AVG is very famous for its free Antivirus software. Why would somebody want to pay for its anti-virus software? The answer is simple: you get what you pay for. The AVG anti-virus free version offers protection while surfing the internet or social networking. It compares potential threats against its database of known threats and keeps your computer safe from infections. It does NOT scan files as they are being downloaded to your computer, NOR does it offer firewall protection or scan your email for spam and suspicious links, which are all essential if you ever share files, shop or bank online.
This version of AVG anti-virus software is supplied in a 8GB USB memory stick instead of a CD, and you also have the option to download the very latest version from official AVG website. After you installed it on your computer, you need to register it with the supplied key & activate it. Since not all threats are known viruses, AVG antivirus software automatically updates its database on a regular basis which also features an opt-in function where users can share data on new infections as they occur. This zero-day availability allows the software to address new threats as they are introduced. It then adds those definitions to the database and updates all active subscriptions.
You can indeed use the 8GB USB Memory Stick for general data storage or file transfer too. The falsh drive features USB 2 speed, luxury diamond cut finish, and SP Widget software. SP Widget provides six major back up / security tools :
1. “My document” synchronization/ backup
2. Sync or backup other folders
3. Sync or backup “Outlook/ Outlook Express”
4. Copy and encryption your data into USB stick
5. Sync or backup “My Favorite”
6. Lock your computer by password, time or USB stick.
