Well I use the personal edition of AVG. So I did a we test to see what kind of advertising there was. This was what I got:

'Outgoing mail is certified Virus Free.
Checked by AVG anti-virus system (http://www.grisoft.com).
Version: 6.0.363 / Virus Database: 201 - Release Date: 21/05/02'

hmmm, I don't really consider that to be an advertisement. In fact I wouldn't mind if most emails had something similar at the bottom.

Thanks Tweak'e. I went off the American PCMag years ago because I felt they weren't being objective or impartial. Have had AVG for a month or two and am quite happy with it.

Yeah guys,obviously the poster Allen Z is paid by Grisoft with a post that long
(Only joking)

I have been using AVG for just over 12 months now and have only had 1 hic-cup when it wouldn't load up-dates,but an uninstall/re-install fixed that!

Easy to use and quick to up-date etc.

It will run hand-in-hand with
NAV Corporate version with no coflicts although I now only run one at a time!
