Basically, I want to know what differences there are between the Free and Paid Editions of AVG. Is it worth buying the paid edition if I already have the free edition?
here is some free information for all you AVG free lovers.
AVG Free contains basic antivirus protection (base level only).
AVG Free does not contain Anti-Rootkit protection so rootkits may be hidden in your system.
AVG Free does not contain Anti-Spam which can monitor and block SPAM and fraudulent e-mails.
AVG Free does not contain the new Safe Downloads & Instant Messaging protection (Web Shield technology)
so it does not screen your downloads and communication for viruses and spyware.
AVG Free only includes the Safe Search protection which provides you with advice on search results.
It does not protect against infected pages. Only AVG paid versions contain the Safe Surf technology.
