Almost PerfectPosted .
It’s undeniable that our computers need protection. I have been the victim of malware/viruses in the past (three years ago). There’s a certain panic that runs through you when you realize that all of your documents, files and photos might not be accessible. Then comes another level of anxiety when you think about your passwords that are connected to sites that you frequented. Have those passwords been compromised? All of this frantic unfolds in the span of the first ten minutes all while you restart your computer thinking that doing the restart will miraculously fix the invasion. Since then, I’ve been extremely careful when visiting sites (news, YouTube, entertainment news, gaming sites, etc.). Even being careful still subjected me to those ANNOYING ‘Congratulations’ pop-ups that force you to close out your browser only later you discover that there’s a hidden malware inside your computer because of it. I decided to give AVG Security a go to allow myself peace of mind. Yes, I was already using a browser that had various web securities built into itself but didn’t remotely have the features that AVG Internet Security offers. But my current experiences with AVG are a mixed bag of good and bad. There are A LOT of security options: File Shield scans any files added onto your PC. Enhanced Firewall Webcam Protection Sensitive Data Shield One that I like is Anti-Spam protection. I hate seeing SPAM in my email and yet no matter how many times I’ve marked certain emails as Junk/Phishing/SPAM, there is always that string of junk mail that makes it into my inbox all because some of the body of it is worded differently than the previous. The Email Shield scans the inbound emails and their attachments. However, the Anti-Spam is meant for MS Outlook email accounts only. In the AVG anti-spam filter settings, you will have to enter the Subject lines that the Junk emails will usually contain such as RE: Netflix, RE: PayPal to get a fine filter applied to your email account. It’s not 100% perfect but I believe that the program is learning the more it’s used. There’s a Quarantine Tool where an isolated space is created for the dangerous file to be stored or can be sent to the AVG Threat Labs for analysis. And then there’s File Shredder that nukes sensitive files permanently compared to simply sending the file to the Recycle Bin for deletion. AVG also has an AVG Secure Browser. At one time or another, we all have experienced those notices that read: CONGRATULATIONS! You Won (insert prize here)! Then you have to close out the browser entirely and reopen it only to have that same pop-up return later on. And then you have to find the PUP (Potentially Unwanted Program) that is residing inside of your computer and remove it. If you don’t know where to look for the malware, it can be frustrating. Most people aren’t even aware that malware has been injected into their system because of those PUPs. Using the Secure Browser eliminates those opportunities of malware being introduced into your computer. I also love the ad blocker. More and more we are seeing various news sites being laced with all sorts of ads and data tracking mechanics whenever you just want to simply read an article. There are a lot of times where I want to watch a trailer for a movie or a game on YouTube but sometimes, I have to sit through an entire commercial to watch what is a commercial. The Secure Browser eliminates both the ads and data collecting. There are a lot of settings for your browsing security but it won’t feel overwhelming if you’re not exactly a tech-savvy user. My only complaint with the browser is that it lacks a Dark Mode option. Maybe they will update it down the road. And if you’re just wanting to know if your computer is safe then you can simply open the Internet Security shortcut and you will be informed if anything in your system has been compromised. Computer-Web & Email- Hacker Attacks- Privacy & Payments: all are reviewed and will be given a green checkmark. With all the positive features that I have mentioned, I can’t help but feel that AVG is trying to ‘upsell’ me on other features that I assumed were included with the initial package. The AVG Secure VPN isn’t included. Yes, there’s a Free Two Month Trial but it requires you to enter payment information which you will have to cancel before the trial comes to a close. Also, when you do open the Internet Security scan, even though everything checks out with the green checkmarks, at the bottom of the window there is a message that reads: You’re Not As Protected As You Think. I click on the tab and the results reveal that my disk space is being occupied by “pests”, there are broken registry items and other programs that are “slowing down your PC”. All of these issues are marked in red, looking as if it’s imperative that they are fixed. When I click on the Resolve All tab, I am brought to AVG Tune-Up which is ANOTHER subscription fee. When I declined to subscribe to the Tune-Up and the VPN services, I was later subjected to a few pop-up notifications that reminded me that I wasn’t getting all facets of service. These notifications have seemed to have stopped recently in the past three days since using the AVG Internet Security program for over the past week. The AVG Internet Security offers A LOT in its base subscription model that will allow you to explore the internet without the worry of data collecting, malware and overall hacking hanging over your head. It does what it promises. However, experiencing the ‘upsell’ pop up notifications cheapen the experience of a yearly subscription model.I would recommend this to a friend

