Review:

AVG Internet Security suite has emerged as one of the strongest Internet security suites backed by its high end virus detection technology and features. AV-Comparatives lauded AVG to have successfully detected 97.7% of threats.

The proactive-cloud technology combined with the PC acceleration technology helps AVG detect and remove the malware even before it is triggered. The Security suite itself is a bundle of multiple tools which altogether provide impenetrable security to the PC.

The tools include AVG Do Not Track, AVG Identity Protection, Anti-spyware and AVG Wi-Fi Guard. AVG security suite is hard shielded against phishing. It also highlights or removes the links that lead to malicious code cloaked as a genuine site.

Once done with the installation everything goes easy and smooth. The installer does not need a reboot and does not occupy the entire screen. The interface is very simple, the button, icons and the text all lay there in a legible flow. With every license you purchase, you are entitled for a free mobile protection for android based mobile phones.

Like many other suites the installation time is a little too long and requires you to uninstall any previous security suite. Older systems may find AVG to be a little heavier, because of their resource limitations.

The help and support is as good as any of its competitors with 24/7 phone and email support.

Overall, AVG Internet Security impressed to be good software with commendable tools and features. It makes it up to your money.
