avg anti virus / free edition?

has anyone used this, and is it any good?

I’ve been using it for about a year or so now, and it’s worked well for me. But I use Firefox & don’t do any peer-to-peer filesharing, also I’m almost always behind a firewall… so I’m not a high risk.

I use Avast! for over a year and great. It is also free with free updates.http://www.avast.com

I’ve used AVG for about a year with Internet Explorer and it has worked fine. I work for a small company of about 200 people and we actually have a disk of utilities for employees when they have computer problems at home that includes this program. I recommend it. I also use ZoneAlarm which is also free and works well as a fire wall.

avg is certainly a lot better than mcaffee

in that it doesn’t annoy me daily [unless I am up at 3am when the automatic scan is scheduled for]

but then again, I can’t be a reliable test of it because I don’t use outlook, or IE [when possible]

thanks everyone :smiley:

I’ll give it a try ( fingers crossed ) :wink:



Avast is much better IMAO.


I’ve been using avast for about a year now. Works great (but I’ve never tried AVG).

AVG looks like they developed it in win3.1…literally.

But it works.

Been using it for 2 and a half years with no probs…


Yeah, that’s kinda what stopped me from downloading it. I thought it was just an old version of the pro edition (but they’re now working on free edition v7).

ok just a little update…

installed avg 6 / it locked up my internet

removed avg and installed avast , which seems to work fine

new version of avast coming out on 11.13.04
