AVG Internet Security 9.0 Software Review

AVG Internet Security Software version 9.0 scans your computer for viruses and spyware, detects threats and blocks dangerous websites. The download process is extremely easy and it runs quietly in the background unless a threat is found and you will see a warning. Compatible with Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP and Windows 2000, AVG is used by 110 million people.

Scheduling

You can schedule your scans to take place the same time every day. If that scan is missed, it will begin when you start your computer.

Features
These are the features of AVG Internet Security 9.0:
  • Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware (prevents viruses, worms and trojan horses)
  • LinkScanner® – checks for safe websites
  • Online Shield – allows you to download virus-free files
  • Advanced Anti-RootKit Protection – keeps the latest and most sophisticated threats away
  • Game Mode – keeps you safe while playing games
  • AVG Identity Protection – keeps you safe from attempts to gain access to your sensitive information
  • Enhanced Firewall – protects your network from hackers
  • Update Manager – maintains updates to your AVG software
  • Email Scanner – scans incoming and outgoing emails
When you search on Google, you’ll see a green star with a check mark next to the websites that AVG has deemed to be safe. If there isn’t a designation from AVG, it doesn’t mean that there’s a problem with the site, but that it hasn’t been tested by AVG. I feel better going with the AVG approved sites though. Just one less thing to worry about.
The Benefits of AVG Internet Security 9.0
Once you set up AVG, you’re good to go. It updates automatically, warns you of threats and scans on schedule. AVG does not take away from the speed of your computer while scanning. It can save you a great deal of money by keeping your computer safe. Sometimes viruses can be so bad that you may need to replace your computer. Right now AVG Internet Security 9.0 is on sale for $43.99 from $54.99 for a year subscription. A 2 year subscription is 40% off. There is a free trial download available also.
I was given a one year subscription to AVG by Parent Reviewers to facilitate my review. All opinions are 100% my own.
