For free antivirus, AVG Anti-Virus Free is equipped with a very rich set of features. In addition to the standard antivirus module, this product includes proactive protection, anti-malware links, email scanning and rootkit search. While you're on the network, LinkScanner will check web pages for links to malicious sites. Thus, the antivirus not only blocks dangerous pages, but also prevents navigation to them. The Identity Protection module, which is positioned as an anti-theft protection against identity theft, is a real-time protection (or proactive protection) that controls the activity of all running processes.
Protection against rootkits, as the most dangerous viruses, is a good addition to the features of AVG Anti-Virus Free. In fact, this antivirus differs from the solutions of the Internet Security class only in the absence of a firewall, everything else is here. A feature that is not directly related to protecting your computer from viruses is the PC Analyzer. It scans your computer for registry errors, outdated hard drive files, hard drive fragmentation, and old shortcuts. This feature, bundled with a banner under the interface of AVG Anti-Virus Free is nothing but an advertisement of other paid products of the company, and this is, in fact, the only negative program.
