Award-winning Virus Removal and Prevention
AVG's unique combination of scanning and detection methods has received numerous awards for its excellent detection of 'in the wild' viruses. It is a great tool for detecting and protecting against malware, trojans, viruses and worms.
AVG's virus database is automatically updated every day or as soon as there is a new threat. With AVG you get virus database updates for the lifetime of the product, thereby providing the high level of detection capability that millions of users around the world trust to protect their computers.
When you use FireFox or Internet Explorer with the LinkScanner tool, it will give you advance warning of suspicious and malicious sites that may come up in search engine results.
You can use your computer during scans without experiencing slow performance on your computer. AVG's scanning process is very fast and works by starting a scan when the computer is idle and switches to a low-priority mode once it detects some activity. Smart scanning technology not only reduces scan times, it ensures that they take place when your PC isn't busy with other tasks. In other words, you can get on and do what you need to without any delays or interruptions.
When you delete a file from your computer, it is still accessible by others. This solution offers a permanent deletion of files and reducing any potential digital trails for recovery. When you delete a file from you computer, by default it doesn't actually delete files, even after clearing the Recycle Bin. For the average user, this might not seem like much but in the era of privacy concerns, it's a welcome feature that will slowly start to become more relevant to the average consumer.
With this feature you can create a location on your hard drive that can only be unlocked with a password. It's a great solution for people with sensitive data and files who share their computers with others.
