AVG Antivirus PRO is now discontinued so it will not receive any further updates. Since it's an anti-malware application, it's essential that users receive the newest updates to keep their computers protected. Therefore, the download links for AVG Antivirus PRO redirect you to other AVG products that still get regular updates.
The antivirus solutions provided by AVG quickly made it to the top, due to their ability to protect computers from the latest threats via strong shields against spyware and online malware.
The Free edition is packed with common functions that ensure a secure and virus-free experience for the average user. However, if in need of more advanced protection modules, one recommendation is AVG Antivirus.
This is a complete antivirus suite that aside from basic protection modules prepares and maintains a safe environment for surfing and social networking. A short summary of its features includes Anti-Malware/Anti-Spyware, Cloud Technology, Identity Protection, Smart Scanner, Link Scanner, E-mail and Social Network Protection and Safe Download Modules.
During the installation process, users are prompted to select the components to be deployed on the system. Contrary to expectations, installing it does not take up more than a few minutes of your time, nor does it require a system restart.
AVG Antivirus provides users with an elegant, professional looking interface that offers quick access to its features. The main window shows whether the Anti-virus, Link Scanner, E-mail Protection, Anti-rootkit, PC analyzer and Identity Protection are active (in overview mode), while in the left window you can opt for a scan, update, or configuration of scan options.
The Anti-virus component of AVG protects your computer system from viruses, worms, spyware and Trojans, while the Link Scanner blocks web-based attacks and network traffic when you're online.
The Smart Scan feature includes possibilities to scan the whole computer or specified locations. You can also schedule the software to perform scans on specified dates. We performed a full scan of our computer and while the entire process ran smoothly, it did take quite the amount of time.
E-mail Protection guarantees the integrity of incoming and outbound e-mails (including filtering of spam), while the PC Analyzer performs a complete check on your computer in order to find any problems regarding registry errors, junk files, fragmentation errors, and broken shortcuts.
The Identity Theft module serves for protecting your digital assets and blocks activities that lead to ID theft. In addition, you can rely on the Cloud Technology for an up-to date virus database that ensures day-to-day protection.
In conclusion, time spent with AVG Antivirus results in a safer, cleaner environment. If it’s not advanced enough for you, you can try the Internet Security Suite for additional features such as firewall or anti-spam capabilities.

welcome to this video today I will be doing another antivirus test today we will be testing AVG the free version and the test I will be running is I will be sending an infected email to myself and then I will be scanning my email with AVG to see if it does or does not detect the threat now what I'm going to do right now so that you can see I'm going to go ahead and update the virus definitions just to make sure they are fully up to date after which we will go ahead and run the scan now people like to ask why this is the specific test I like to run and the reason is a lot of hackers and criminals do like to attack via email and so having an anti-virus software that can detect those threats it's something that you do want to have however I would like to point out that the best antivirus on the planet would be you nothing beats education if you educate yourself you will become the best antivirus program for your computer all right the scan has completed and it looks like AVG has not detected anything so what I'm going to do is go ahead and remove AVG restart the computer and install a different antivirus and see what it does all right I removed AVG and restarted the computer and installed panda and the reason why is because panda in my own personal test usually scores the best and so I did run another scan it's the exact same type of scan that I ran with AVG and you can see the results here on the screen it found five results that AVG did not find now opening up the detailed report here we can see what the results were that it found in the email that I sent and so this test doesn't necessarily mean that panda is the best it just means that in this specific situation AVG would have failed and panda would have succeeded so again the reason why I like this test is because hackers and criminals love to send infected emails and I do want to be clear that it's difficult for any and all antivirus programs to stop and infected email once it's been open and an attachment has been clicked on or has been clicked on and that's again why I always say that the best antivirus is used the user however it does help to have a good antivirus that you can rely on to help you detect these threats and in this situation again panda detected five results that AVG did not detect
