The pros and cons of upgrading from AVG Free Antivirus.
AVG is one of the major players in the antivirus software industry. One of the main reasons for this is that they offer both free and paid software. Many users start with AVG Antivirus Free to get an idea of what the software offers, and whether or not it is right for their PC. Soon enough, a large number of these users begin to wonder if upgrading to the paid version, for $27.99, is worth the money.
In terms of basic features, the free and paid versions are quite similar. That being said, if you want more features, some of which can improve your online experience, you need to upgrade to AVG Antivirus.
For many, the biggest benefit of upgrading to the paid software is AVG Social Networking Protection. With this, the program automatically checks social networking links, such as those from Facebook, to ensure the safety of both you and your friends. Even better, this feature is automatically installed – you do not have to change any account settings.
The paid version also offers “game and movie mode.” With this, you are never interrupted by the software when you are playing a game or watching a movie. This may sound like a small benefit on the surface, but if you are a true gamer or movie connoisseur you know just how important this can be. Of course, just because you are not interrupted doesn’t mean the software is not working.
While both versions of antivirus software from AVG are useful, the paid version comes with more features for today’s PC user.
