AVG Virus Protection

Updated on June 5, 2018

AVG Virus Protection

AVG Virus Protection is what I use nowadays. Downloading the free AVG Virus Protection was probably one of the better decision that I made recently. The AVG Virus Protection gives me excellent virus protection for my computer, especially for someone like me who is online throughout the day.

Actually the AVG Virus Protection (Free Edition) is giving me top notch virus protection for free! It gives me what i need to prevent virus attacks and protects against virus and malware while i surf and read my emails. Best of all, did i mention that it is free? Anyway below are 2 features that i found to be worth my download. Moreover the AVG Virus Protection does not have any "trial" or "time-out" functionality. Every option provided in the program is fully functional for the life of the product:

AVG Virus Protection - Email Scanner

To ensure that your AVG Virus Protection is up and running, checking for viruses in my emails, there is a plug-in to be installed. This AVG Virus Protection plug-in will ensure that my email client is protected. For Outlook users, you got to install the AVG MS Outlook Extension but if you are using any other programs, you should install the Personal Email Scanner Service.

AVG Virus Protection - LinkScanner

The AVG Virus Protection comes with the LinkScanner who essentially scan through all the search results on the Yahoo, Google and MSN serps. It also gives me an evaluation of the safety level of each website. On top of this, it also checks all the internet url that i type in.

AVG Internet Security Virus Protection

This is where I get to the full licensed software. The AVG virus protection is a award-winning antivirus technology that has been proven to protect computer systems and is certified by many testing agencies. Once you have paid for the software, you will get the complete suite of AVG Virus Protection that can be offered; Anti-Virus, Anti-Spyware, Anti-Spam, Web Protection & Firewall.

This will give you a comprehensive protection against all known online threats. It is also very popular and is used by millions around the world. Only issue i have is the price of $54.99, which is pricer than a number of internet security suite. Nevertheless, after my experience with the free AVG Virus Protection, i am pretty keen as well.

    I've used it since the V6 too and haven't had any problems with it or viruses.

    Hi Jared,

    I just went to the AVG site, and nowhere on there did I find a free version, as in forever, other than the free trial version. Am I missing something?