Great at the core, better with changesPosted .
The AVG Internet Security is a nice little package, you get most of the protection you need, for a very nice price. The installation is straight forward, browse to the redemption page and enter your code, the nice thing is the product works for 5 devices. The software comes with "Full Protection" which keeps you protected from Hacker Attacks, protects your payments and privacy. "Basic Protection" is also included protecting your Computer, plus Web and Email. You can perform your basic scan by clicking "Scan Computer" or click the gear for other scans. Which include Computer Scan, Deep Scan, USB/DVD Scan, File or Folder, Performance or Boot-Time Scan. This is a fairly extensive list of scans, I am always a fan of boot-time scan as it is a little harder for malicious software to trick your computer when you are not booted into windows fully. You will have to click this to prep your machine for the scan. Overall I am happy with the software, but there are something that seem to pop up in your face to try and sell you additional software, such as their VPN and Performance (Tune-Up) software, so the Performance Scan I mentioned earlier will prompt you to install the trial or purchase the software. There is also some kind of pop up that jumps up off the task bar when turning on my machine or exiting a full screen application. Most can be informational while some can scare people into thinking they aren't protected and need to spend more money or they made the wrong purchase. The popups aren't as bad as some freeware out there though. AVG would have a more user friendly software if they did not mark out all of these vulnerabilities in your machine as "Your Current Location is Visible, and that's only 1 of 4 privacy issues we found" Of course this software would know, it has a lot of access to protect your machine, if you're protecting my "Web, Computer and Privacy" I would think that would be included. It would make more sense for me if AVG put a sort of "Tips and Tricks" or an "Additional Security" tabs somewhere to help people understand the protection they paid for, how to use some of the other scan options, and pitch their VPN and Tune-Up software. All in All I would recommend this product to those looking for budget friendly protection, but there are those I wouldn't recommend it to. Simply all of the popups, warnings and resolution button that does nothing but offer them protection for an additional fee would drive someone like my father to either think he did not get everything he paid for (as it has dedicated buttons in the app) or that this software does not "Fully Protect" him as it states. **As I was typing this I got a sizable pop-up on the bottom right-hand side of my screen warning me that my performance is not optimal and to click here to fix. It is a free download, but if I want full protection it is $49.99/year.**I would recommend this to a friend

Maintains your online securityPosted .
So its been a number of years since I’ve used any antivirus software. I’ve mainly been relying on Windows Defender (comes with Windows 10 by default), as well as browser script blockers, and common sense. Back when I had Windows 7 machines I routinely used antivirus software due to greater vulnerabilities, and greater exposure to online threats. In those days I alternated between ESET (paid) and Avast (free). A couple of years ago Avast acquired AVG, and incorporated the AVG offerings into their portfolio. I always had a positive experience with Avast, and it was routinely the top recommended free antivirus software available to broke college students. These days I exclusively browse on Firefox with the NoScript browser extension to protect me from malicious scripts online. Now I couldn’t say for certain say my computer was infection free. Windows Defender and Firewall do a pretty good job of protecting a computer, but are not as robust of a security suite for detecting malware and zero day vulnerabilities (new viruses/worms/vulnerabilities as they hit the wild). I installed the software on my two machines. One is a fairly new laptop that has had limited browser time and is mostly used for offline stuff. The other is my main tower that has been running on the same installation for almost 2 years (its overdue for a reformat). Running scans on both machines was pretty straight forward once you install the software and activate it. My 3 month old laptop was given a clean bill of health as well as my tower. So my browsing tactics have paid off. However, that shouldn’t discount what this antivirus suite has to offer. On top of basic antivirus features (spam filter, malware detection, etc). - improved firewall - ransomware protection for file folders you select - ability to disable your webcam - sensitive document protection – limits applications and users that can access your sensitive docs/info - fraudulent website detection to protect your payment info. - Installs on 5 devices So far I haven’t found any of these features to be intrusive. That’s a gripe I have about some of the other big players in the industry. Going through the scan process doesn’t take long – less than a minute on my laptop with a 250GB NVME drive. My tower took a bit longer, north of 2 minutes – I have a 250GB NVME, 250GB SSD, 2TB SSHD, and 1TB HDD. I expected this one to take longer just for the volume of drives and the slower speed ones. I’ve monitored my system resources as well. Both systems register the program as a nothing blip when its running in the background. Even with a scan running, the system resource hit is still pretty small – maybe around 5% CPU usage. So far I haven’t put to test with any malware/spyware intrusions. However, my experience in the past with Avast was pretty positive, and did a good job with threat detection. Overall the software is pretty good. For someone like me, I go to a lot of lengths to protect myself online that your average person would not put up with. This software provides a solid backup plan to people only utilizing Windows Defender. Compared to free software, AVG certainly provides a more robust solution, and its not trying to upsell you to the ‘paid version.’ I do think you can get away with the free software if you are somewhat tech savvy, and are OK with he buy-up prompts. This software is the best value for new users, non-tech savvy users, and anyone a concerned with their online security.I would recommend this to a friend

