If I had a dollar for everyone of my friend's computers I have taken this mess off of and installed Avast! in it's stead I could buy a new gaming computer. Has been junk for a long time, still junk.

Avoid this program! Constant popupmads to purchase additional features is extremely annoying. It is ironic that I bought this product only to have them bother me multiple times a day. Wish I had stayed with MacAffee.

I hate the IE Toolbar that AVG provides, even the updated version that comes with this newly released software.
AVG stupidly does not give the user any options to customize this irritating and poorly designed Toolbar.
I hate the Facebook icon that AVG insists to include on the Toolbar.
Open letter to AVG: Give us options to customize the Toolbar so we can remove any features that we do not want to include and see in our browsers.

This is the absolute worse anti-virus I have ever tried to install. It got about half way through then blue screened my lap top. I wasted my last 30 minutes on my phone trying to fix it and ended up having to do a system restore to 3 days ago. I will NEVER try and install anything that has something to so with them again. If it weren't for GuruAid, I may have never been able to fix my computer again. And, if it were an option, I wouldn't even give AVG a star. So, for the record, I give them 0.

I had the misfortune of fixing my neighbours PC yesterday that had crawled to a halt & had difficulty closing down or re-starting. The cause was a messed up AVG free installation after removing it & spending some time cleaning the PC up all was OK - Avoid what was once a decent AV but no longer.
Dear AVG, i had installed the avg free antivirus on 21 july 2011. runs smoothly. but 2nd august midnight (12.15am of 3rd august) suddenly i lost all the datas (word, excel, powerpoint, pdf and jpeg files) without my knowledge from my desktop (HP laptop). I tried to recover those files using various recovery file softwares. I got some of the word and excel files with same file names. I tried to open those files but it showing that the files was corrupted or the files showing some unreadble fonts. Is there any source to recover those files. In some of the recovered word files showing some words containing avg and id numbers are there. I am having a doubt that avg free antivirus hidden or corrupt those files? Please help me
Lots of problems with AVG Free 9.0698a1730! On four machines and all have started to run _very_ slowly and the main hard drives are constantly running? Reverted to Free 8.5 and all is well now!
