    AVG Homepage
    I've been looking for an alternative AV and I think I've heard that this is a good one (and free)

    Does anyone here have any experience with it? I'm just looking for some useful info, thanks =)

    I've been usin' Grisoft's AVG for a couple of years now and find it quite good (provided that ya keep it update and as always use common sense).

    my common sense has kept me from needing an AV for some time =)

    Can it be set to NOT run in the background? I'm primarily going to be using it to scan individual files.

    I've been using if for awhile now. It has prevented me from acquiring a few worms. My youngest frequents many sites and has stumbled across a few viruses.
    It has a blue screen alert warning on what is about to happen. He's only 10 and can understand it, no trouble using it at all.

    thanks for the input, AVG asks for a bit more personal info than I want to give out, but I guess that is the cost of being 'free'

    Personally it works better for me than the costly AV's (even when they're free with a mobo). :thumb:

    ya I've got several versions of norton AV, McAfee, and pcillin....never liked any of them much...

    how does AVG's footprint compare to these?

    I use the AntiVir Personal Edition and I think itīs quite easy to use. (can disable background operation) Works good! :thumb:
