AVG LinkScanner’s® real-time protection
AVG Search-Shield places safety ratings next to each link in your search results, letting you know which sites can be trusted, while AVG Surf-Shield checks web pages in real time, identifying malicious websites before you visit them.
AVG Search-Shield works with Google, Yahoo!, Bing and other selected search providers by placing a safety rating next to each link, letting you know which sites can be trusted and which are to be avoided. If it detects something suspicious, it prevents you from visiting the site. AVG Surf-Shield actively checks web pages in real-time every time you click a link or enter a web address directly into your browser.
Keep tough threats out
AVG Anti-Virus, AVG Protective Cloud Technology, AVG Anti-Spyware and AVG Community Protection Network
AVG’s core layers of protection make sure you can’t receive or unintentionally spread even the toughest threats.
AVG Protective Cloud Technology, new for 2011, constantly carries out tests ‘in the cloud’ over the internet to identify the latest emerging threats. Once we have identified threats we develop solutions and then update AVG on your computer in near real-time.
AVG Community Protection Network is new for 2011 and is like an online neighborhood watch, helping everyone in the online community to protect each other. Information about the latest threats is collected from customers who choose to participate in the product improvement program and shared with the community to make sure everyone receives the best possible protection.
AVG Anti-Spyware protects you from spyware and adware – the same kind of malware that is often very difficult to remove, which is why we prevent it from getting to you in the first place.

Play games and watch movies without interruption
AVG Game Mode
Hassle-free protection that works in the background while you play games and watch movies.
Non-stop action and non-stop protection. There is no need to run scheduled updates and scans as game and movie mode works in the background, making sure you don’t get interrupted with frustrating messages while you are having fun. It is fast, quiet, and efficient and constantly on the lookout for potential threats.
Scan smarter and faster
AVG Smart Scanning works while you play
AVG 2011’s scans are even faster. AVG Smart Scanning works while you’re away and runs in low-priority mode when you return.
AVG Smart Scanning makes sure you can work and play without being interrupted. It starts scanning in high-priority mode whenever you leave your PC and switches to low-priority mode, using minimal resources, every time you move your mouse or push a key on your keyboard. Scans are now much faster as well because AVG Smart Scanning doesn’t waste time scanning the trusted files it knows are safe.
