AVG Antivirus is a top of the line antivirus suite developed to protect your PC against viruses, malware, spyware, Trojans, worms, and other threats. Using industry-leading technology, AVG Antivirus has become a leading provider of PC protection, with recognition and awards from AV-Test, Virus Bulletin 100, Softonic, PC Pro, Business Solutions Magazine, and SC Magazine, to name a few. With a superior detection rate, new threats are blocked using two different proactive technologies.
AVG Antivirus is capable of scanning Web, email, instant messaging, and download traffic in real time. As an added measure, its Resident Shield technology scans files, as it is being copied or saved, thus preventing infected files from being opened. Using cloud-assisted technology, emerging threats are being discovered in real time, allowing instant updates. AVG Antivirus uses smart scanning technology that skips safe files during scans and goes into high-priority mode only when the computer is idle.
For added security, AVG Antivirus features anti-spyware and anti-malware technologies, which ensure safer surfing, downloading and gaming online. For instant messaging, it provides Instant Messaging Encryption for Yahoo! and MSN Messenger. For laptop owners, it can be set-up to run in Laptop Mode to prolong battery life. AVG Antivirus also offers 24/7 technical support with a team of experts, as well as AVG Advisor, a proactive system-monitoring tool that informs the user of potential system issues and provides possible solutions.
