 27 Mar 2010
Verified Purchase
Recieved intact, though not in the box shown in the item listing, it was a small A5 envelope, with a disk inside, and instructions as to how to install it. But for the price, and for what you get, its absolutely brilliant. You get fully professional AVG, fully updated and supported, for 2 years, and it can be installed on 3 machines.

Does what it says on the tin(almost). Fast delivery, and cheap product. Happy to recommend this product to those that want to move on from AVG free, and get something more comprehensive, without forking out 60 euros a year for a licence for only one machine. The built in AVG firewall can be slightly problematic, but all in all, its a good product, and stresses your system alot less than anything that McAfee, Norton, or Kasperski can offer you.

4.0 out of 5 stars Internet Security 6 Mar 2010
Excellent delivery from supplier, with clear instructions for installation. The only reason I have not given it 5 stars is that it arrived in cardboard sleeve, but I would have preferred CD to have been boxed to enable extra protection when "filed" away.
