I am a DOD Cyber Defense Analyst and bought AVG to kind of test it out not only for myself at home but for work. I am totally disappointed overall. First off paid tech support that is nuts! you pay for a product and when it does not work you have to pay someone to fix it. Then after reinstalling the software 3 to 4 times because it kept telling me I did not have the paid version but I download for the site it says I am good. The interface is good but clunky and the one overall thing I liked was the privacy monitor which worked as advertised. Overall I would not recommend this to anyone because of the support and the clunkiness of it. Most of my users just want things to work without a lot of backend and AVG falls well short of this requirement. This is sad because AVG used to be a great product but now has gone the way of so many companies after a initial success.
Went downhill, downhill.....downhill.
Used to be great, it's updated to death as is Spybot and Ad-Aware...huh? I still use Spybot S&D 1.6.2
A long time ago wrote a rave review about AVG Antivirus, but times change, and almost always for the worse; AVG has gone the same way as Avira Antivirus, and not a shadow of it's formerly once extremely impressive self: both of them ate now total wastes of space on your computer, doing absolutely nothing of any use. Ditched AVG long ago, it's definition updates kept on failing, it never found anything during full-scans even though MalwareBytes Anti-Malware and SuperAntiSpyware frequently did (these are admittedly anti-malwareadware progs, and not specifically antivirus), but AVG should have found at least something. Another frustrating thing about AVG was trying to get rid of it, even Revo Uninstaller could not eradicate it, AVG stubbornly refused to vanish and also kept on bombarding me with unwantedpromotional emails. Bye Bye AVG, am never going to install you again. Rating: 05!!!
