How good is this Virus Checker, out of the free checkers would you say it is one of the better ones.

AVG - Free Version

Lost faith in the free one after the updater stopped woking for a week, when updates where coming out 3 times daily during the mass influx of blaster varients. Using the full version now, with no complaints

As an AVG reseller I'm probably biased.

But as far as AV software goes its as good as it gets.

Problems experienced by european customers earlier in the year with updates have since been fixed.

Good bit of kit.

AVG is good as a free anti-virus checker, but it's poor compared to many of the others that are out there, and it's got a checkered past in the anti-virus awards.

I personally would NOD32 or Kaspersky 4.5 , much better.

I've been using the free version of AVG for around three years now and it's not let anything through, can't grumble at that. Smiley
Whatever you eventually decide on though, the important thing to remember is to check for updates - frequently!
I have lost count of the number of friends who have been hit by a new virus because they hadn't bothered to check for a day or two.

Used AVG For years but since the upgrade to 7, I've encountered problems, 'sites not loading , problems with 'Mailwasher' not working correctly................

After an uninstall .....all is well again............

Don't seem to be alone looking at their forum............seems too buggy for me at the moment..........using 'Antivir- Personal Edition'

Check Their forum

Hmm Version 7 has just this minute poped up with a message that the email scanner is not fully functional :? No reason given for this happening.
Not had chance to look into why yet or try a reboot.
Ill see what happens after that :shock:
