AVG Free AntiVirus edition, offers a basic computer protection against virus and other threads that harm operating system and common applications, such as browsers and document creating packages.
The program's installation is a simple task that only requires an initial setup file; once it is fired, starts a downloading process to get the remaining components from the AVG site. This installation procedure offers several functions and even optional modules, such as safe browsing and identity protection. Users can skip them easily, saving installation time in the first stage.
AVG includes different scan types. The basic method, could be used to verify files and specific units; we found it very useful to perform a quick device verification. On this point, should be noted that the vast majority of today viruses are easily propagated hidden within removable drives.
In addition, it is possible to perform 'deep-scans'; this process takes a considerable time and system resources. However, it guarantees a clean system against viruses. Optionally these processes can be automatically performed at previously scheduled times. It is a feature found in most anti-virus programs, as the 'deep-scan' process consumes a significant amount of processor and RAM memory.
The program's interface, looks similar to Microsoft Windows, enabling a simple operation, even for those who are using the program the first time.
In addition, AVG Free AntiVirus offers email protection; this module works in real-time protecting the computer against incoming and outgoing emails. It is especially helpful when the emails include attachments or photos.
Another additional feature is its ability to detect spam-email; this is achieved through user configurable rules. This last module adds value to the package, and avoids having another specific program installed. Other modules, such as safe-browsing, allow to warn about suspicious link or black listed sites in real-time.
Finally, this program has am unique feature that allows to set the speed at which are performed the scanning processes, by adjusting the resources they can consume. This option enables to trigger the 'deep-scan' process while you're working with other applications without observing significant system slowdowns. AVG Antivirus Free edition is a tool that provides a more than acceptable virus detection level and also offers unique features.
