its resident shield will inform you of the viruses
that feed on your computer. In addition to that,
when using IM services, the software scans every
message coming from the other end. In the antivirus
section, the software incorporated a link that
can be acquired from the report card from AVG
regarding your protection.
Its LinkScanner feature scans
every link that you want to click when you search
on Google and check updates from social media
sites. The software can inform you if the webpage
comes with viruses or not without having to
click it. AVG is also capable of saving you
from spam and also works in filtering every
message in addition to checking the attachment
if it comes with different types of threat.
Some computer users settle
for windows firewall and are already confident
of the protection it provides. What they do
not know is they only receive basic protection
through this. As what you have already known,

protections your computer against viruses while
you get connected on the internet. AVG firewall
is more advanced and can check every single
packet that your computer sends and receives.
It can also block infected packets automatically.
The identity protection feature plays a very
valuable role and can protect your personal
information that is stored on your computer.
It also provides shields and protection against
Trojan horses and spyware.

detecting malware from your computer and with

speed of your computer while it removes errors.