Good overall protectionPosted .
Internet Security (5 Devices) (1-Year Subscription) - Android|Mac|Windows AVG Internet security has a very light footprint on performance. It slows down boot times by only about 2 seconds, that will vary on the machine. I have tested this on Windows 10 only. Let me start with one thing that is wrong, but maybe just be for me. The web login does not work at all. I installed the software on the first machine and used the supplied activation code provided. After successful activation I was asked to create an account, I did. On the next machine I installed the software and used my account to activate the software, it activated as expected. I then went to the avg.com web site and logged in using my account information I created the first time. As far as the web site sees, I have no subscriptions and it suggests I buy one. I rechecked both machines and both say my subscription is active. I’ve logged out and back in on the machines and it works as expected. However, the web site still says no subscriptions and wants me to buy one. I am using the same log on and password when installing, as I am when logging into the web site. 3 calls to support could not remedy this. They can see my subscription and my account, but the 2 will not link together. I can use my account information to install the product, I just can’t see the machines from the web site. The machines can only see themselves, so each installation is a standalone. Ok, so that is broken for me and can’t be fixed. Now the product itself. I have used AVG free in the past and was happy with what it did. This is so superior to the free version it doesn’t even compare. The antivirus stopped everything I through at it. It was a little slower than my other antivirus that I use, but it did it without a problem. By a little slower I’m only talking about 2 or 3 seconds. The firewall is a little hard to find in the settings, but you can find it. When first installed it installs with a setting of just checking the site for issues and then approving or blocking them. You can configure the firewall to ask before setting a rule. When set up this way it will ask and you have options of allow, block, and a check box to remember or not. This is the way I set up my personal machines. Nothing goes in or out without asking first. When setting up a machine for someone else I just let the firewall do its own rule making. You can add or remove rules, block sites, allow sites, all the normal stuff. There are no parental controls that I could find. For the price this is a usable and safe option. I would consider using this on machines where you don’t need parental controls.I would recommend this to a friend

Easy Install-feel protected nowPosted .
The installation on my desktop completed without any issues in about 20 minutes. Once finished it prompted me to start a full scan of my PC. It took some time to scan for advanced threats and it found one issue related to sensitive documents being visible. One click of the RESOLVE button had it fixed. It doesn't get any easier than that! It then told me my location was exposed but in order to resolve that a paid subscription would be required as I guess this is outside the scope of this product. I am now protected from a virus, risky web sites, bad email attachments, hacker attacks, and ransomware attacks. For the casual user that's all you have to know but for the advanced user there are many advanced settings to tweak the program to better suit your particular needs, especially in the area of the firewall. There is even a firewall log to see who may be attempting to get into your computer. There is a file shredder included to really delete sensitive documents and files. That's a nice addition. For the more casual user there is a web browser included that offers default protection from many of the bad elements one can encounter when surfing the internet. I also installed the package on my laptop. It took 15 minutes start to finish which included the post install scan and that is not a fast laptop. I have not noticed any slowdown loading pages when surfing. Now that it has been installed for a few days I am getting a NAG SCREEN to sell me the VPN to further protect me. I’m not a fan of being hounded for an up-sell This is a necessary addition to any computer. You install it and hope never to have to use it but its good to know it is there.I would recommend this to a friend

Light on devices, could use more featurePosted .
AVG internet security is an easy to install, one purchase for up to 5 devices including Android and windows. Setup is very straightforward and doesn't require any experience at all. features are ok, it does protect you from harmful viruses, and worm, and offers email scanner if you want it. the biggest issue I have with it is that you will need to buy and unlock more feature and that AVG keeps popping up asking you to do so. Yes you can disable them but why not include them in the software in the first place. Scanning your computer or phone is fairly fast and it gives you the feeling of being protected. It doesn't eat up a lot of memory and background services are not a lot like other anti virus or internet security software. when booting or restarting, AVG seems to not slow your device down. This is a good purchase for someone who just want to install internet security and forget about it on multiple devices, and the price is right.I would recommend this to a friend

Comprehensive ProtectionPosted .
AVG has been my go-to free antivirus solution for years, especially for my non-techy friends' computers. Because it doesn't max out system resources, stays up to date automatically, and has a full suite of protections that are on-by-default without any user intervention required, it's a great first line of defense for most computers. AVG Internet Security is a setup designed for stopping some of the worst threats: malware, viruses, hijacking/ransomware, and purchase fraud. My one issue with this particular software is that install requires two admin-level permission workarounds to enable full protections, which is a 5-minute problem for geeks with admin passwords but for non-techies, it's a show-stopper, even with good documentation. Overall, this is a one-time problem that shouldn't reoccur after setup. Setup is really fast, scanning is enabled by default, and setting up protections against ransomware is super easy. The user interface is highly visual and simple, showing you if something is wrong at a glance. It's very easy to both scan the computer or individual files with a few clicks. The always-on protections scan every new file and also help protect against phishing, fake websites, unsafe downloads, and dangerous email attachments. AVG shows time and time again that it is capable of good protection with minimal impact to system resources all wrapped in a friendly and easy-to-understand user-interface.I would recommend this to a friend
Q: QuestionDoes this Internet Security Protection software install a display toolbar whether it is wanted or not by the user? Does it install tracking spyware to collect customer internet use data for selling in the advertising arena?
Asked by User2020.
- A:Answer You have a choice to enable the browser extensions or not. I hope that answers your first question. If you use the AVG Secure Browser that is installed with the software, it does keep up with trackers and block them as you desire. Just set the settings the way you want them. You can uninstall the AVG Secure Browser in Programs & Features on your PC if you desire and just keep the Internet Security program. I am not sure if this tracks all of my internet usage. I think it probably has a setting to either allow it or not.
