Over the years I have tried and tested all the major virus products for my own use and my customers, and without doubt the multi award winning AVG Internet Security is the best product around, providing unrivaled protection without clogging up or slowing down your computer like other resource hungry products such as Norton and McAfee

AVG Internet Security provides complete protection against viruses, spyware, spam, hackers and identity theft and also includes free technical support, automatic updates and free version upgrades throughout your subscription

 

A guide to installing and using AVG Internet Security can be found here

 

AVG Antivirus Free is also available but this version only includes basic anti-virus and anti-spyware protection and is NOT suitable if you shop or bank online - see a more detailed comparison below

 

Also below is a comparison of some key points between AVG and the built in security provided with Windows 10 / 11 (Windows Security / Microsoft Defender Antivirus)

SUMMARY

AVG provides so many more additional areas of protection that you do not get with the built-in Windows security e.g.

Sensitive Data Shield

Webcam Shield

Wi-Fi Guard

Fake Website Shield

The security provided by Microsoft (in Windows 11 especially) is definitely the best they have ever provided but it is still not as good as having a dedicated security program such as AVG installed as it still lacks so many additional areas of protection
