How does AVG 9.0 Stand Up? Its Junk!
Posted 10 November 2009 - 06:29 AM
i forwarded it to my Yahoo and gmail account...
Yahoo caught it, and Gmail just rejected the e-mail sending it right back.
Im feeling a little testy tonight, so I download it from my e-mail to see what bells and whistles go off and this is what happens...
Microsoft Security Essentials went off immediately...
AVG said nothing...
So i figured I'd give AVG the benefit of the doubt and manually scan it
And the results....
I think this pretty much sums up AVG9 as a good antivirus scanner. AVG, if you get any better, please contact me, I'll be more than happy to retry. As of now, your UNINSTALLED!

Stop Paying for Windows Security; Microsoft's Security Tools Are Good Enough
When it comes to keeping your Windows PC secure, all of the scare tactics and overblown virus stories out there make it hard to feel safe online. The fact of the matter is that you don't need to pay for Windows security.
From time to time we like to go on long, opinionated rants about subjects that bug us. This is one of those times. So let's have a frank and honest discussion about Windows security, and leave the scare tactics and FUD for money-grubbing corporate marketers.
Microsoft Security Essentials is a Great Antivirus Application

I will move definitely to Avast!, I've seen many people saying that v4.8 is very good.

...but is it worth it to move to MSE if you're using Avast?

Right now, I'm using AVG 9.0, and I'm happy with it - sure, internet security software should be accurate and have an effective real-time scanning capability, but once in a while things will be ignored, and in some cases false positives may be detected. Alas, it's a fact of the industry which is quite irritating.
Anyway, IMHO the best experience I've had (after trying out Trend Micro, F-Secure, NOD32, Symantec, McAfee, AVG, Avira, Panda and Microsoft products over the years) has to be with Kaspersky. Either way, I'm going to keep an eye on MSE as it seems to be a good candidate for future use
