Having recently purchased a new laptop, I received opinions from megastore and small independent retailer that AVG was no longer necessarily finding virus intruders. Has anyone experience of this, and if so what did you change to?
I have used the free versions of AVG for a number of years, but then about four/five years ago, decided to use the free versions of Avast with regular updates on all my computer's. Never had any problems, and would recommend this product to anyone.
If it does the job, and for free, and as a wide choice of recommendations, then why not use it?.
I've used MSE for years. However, interesting that when I tried to install it on my new W8 PC, was told that it's not compatible and that the Windows Defender (pre installed) is sufficient! So I put on Avast! free.
Following on from Jock1e's post regarding test results from the trusted and reputable German security firm AV-Test, here's their latest report for home anti-virus products. As you can see, AVG 2013 still scores very highly in the Protection tests so I still have confidence in that product.
