Top Customer Reviews
Upgrades are free and the on line support is good.
The "anti popup" software to block adware is much better than on previous versions although I also use Pareto Logic Anti Spyware which also removes adware and sits seamlessly with AVG 9.
Amazon are also selling at the moment for half the price you would pay on the AVG website!
PS: I use Windows XP Pro.
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.
There is nothing to dislike in this product, you get anti-virus, identity protection, firewall, email scanner, anti-spyware etc in one package. It automatically downloads the latest updates and will automatically scan by itself. With the Link Scanner you will see if sites are ok to look at, although I have had occasions when it has told me it is all right to look at a site, only for there to be something malicious on it.
You could go and buy these items included on this program individually, trying to get the best on the market, but it would cost a fortune, with this one product you get the whole bundle giving you peace of mind. If you have any problems there is help on the company website, but if this doesn't help you then they are quick at responding and giving a solution. All in all this is a great product that gives you peace of mind, is easy to use and has very good technical support.
Internet Security 9 offers everything - full protection from viruses, identity scams, dodgy emails, hackers, spyware, worms, trojans, anti-rootkit protection, anti-spam and includes a firewall, link-scanner and an effective pop-up blocker in one package which runs seamlessly in the background.
It is very simple to load and configure - the user is simply asked to click the icon for the type of computer being used - ie PC connected via one network or portable laptop/netbook connecting via several networks and this forms the basis of the settings, although these can be changed or tweaked. It is then quick to register and downloads the latest updates. If there have been any updates to the program then the latest version will download so that you always have the most up-to-date program (a feature not offered by some other competing products, eg Norton).
The default settings can be used for running background scans or you can set your own schedules - either way it's easy and you can simply load it and forget about it while being reassured by the visible active icons that the program is working behind the scenes. The only settings you may need to adjust are those of the firewall to allow (or deny) it to run programs but one click and then it's set.Read more ›
