Summary

AVG is a leading company in Internet Security and they seem to be working hard to always be growing and protect from real time threats. The Installation was easy on un effected PC’s however while review a PC that contain infections AVG seem to create issues with the system running properly. The dashboard was extremely easy to use and allows full control of the system.

One downside we found was while AVG scanned the whole PC and did a great job it did slow down the PC and took awhile to complete the full scan. This would not be much of an issue if a scan was scheduled for after hours. AVG also provided good support of their Internet Suite and help increase the review score. Overall AVG is among the highly recommended and is a great Option for home and business PC’s.
