This is an easy-to-use virus protector that provides an outstanding service. AVG has kept both my laptop and my desktop computers free of any harmful viruses since the moment I installed it on each, and I could not be more satisfied with the results thus far. It's clean, user-friendly, and most importantly, effective.

Install the antivirus and you don't have to think more about it. A set and forget antivirus like AVG will keep you unoccupied using the computer the way you want. AVG has an attractive interface and easy to setup with auto updating signatures. It's also fast without eating your computers hardware resources. That's all you need to know.

It's a very good antivirus software if not the best among free editions. The software always worked well and found viruses when others failed.
