My Thoughts on AVG Anti-Virus Free 2014

I really like AVG AntiVirus Free 2014. It was easy to install and has all the features you'd expect from any antivirus program you'd pay for. It's completely free and can easily replace any antivirus program you have on your computer right now.

Note: Choose the Custom Install option if you'd like to prevent AVG AntiVirus Free from installing a toolbar and making browser changes during its installation. You may also want to choose not to install the AVG Gadget when on the Component Selection screen.

Just click the Visit Their Website link below to download AVG AntiVirus Free 2014. Be careful not to download one of AVG's other programs that only have 30-day free trials.
