AVG released its newest Internet security suite, AVG 2011, which includes enhanced Web- and social network-protection, high detection rates and a faster, nimble and more powerful design.
AVG’s real-time scanning solution, LinkScanner, allows users to surf, search, email, shop and use social networks online with the confidence that the pages they surf are not compromised and the places they choose to visit online are safe to enter personal and private information.
LinkScanner automatically checks and protects, in real-time, links exchanged within social networks such as Facebook and MySpace. Hassle free, with no configuration required – protection is automatically activated so you’re safe.
AVG 2011 now includes several enhancements that improve its ease of use. The installation process for the software has been reduced to five simple clicks, while the software’s uninstall process is as seamless as ever.
Noting that many users are heavy users of multi-media applications, AVG 2011 includes a “game mode,” which scans and protects users’ computers behind the scenes without interrupting full screen, multi-media applications with pop-up notifications. In addition, AVG 2011 features “Single click fix’ – a new function that allows users to automatically fix problems with their software via an easy to access “Fix It” button.
AVG 2011 also features Smart Scanning, a new functionality that learns which files are certified and safe and only scans new, uncertified files on a user’s computer. When AVG 2011 Smart Scanning does scan a user’s computer, it pays attention to the system resources in use and only scans those resources not in use at the time of the scan, allowing the computer to run faster during the virus scan process.
Pricing for a one-year, one-seat license for AVG Internet Security 2011 starts at $54.99. A one year one-seat license for AVG Anti-Virus 2011 starts at $34.00 and a two-year, one-seat license starts at $51.99.
