  • AVG Antivirus Software is, on the whole, a fine, if not exceptional product.

    It has effective virus and malware detection and removal capabilities, and it tested cleanly and consistently in numerous categories including real time virus protection, virus removal and virus scanning.

    Although it missed one virulent threat in our own tests, it offered considerable security and protection overall.

  • AVG Anti-Virus
  • The tech support isn't exceptional, but AVG does outperform some of the most well-known software brands.

    With some great features like the File Shredder, Online Shield, and Data Safe, AVG Antivirus has some interesting features rarely found in other company's antivirus.

    Combine these features with its well-regarded antivirus features, and all-in-all, it's a formidable product.

    That said, the AVG Internet Security 2017 program goes a couple of steps further, protection-wise.

  • For those who trust and appreciate AVG Antivirus products (AVG has made solid free antivirus protection for years), AVG Internet Security securely fills the gaps left behind by previous product incarnations.

    One of the best additional features is the Backup & Recovery option.

    If you need a large amount of secure storage, the secure file saving feature will get your attention.

    With it you can save photographs and other media to secure AVG servers, which can be accessed remotely from any computer.

  • The email scanning feature is also handy for additional malware and virus protection. There is also web browser protection as well as instant message scanning.

    While it's possible to find solutions to most issues that can arise with AVG installation, there are fees if more complex things like help with threat removal are needed—even when the threat managed to bypass AVG protection software.

    On the whole, AVG Internet Security offers a significant step up in protection over the basic AVG Antivirus.
