AVG Internet Safety is a complete program that guards your Windows computer against cyber-attacks and malware. It is a light, yet powerful program that comes with many of the features you would find in an advanced antivirus program. It does include some unique features, for instance, the ability to repair files that have been infected and a ‘virus vault’ that keeps suspicious files until you can verify their security.
The interface is very clear and simple to use. The main dashboard shows scan progress, current subscription status and a list of services that are either enabled or disabled. It also tells when the last scan was run and is a nice feature for those who want to ensure their systems are up-to-date. The hamburger menu at the top of the screen has additional options for setting which include altering scanning protocols.
AVG is a well-known brand in the industry and its security products are some of the best available. The security program doesn’t put too much stress on the performance of the PC, which is crucial because the security software that creates lags will be swiftly removed and will not be used.
AVG Ultimate includes all of the company’s essential systems and does an excellent job of protecting your devices from peeping devices and ransomware. However, if you are not keen on paying for the entire package, AVG offers an even more affordable version that does not include the phone or adware features, but does include all the essential systems of the company.
