AVG Anti-Virus Free has a huge number of functions, which include:
- antivirus module;
- email scanning;
- proactive protection;
- rootkit search module;
- blocking malicious links.
What the anti-virus package can do
Protects your computer from Trojans, various viruses, spyware and adware. The built-in scanner checks for links leading to pages on malicious sites and blocks jumps to them.
The application has a built-in Identity Protection module that protects against theft of personal user data. Proactive protection protects in real time and controls all processes and programs that run. The only difference is the absence of a firewall. But, as a compensation for this, the application has a PC Analyzer scanner that looks for registry errors, outdated files on your hard drive, outdated shortcuts, hard drive fragmentation. The application is able to show an assessment of the security level of websites. The work of the antivirus does not require a large amount of system resources.
AVG Anti-Virus Free system requirements:
- 550 MB of free space on your hard drive;
- Intel Pentium 1.8 GHz or higher processor;
