3.0 out of 5 stars Another Windows AV product but with some pluses, 17 Mar. 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?)
This anti-virus/spyware software might be unique as it comes on a USB drive to allow installation on Netbooks. That said since all Netbook owner (more or less) will have internet access the benefit is less clear. Further, if you haven't got internet access you may not need AV software at all.

I found it a little confusing about what I was getting. I was getting anti-spyware but was unsure of the comprehensive nature of the anti-virus software from the pack description. In fact this is a full spec'd AV etc product and the manufacturer should make this clear.

Although it's meant for Netbooks I can see few features that allow it to work better on lower resourced machines - a shame as there is value in that.

Installation was a bit slow.I was advised to remove other anti-virus software which I did although the software could not do it itself and several restarts were needed. It then refused to continue installation but after leaving it for 30 minutes changed its mind and carried on.

There is no manual and the software is not without in installation problems. Its niche is the Netbook market but it needs to be more honed to this in the software specs. So, OK but a little disappointing.
