AVG Internet Security 2012 Review

AVG Internet Security 2012, 4 PC, 2 Year License

AVG Internet Security 2012, 4 PC, 2 Year License (PC) is the latest anti-virus software from AVG and is specifically designed to protect your computer on or offline. Once installed, you can look forward to using your PC or laptop in relative safety, as the new version of AVG protects everything from on-line usage to movies, photos and other personal information stored on your hard drive.

It also scans external media such as USB drives, external hard drives and DVD/CD ROMs for threats to ensure that your machine is completely protected from threats, wherever they may come from.

The very latest in internet security from AVG is much more than just an anti-virus package. More and more people are banking online and AVG's built in firewall is designed to block any threats from those looking to steal your private data. This is especially important these days as threats (especially with regard to online banking) are becoming more sophisticated and harder to spot.

Its identity protection software will also protect any information you enter on line with a two way firewall. When a threat is detected, your information is automatically protected from inbound attacks using real-time scanning.

With the rise of social networking, the threat to your PC is increasing all the time; problems that can occur from friends sharing links or information that poses a potential threat is stopped so that others can't unwittingly affect you.

The new upgraded version of AVG also searches for potential threats and works to inhibit them before any harm is done. The security experts at AVG are continuously updating their databases all the time so that as new threats emerge, you are protected immediately. Automatic pattern updates make sure that you don’t have to worry about getting the latest updates to protect your machine, as AVG do it all for you.

Another great selling point is that the built in AVG accelerator actually speeds up the downloading of files. It supports HD and Flash so that you can watch online videos such as You Tube with download times slashed. Enjoy videos with less buffering and glitches than before.

One of the most appealing aspects of the new AVG Internet Security 2012 is that despite lots of added extras, the new suite has less impact on boot times and utilises up to 20% less than RAM than its predecessor. Whilst AVG has always been regarded within the industry as one of the less intrusive security products, this version is lighter than ever and won’t interfere with your work as it runs unobtrusively in the background.

With the constant threat of new malware, the anti-virus protection will automatically update to ensure you have the best level of protection.

When sharing files the Resident Shield gives further protection to your pc by analysing files and checking for any that are potentially dangerous.

With the Advanced Proactive Identity Protection AVG will constantly be searching the internet for any potential misuse of your identity or personal details.

Personal messaging is also safer as AVG is constantly on the lookout for spam and unwanted e-mails.

Operating systems that support AVG Internet Security 2012, 4 PC, 2 Year License (PC) include Ubuntu, Android and Google.

A simplified Internet Security 2012 console now also incorporates links to add-ons, including parental controls, online backup, and PC Analyser.
