The experts says that using an antivirus is essential if you want to keep your PC nice and safe. A proper security solution will protect against viruses, Trojans, spyware, and other malware that wants to sneak onto your PC and compromise it.

Czech security company AVG Technologies doesn’t have as many free offerings as say BitDefender or Kaspersky. Still, it has several free tools to offer, tools that will help you boost your PC’s performance and protect it against threats. Take a look below.


AVG Performance – Clean and boost your PC’s performance

AVG Performance will scan your PC and it will uncover errors and hidden junk files. Since errors slow down your PC and since hidden junk weigh it down, AVG Performance will fix and remove them. It’s worth noting that AVG Performance can remove lots of junk: broken shortcuts, browser cache, cookies, temp files, logs, old restore points, and more.

It’s also worth noting that AVG Performance does a lot to boost your PC’s performance: disable unnecessary startup applications, disable background programs that slow down your PC, defrag drives, let Live Optimization monitor your system and automatically manage programs and background processes.

AVG Performance is Zen-enabled. This means that the AVG Zen dashboard is built into AVG Performance. You can use this dashboard to manage all your AVG products and all your devices from a single location. “AVG Zen is the simple way to manage the protection, performance and privacy across your family's devices,” says AVG Technologies.

AVG Performance is available as a Free and as a Pro version.

The differences between the Free and the Pro version are highlighted below and on the official AVG Performance webpage.

AVG Performance is a blend of two AVG products, mainly AVG PC TuneUp and AVG Zen. I bring this up only to say that you can get AVG PC TuneUp for Windows right here on FindMySoft.

AVG AntiVirus – Essential virus and privacy protection

AVG AntiVirus provides essential security protection. It can protect your PC against viruses, spyware, and other malware. Furthermore, it will protect against malicious email attachments. It checks files before you open them, it checks your email before it gets to you, it checks links and websites before you visit them. It does all this to make sure you’re protected against viruses, malware, and other security threats.

AVG AntiVirus provides essential privacy protection as well. It protects your identity and keeps your personal information safe, it protects against spyware and adware that tracks personal info, it lets you identify which websites collect data on your online activities, and it shreds files so they can’t be brought back with a data recovery tool.

AVG AntiVirus is available as a Free and as a Paid edition.

AVG Antivirus Free for Windows is available for download right here on FindMySoft. The differences between these two editions are highlighted below and on the official AVG AntiVirus Free webpage.

AVG Protection – Essential antivirus protection for the whole family

AVG Protection is even better than AVG AntiVirus. It’s better because it comes with improved protection against viruses, spyware, malware, dangerous links, and harmful websites. It’s better because it’s available for more platforms: Windows, Mac, and Android. And last but not least, it’s better because it is Zen-enabled. From the Zen dashboard you can easily add your family’s devices, extend protection features, and remotely manage the protection of your PC and Android devices.

AVG Protection is available as a Free and as a paid Pro version.

The differences between the two are highlighted below and on the official AVG Protection Free webpage.
