AVG continues to deliver essential free antivirus protection with the launch of AVG AntiVirus FREE 2016. It goes beyond simply detecting and removing viruses on your PC by blocking infected links as you browse, checking files before they’re downloaded, and helping protect your personal data online and on your PC with enhanced privacy features. With 2016, we’ve improved our core engine and its accuracy, and included a new cloud-based detection method. And because we know that security is just as important as usability, AntiVirus Free 2016 features a revamped, easier-to-use design.
Languages (25): English, French, German, Czech, Italian, Japanese, Polish, Portuguese (BR), Portuguese, Spanish, Turkish, Russian, Korean, Chinese…
We’ve been hard at work optimizing our core engine to increase its detection accuracy. That includes better detection of screen-locker ransomware and improved scanning of all downloadable files to keep you safe from an exponentially expanding pool of threats.
And when a new online threat breaks out and spreads, the key to keeping you protected is the speed with which we can react. Our new Outbreak Detection gives us the tools to act immediately and curtail their spread. With AntiVirus Free 2015, you don’t have to wait until the next virus-definition package is ready to be protected: the moment we know a threat’s there, you’re covered.
Finally, we believe security should be clean and simple to be effective, and we’ve put a lot of work in making sure AntiVirus Free 2015 is intuitive to use. Our new simplified design makes sure you know what needs your attention at a glance. Combined with our free comprehensive online support, you can be sure you’re getting our best protection.
The main parts of the program are the antivirus scanner and the resident shield, which monitors files opened, saved and copied from various sources, the quarantine module, used for storing infected data, plus an e-mail scanner (compatible with popular email clients, like Microsoft Outlook or Mozilla Thunderbird) that checks incoming messages for attachments with viruses and spam.
Moreover, AVG AntiVirus Free Edition provides the user with an additional anti-rootkit scanner, which makes it possible to remove dangerous rootkit components (undetected during the standard scan), which hide their presence in popular applications, drivers or DLL files and enable unauthorized access to the computer. What is more, the program also offers two more components, that should be especially useful for the Internet users – Identity Protection used for protecting the system from new and yet unidentified threats and LinkScanner, which protects the users from attacks during searching for something on the web and browsing web pages. The latter also uses Search-Shield function, which scans links generated by the most popular search engines (Google, Yahoo etc.), as well as Surf-Shield, that detects sites with exploits and other dangerous pages before the user visits them.
Helps stop, remove and prevent the spreading of viruses, worms, and trojans.
Protects you from malware on your PC and helps stop anything that’s infected.
Helps keep control of your PC in your hands, not some hacker’s.
Detects infected or rogue inbound attachments so they can’t damage your PC. Works as a plug-in for email applications including Microsoft Outlook® or as a scanner for POP3, SMTP and IMAP accounts.

AVG LinkScanner Surf-Shield
Smart prevention technology that stops you hitting infected or criminal sites. Actively checks every webpage just before you click and stops you if it detects anything suspicious.
Social Networking Protection
Checks the links that get exchanged when you’re on social networks such as Facebook®, Twitter® etc. to help keep you and your friends safe.
Real-Time Outbreak Detection
We’ve added crowd intelligence to our existing cloud-based Outbreak Detection technology to identify even the newest malware variants and outbreaks in real-time.
Uses advanced artificial intelligence on your PC to proactively identify malware samples that haven’t yet been catalogued by our AVG ThreatLabs team. AI Detection is being constantly trained through telemetry data from our users.
Normal deletion isn’t always enough to make your data disappear reliably. File Shredder deletes data securely using processes that prevent them being accessed or recovered by someone else.
Our antivirus is built for speed
Dramatically shortens scanning times thanks to a smarter scanning sequence that follows the order in which files are saved to the hard drive.
Keeps scans and updates at bay while you play to avoid lags and freezes. Also safeguards your digital profile from hackers looking to steal and sell your game rewards.
Only scans your PC when you’re not using it. Drops to low-priority mode as soon as you move your mouse or hit a key. To keep scan times to a minimum, it ignores the files it’s already scanned and knows are safe.
