AVG AntiVirus 2014 – A Quick Review

AVG AntiVirus 2014

You definitely need to have antivirus protection installed on all your PCs. There are numerous and good quality free antivirus products readily available in the market so there’s just no excuse for going without protection ! AVG AntiVirus FREE 2014 is certainly a good choice and once installed, it does a good cleanup job plus it turns out to be a great score in any kind of malware-blocking tests.

Here is a quick AVG Anti-Virus 2014 review

AVG Technologies began in 1991 and is now one of the biggest players in the antivirus software market with corporate offices in Europe, the United Kingdom and the United States. AVG Anti-Virus is one of a handful of the best-performing antivirus software products in the world.

AVG AntiVirus 2014 – Installation options –

The product itself is free, but AVG always suggests to launch a 30-day trial of their full security suite. You get that option during installation, and a banner across the bottom of the main window repeats the offer each time you launch the antivirus.

One row of big buttons on AVG’s main window let you access components like computer protection and Web browsing protection. Another row links to an array of other solutions from AVG. You can launch a one-time performance-fixing scan, and optionally install AVG’s tune-up solution.

You are also provided with links to the company’s mobile apps, and to a partner-licenses app for ensuring you have the latest drivers. And a whole separate “More from AVG” page displays the company’s entire line of products, most of which require separate purchase.

Not to worry. You are actually given free antivirus protection. You just need to resist the temptation to purchase the various optional add-ons.

AVG Antivirus 2014 offers a Rescue CD

Like most security companies, AVG offers a Rescue CD for situations where the antivirus can’t install. The Rescue CD is a blast from the past, with a totally text-driven interface, but it offers a full collection of tools, not just an antivirus scan.

Effective Malware Removal

Once you get past the installation process, you’ll find that AVG does a good job cleaning up all messy, malware-infested test systems.

In a case study, it detected 78 percent of the samples and scored 6.4 points, narrowly beating Norton AntiVirus with 6.3 points. Of products tested using malware collection, only Bitdefender and the cleanup-only Jumpshot tool did better, with 6.6 and 6.5 points respectively.


AV-Test, torture tested AVG Anti-Virus 2014

One of the most respected and objective independent IT-security institutes, AV-Test, torture tested AVG Anti-Virus and scored it for its ability to protect and repair. AV-Test also tested AVG for usability. The test results show that AVG is one of the very best-performing antivirus software products and makes it into the top handful of products in its category.

AVG Antivirus 2014 does not intrude on you unnecessarily

AVG does not intrude on you unnecessarily. It watches for idle time before it tries to scan. And it is intelligent enough to ignore any files that it has already scanned. It has a game mode so that you can concentrate on a multiplayer game without enduring scheduled updates and scans. AVG also guards your digital gaming profiles against hackers who crawl the web to steal your World of Warcraft pets and sell them for real money.
