AVG 2012 - REVIEWS

 

ComputerActive UK:

"One of the best free antivirus tools now gets even more protection with the inclusion of the 'identity protection' module”

- Tim Smith, http://www.computeractive.co.uk/ca/download-review/1932531/avg-anti-virus-free-2011

 

PC Advisor UK:

“The scanning engine in both AVG Internet Security 2012 and AVG Free is robust, effective and has a comparatively light footprint. AVG Internet Security 2012 includes worthwhile extensions into spam and identity protection which are worth paying for.”

- Nick Mediati and Simon Williams, http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/reviews/security/3327046/avg-internet-security-2012-review/

 

TechRadar:

“AVG Internet Security 2012... offers far more features that you'd expect from its rivals.” “Another new feature is the Wi-Fi Guard, which protects you from unknown and unprotected wireless access points. As more and more of us are happy enough to join networks in bars, cafes, hotels and more, this is a welcome layer of protection.”

- Matt Hanson, http://www.techradar.com/reviews/pc-mac/software/utilities/anti-malware-software/avg-internet-security-2012-1075199/review

 

CRN:

“Security vendor AVG Technologies is providing customers with the option of keeping their browsing private from prying Web sites and advertising networks.” “AVG is among the first anti-virus vendors to tackle the problem” and “AVG's software goes beyond most Web browsers. For example, users of Mozilla Firefox and Microsoft Internet Explorer can have the browsers tell advertisers not to track, but whether they don't is voluntary.”

- Antone Gonsalves, http://www.crn.com/news/security/232700448/avg-provides-do-not-track-option-for-online-privacy.htm

 

PC Advisor UK:

“Not only does AVG Internet Security 2012 protect users and their PC from threats, thanks to AVG's accelerator technology the software will also speed up video download from YouTube and binary downloads from Downloads.com by as much as 50 percent.”

- Carrie-Ann Skinner, http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/news/software/3300382/avg-launches-internet-security-2012/

 

The Register:

“AVG is adding active “Do Not Track” technology to its security suites in a move designed to give consumers more control over their online privacy.” “This move will make AVG the first antivirus vendor to provide active Do Not Track.”

- John Leyden, http://www.theregister.co.uk/2012/03/27/avg_do_not_track/

 

AVG 2012 - USER TESTIMONIALS

AVG INTERNET SECURITY 2012

“I have been using AVG for over 10 years now. Right from the "AVG Free" edition to my current choice AVG Internet Security 2012. I also use AVG PC Tuneup for even better performance and peace of mind. Browsing is never a worry with the AVG tool bar too. So if you are unhappy with your current anti-virus software, or maybe need some direction about what to use for your PC, laptop, or even your smart-phone, AVG has all of your internet security needs in one easy to find place. Just Google AVG and you'll find exactly what you need. Cheers!”

- Kevin Brooks, Ontario, Canada

 

PREMIUM SECURITY 2012

“AVG Premium Security is really nice to have, since Tuneup is included! It saves me the trouble and financial recourses, to buy two separate programs - Internet Security and AVG PC Tuneup. The suite has a more powerful identity protection module too, and this is reassuring for online shopping and online banking. In short, AVG Premium is a very powerful, very extensive suite , for people who want 360 degree protection and PC optimization in one. Well worth the money :)”

- Barry Eyt, Doetinchem, The Netherlands

 

AVG PC TUNEUP 2012

“The virus scan was great. Even greater was the cleanup of 2,000 errors. No wonder my computer was running slowly. Found out how inadequate my previous anti-viral program was working. Thank you AVG.”

- Caroline Wright, Tasmania, Australia

 

AVG ANTI-VIRUS FREE 2012

“I love my AVG! There have been so many times that my AVG actually stopped a download in progress when it detected a virus. My friend, who does not have AVG, got the virus and it crashed their computer! I would never have a computer without AVG!”

- Lynda Riggs, Aransas Pass, Texas, USA
