AVG AntiVirus is a security application used to protect computers. It guards against advanced malware, viruses, spyware, and other malicious threats.

AntiVirus offers a variety of tools to detect and stop viruses before they infect your computer. The software checks files before you open them, links before you click them, websites before you visit them, and email attachments before you download them. To help stay current on new threats, AVG uses a community protection network to use threats shared by members of their community to better protect all their members.

The software helps prevent spying and data theft, giving you tools that can control who can see and use your online activity against you. It alerts you when your computer tries to access an unknown WiFi network and permanently deletes sensitive information with File Shredder when you want it gone for good. The software also encrypts and stores your important documents and pictures onto a password protected virtual disk for an extra layer of security.

AntiVirus is mainly used to protect home computer users who will benefit from the security software's advanced tools. The software functions like a bodyguard as it stays a step a head of your activity whether it be surfing the web, opening emails, or interacting on social sites such as Facebook and Twitter. AVG AntiVirus is one of the better options available to protect your PC.
