Summary. For several years running, AVG AntiVirus Free Edition has been the top downloaded antivirus program at the CNET website. This is because it is effective yet doesn’t slow computers down like other products.

Comparison. Security suite products can slow computers down. For example, Symantec Endpoint slows down computers and sometimes can only be removed by following a 139-step instruction guide for manual removal.

Purchase Notification. If you’re using the free version, and AVG has recently upgraded to an entirely new version of the program,  you may be notified that you can purchase the paid version of AVG AntiVirus. However, it’s not necessary to purchase the paid version. You can follow the helpful links below to find the free download again and upgrade to the latest version of the free program.
