    I am using AVG INTERNET SECURITY 9.0 for over a month now. But I never bought it. What I did buy was an older AVG security suite (v7.5), 2 years ago. Nevertheless, whenever a later version becomes available, the suite updates itself to the latest version — FREE! It happened at least three times over these past years, with versions 8.0, 8.5 and recently 9.

    You have to respect a company that does this! With AVG a 2 year license means you shall have the latest security suite for 2 years (and not just new database definitions). Can you imagine buying McAfee or Norton 2009 in October and in March been offered their later release, free?

    As a security suite, AVG is light and reliable. It does not tax my system resources either idle or actively scanning, and one can trade speed for resources with a scalable slider. The interface is user friendly and intuitive. The default settings will protect the initiate user from confusing alerts and warnings. On the other hand, the experienced user can dive in and configure the suite to suit him best.

    The only thing I did not like with v9.0 are the icons in the main interface, which I found bland and boring. But appearances are a very minor thing when it comes to security suites.

    I have used in the past over many years Norton, BullGuard, McAfee etc but AVG Internet Security, especially v9,is in a different league. It is easy to load, virtually automatic for setup, easy to use and does what it says on the tin. I use on three domestic computers including a laptop. Usefully, apart from on start-up, and scan, it does not appear to take any processing power and incoming emails are only delayed marginally whilst it checks them for viruses.

    Upgrades are free and the on line support is good.

    The “anti popup” software to block adware is much better than on previous versions although I also use Pareto Logic Anti Spyware which also removes adware and sits seamlessly with AVG 9.

    Amazon are also selling at the moment for half the price you would pay on the AVG website!

    PS: I use Windows XP Pro.

  3. The product did exactly what it said on the box at an unbeliveable price compared to a download from AVG’s own web site. Software works a treat. Bargain. Need i say more.

    Hi I bought this product from Amazon at an unbeatable price.. I have found AVG by far the best internet security suite that I have used. I have tried a few but they slow down my pc.. As I say AVG works best for me !! I would also like to add that Amazon are second to none on customer service and delivery.

  5. This is so simple. I’ve been using Mcafee until recently and so far, this surpasses it by a mile. Easy to install, easy to use and easy to upgrade. I’ve not had to use the online support yet, but I imagine it will be as slick as the rest of the product. No glitches with XP and no interference with anything installed. It says its compatible with windows 7… we’ll see in a few weeks when the new computer arrives! Highly recommended. Oh and well done Amazon, excellent price and usual efficiency in delivering the product to my door.
