AVG Internet Security 2024 is the companies second release since the company was acquired by AVAST.
What the security aims to achieve is blend the best technologies from each company. For example, the engine is AVAST, but the "Software Analyzer" heuristics come from AVG.
The new release gets real-time protection against zero-day malware via "CyberCapture, the company’s proprietary, cloud-based smart file scanner."
A new online shield blocks access to malicious links and websites.
You're now able to install and run AVG Internet Security alongside other security products. The program automatically installs using a new "Passive Mode" to avoid any conflicts or issues.
A new Secure DNS feature verifies a website's address using secure DNS servers to prevent redirections to fake sites.
The program still offers all the regular malware detection and blocking features of previous editions, and a revamped interface makes it easier to explore and use.
The new "Software Updater" tool will check for new updates to installed software and will either recommend you upgrade or will download and install automatically, in the background.
AVG Internet Security 2024 includes a flexible 10-Device licence supporting just about any device you own, including PC, Mac and Android devices.
Includes a 1-Year license covering TEN of your devices!
Review by Mike Williams.
Most system performance issues are often a result of other software clashing with your brand new software. For instance, security software can clash with a background process, such as a system maintenance tool or defragmentation software. Another cause of system slowdown, is a result of two software applications performing a similar task. As an example, Windows includes a firewall switched on as a default. Your new security suite is likely to include a firewall. You only need one firewall running. In this example, try turning off your system firewall.
Uninstalling Your New Software
Occasionally you may need to either temporarily or permanently remove your new software.
On a Windows computer, go to the Control Panel and choose Programs and Features. Locate the program within the list, then click it to highlight it. Finally, click the Uninstall button at the top of the list and follow the instructions to remove the program from your PC.
On an Apple Mac computer, using Finder, locate the Applications folder. Within the Applications folder, find the name of the application you wish to remove. Simply drag the icon to your Trash icon in your dock. Empty the Trash to remove the files from your computer.
Still Having Problems?
If you cannot solve your system performance issues or are struggling to remove your software, we advise contacting the software manufacturer. If you placed an order, see the section in the order which states Support options. Alternatively, go to the Contact Us page to contact store support directly.
