A full-system scan, or manual use 25% – 45% CPU usage not very good comparing to our top rated product , but still is better than other AV software.

AVG takes care of almost all threats it finds during our scan test. there were a couple problem threats that needed additional work to clean; it asked permission before taking further action. Only once did it require a reboot to finish the cleanup. AVG detected 94 percent of the preexisting threats, not very high score comparing to our best endeavors BitDefeneder Antivirus Plus. .

The New AVG AntiVirus 2016 doubling the amount of signatures and antivirus definition updates so now Avg checked for automatically (every 4 hours) but you can change the time depends on your need


We’re glad to see that AVG has maintained their reputation for strong antivirus software again in 2016, We particularly liked the addition of cloud antivirus technology and the progressive web protection from LinkScanner. The downside points, really, to theirs AVG Antivirus is the scanning speed and there is no firewall , We recommend to use Avg over all It’s a great option for protection and peace of mind AVG AntiVirus 2016 price at price at $39.95 Upgrade from old version price $24.90
