5.0 out of 5 stars One of the more mature brands, 14 April 2010
This review is from: AVG Internet Security v9, 3 User, 1 Year subscription, Netbook Card on USB (PC) (CD-ROM)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
With a plentiful choice of brands and services - AVG have carved out a reputation as a trusty 'old reliable' in the crowded 'protection market'.
This particular package is presented in the form of a USB stick (clever). Netbooks, or any other PC without a disk drive, will suit this. Before I proceed further, let me just answer the burning question. No, the drive is not going to be any use as a memory stick as it's a few MB, no more.
The software loaded fast and - as the old line goes - did not slow down my system to any noticeable degree. A couple of software 'conflicts' needed to be ironed out on my part but AVG did not buckle under the pressure.
What is on offer:
As with most Anti-Virus software, they tend to 'scare' the user into getting protected - with ever more fanciful names and descriptions of generic facilities.
Featured include:
- Identity Protection
- Webshield for social networking
- Advanced firewall (Windows tends to reject secondary Firewalls and I personally, prefer to use Windows alone).
-Linkscanner for safe searching & surfing
- ID protection
- Anti-phishing / spam for safer email use.

In summary: a trusty old reliable that will provide useful, general protection.

One minor quibble:
If the manufacturers had included a recyclable USB stick (i.e enough memory to make it useful for day-to-day use) it might be a slightly pricier package, but even better.
