AVG Internet Security Review

avg internet security is a comprehensive program that shields a Windows computer from web-based and malware threats. It is a light, but powerful program that includes many of the features you would expect from an antivirus program of today. It comes with a few unique attributes, like the capability of repairing damaged files and a “virus vault” which stores items that are suspect to help you verify their safety.

The interface is clean and simple to use. The dashboard shows scan progress, the current status of subscription, and a list services that are active or disable. It also shows when the last scan occurred, which is a nice feature for users who want to make sure they have their systems up to date. The hamburger menu at the top of the screen provides additional options for settings. This also allows you to change scanning protocols.

AVG has a good reputation in the field and its security products are some of the best available. The security system it uses doesn’t put a large burden on the performance of a computer which is vital since a security protection that causes lag will be quickly disabled by the user and not utilized at all.

AVG Ultimate includes all of the key systems and does an excellent job of ensuring your devices are safe from ransomware and peeping toms. AVG offers a less expensive version that does not include adware and phone support, yet still includes all of the essential systems.
