AVG Internet Security 9

The new AVG Internet Security has been released, with promises from AVG of much faster scan times and far less processor usage. Upon first look nothing much has changed, but why change a reliable and easy to navigate interface just because a new version is being released? The real changes are in the performance and isnít that what matters most?

The interface is remarkably easy to navigate, showing you which security measures are active and what security measures they use. For those that donít understand much techno babble, AVG keeps it fairly simple, offering a small explanation of what each measure does once clicked on. The usual suspects are all here, such as a Firewall, Web Shield, and an Email Scanner. In addition to this AVG includes its Link Scanner, which makes sure all web pages are safe when you click on the link to go to them. Also included is Identity Protection, which independently monitors all activities that could lead to possible forms of online identity theft. Both these measures come in handy to ensure your computer has total protection.

AVG Internet Security runs fairly smoothly as well. It doesnít take up much memory usage and allows the computer to run at normal speeds without clogging everything up. It doesnít take long to get started, and then silently goes about its work. It is hardly noticeable until a potential danger shows up. Scanning is also fairly quick, although not the quickest in the game. A whole computer scan take between twenty minutes and half an hour, and it schedules a scan weekly. These scans run in the background and there is no resulting slowdown upon the scans activation.

Overall AVG Internet Security is a decent program that gets the job done. It offers all the regular features a security program should offer, with decent price, and a decent performance. It may not be as robust as others, but for users that just need a simple Internet security program, they could do worse than AVG
