some spfd tech people indicated AVG free virus control is not near as good as the paid for product and should not even be considered.
Any ideas and any site to research their compared performance?
thanks, jim s.

Hi Jim,

The free versions of any software are less effective than the pay version of the same product, since they want to sell you an upgraded version, but many of us have used AVG and/or Avast for years without any problems at all.

We always recommend that folks use an antivirus application, antimalware/antispyware application, and a firewall, but you don't have to get them all from the same vendor.

To find out more about AVG free, visit http://www3.grisoft.com/doc/welcome/us/crp/0
About halfway down your screen, at the extreme left side, click "Products". When the new page opens, scroll to the very bottom of the page. The last section is all about Grisoft's free software, and you can take a look at the features you get and don't get for free.

Hope this helps,
