I have been running on 4 computers I built and two purchased with no problem. I only recommend that you have a good dual core or better to run it. AVG is full of junk and does NOTHING to keep the computer safe. That was my first free anti virus and had a problem 2 weeks after download. Had to wipe the hd and start from scratch!


I don't recommend running more the one antivirus active or not. They can cause system problems like slowdowns, conflicts ect. Please don't recommend running more then one as many av's can detect similar files which would result in a crash.

If you want to know what works and what doesn't then you need to check out AV_TEST.ORG. They evaluate all the products and post their results.

Test results are unreliable.

1. They drop infections in a folder and call it a test.
2. Infections are collected ahead of time and could be non existent in the database at time of test.
3. Settings are often changed for no good reason.
4. Software is often tested in an incorrect category example mbam with av software.

You can't rely on these tests.

Hi there new to the site but already some good info extracted. Ive got free version of AVG but became infected with the dreaded MS Removal Tool virus which I stupidly paid somebody to get rid of. Any way I have downloaded MS security essential and now thinking of the others mentioned above but am i right in thinking that I shud only have one anti virus programe rather than several ?
