Attacks other computer protection with zen 1 stars by normgray6980 Jul 02, 2017 (Read all my 2 reviews)
I've been using AVG Anti-Virus FREE for many years and, in the past is has been good, BUT since the beginning of 2017 it includes an add-in referred to as ZEN, pops-up nag screens repeditively, and now ZEN attacks Malwarebytes Premium by turning off & blocking its Exploit Protection, even though I have Malwarebytes listed as an exception in the main AVG set-up. Although I'd have given AVG Anti-Virus FREE 5 Stars in the past, now I wouldn't recommend it to my worst enemy. show Review details
Compatability with other programs 1 stars by BCIncInfo963 Mar 12, 2016
I am using the full paid version on two computers. This program is a night mare. The only way you can get other programs to work is to disable the fire wall, and you can't use another fire wall, because AVG disables them so they can't be used. This program is an albatross that needs somewhere to land. You can't get in contact with customer service or tech support because all of the numbers have been disconnected. The only one that works is some paid tech support in India. Their service is so poor, that they don't want to hear all the complaints. I would not recommend this program to anyone. show Review details
Totally disappointed overall 1 stars by usnavytank950 Jun 22, 2015
I am a DOD Cyber Defense Analyst and bought AVG to kind of test it out not only for myself at home but for work. I am totally disappointed overall. First off paid tech support that is nuts! you pay for a product and when it does not work you have to pay someone to fix it. Then after reinstalling the software 3 to 4 times because it kept telling me I did not have the paid version but I download for the site it says I am good. The interface is good but clunky and the one overall thing I liked was the privacy monitor which worked as advertised. Overall I would not recommend this to anyone because of the support and the clunkiness of it. Most of my users just want things to work without a lot of backend and AVG falls well short of this requirement. This is sad because AVG used to be a great product but now has gone the way of so many companies after a initial success. show Review details
