AVG Anti-Virus 9

12 Mar/10

The guys over at giveaway of the day are offering the popular antivirus software AVG Anti-Virus 9 today. The security program offers several additional features over its free counterpart (named AVG Anti-Virus 9 Free or AVG 9 Free) which will be the focus of this review.

AVG 9 Free offers the core features that one would expect from an antivirus software. It protects the computer system from viruses and spyware, offers basic rootkit protection, an email scanner, phishing protection and integrated Linkscanner module for protecting the computer user during online sessions.

AVG Anti-Virus 9 comes with all of those features plus some. It offers advanced rootkit protection instead of the basic protection offered in AVG 9 Free, an online shield mode which protects the computer when downloading and sharing files online and a game mode that guarantees uninterrupted playtime.

And that’s it. Both AVG 9 applications do not offer a software firewall, identity protection and anti-spam protection, both of which are integrated into AVG Internet Security only.

Update Just found out that the version of AVG Anti-Virus 9 offered at the Giveaway of the Day website is only a 90-day trial version of the program, not a full version that works for a year. It is therefor probably not worth the troubles of downloading it.

Positive

  • Advanced Rootkit protection
  • Online shield
  • Game Mode
  • Compatible with 32-bit and 64-bit editions of Windows

Negative

  • Only a 90-day trial
  • No Firewall and anti-spam

AVG Anti-Virus 9 can be downloaded today only at the Giveaway of the Day website. Additional information about the antivirus software can be found at the AVG website.
