AVG were the first to bring out a free AV, and they have been much copied. No virus has ever got past AVG Free in my experience.
Small footprint, taking only 2 MB memory.
Easy to learn, with uncluttered interface.
Daily updates of the virus definitions.
Effective, free virus security.
Sometimes won't install properly on "dirty" systems.
Update notification is slightly too obtrusive.
Manual update won't find server during peak demand. This is occasional. Wait or hour or just leave it to undate automatically.
Trouble free operation has resulted in many of my clients being prescribed AVG Free, even PC averse elderly clients prefer it. Companies use it too, without problems.
It has proved worthy of my constant use, (I dropped Norton AV like a hot potato when it started failing before the millenium).
Use with Windows Defender (ant-spyware) for total peace of mind.
