AVG Anti-Virus Free Editon has an attractive, user-friendly interface, which supports touch in Windows 8. You certainly still have the same three types of scan: full system, selected files and folders and anti-rootkit. On the other hand, AVG Anti-Virus Free Editon enables users to set up scheduled scans. The 2013 app includes an enhanced and simplified firewall, with easy to use and understand settings. The firewall will as well provide support with link scanning, spam fighting and wi-fi hacking protection.
Want more? AVG Anti-Virus Free Editon is integrated with Windows Explorer so you will be able to scan files from their context menus. The anti-virus’s database is automatically updated on a daily basis. Although AVG Anti-Virus Free Editon is a very powerful program, others, such as Avast!, also do a good job, if not better.
