I think I'll have to jump on the Pro-AVG bandwagon here. I do run AVG at home, and have noticed that there updates are relatively as quick as other companies. The problem is with users not updating their database. Also, it is possible for a virus to sneak past even the best of companies (not likely but possible) so all users should be aware of what they are doing. The User is the last line of defense against virii.Originally posted by Max19
I wouldn't recommend using AVG. See this thread for details.
I have a lot of experience working with anti-virus software (beyond my own machine). I work for a very large corporation and have worked directly with several anti-virus vendors. I don't believe the money saved is worth the risk, but each individual has to determine the worth of his/her data on the computer.
