AVG Free Edition is one of the freeware antivirus software that should be taken into consideration when thinking about a freeware solution to protect one’s PC. It only provides basic protection, but this should be enough for those who are not avid computer users who download tons of files from the Internet.

AVG AntiVirus Free not only gives you the top-quality antivirus protection and security features that you’d usually expect only from a paid product, but added privacy features for 2014 help keep your personal information safe both online and on your PC, and the new integrated File Shredder permanently deletes sensitive files to keep them from falling into the wrong hands. Add to this our Anti-Spyware Technology and WiFi Guard, and you can be sure that wherever you are, at home or on the move, we’re taking your privacy seriously.
And it’s not just your PC and privacy that we help protect. Performance remains a significant factor, too. We firmly believe that antivirus software should never get in your way, so our smart scanning technology not only reduces scan times, it ensures that they take place when your PC isn’t busy with other tasks. In other words, you can get on and do what you need to without any delays or interruptions.
Improvements to the interface now also give you direct access to our great range of free apps, so we can help protect your mobile and tablet, too. Combine all this with comprehensive free online technical support, and you can be sure you’re getting the best possible free protection, privacy, and performance–that’s now even easier to use.
What’s new in this version:
A) Added privacy: We’ve put a big emphasis on privacy for this release. Our 2014 version not only helps keep your personal information safe when you’re online and on your PC, but we have further improved privacy protection with the new integrated File Shredder
