Is Windows 10 compatible
with my antivirus software?


Windows 10 is not immune to malware, so it's best to make sure you're running some form of antivirus software. AVG is compatible with Windows 10 and will give you an added layer of protection when using your computer.

Antivirus for Windows 10

AVG AntiVirus and AVG Internet Security are both compatible with Windows 10. In fact, most of our software is compatible with Windows 10.


Whether you’re using our free antivirus, our AVG PC TuneUp optimizer, or our Zen-enabled products like AVG Internet Security, AVG TuneUp or AVG Ultimate, you can be confident that they will work with the latest operating system from Microsoft.


I'm still using Windows 7. Can I upgrade?


In fact, upgrading your system to Windows 10 is something we strongly recommend. Not only do major upgrades to operating systems come with significant security and performance improvements, but upgrading to Windows 10 is free—for a limited time.

If you haven’t done it yet, you should take up Microsoft on their offer. Just look in your system tray for the update.

More than that, you have nothing to fear when it comes to your AVG products, whether you’re running AVG AntiVirus on Windows 7 or on Windows 8. When you upgrade, your virus protection will simply carry over with the rest of your files.


Just make sure you are running the latest version of AVG by visiting the upgrade center, which you can find in the settings of your AVG software.


What if my AVG programs have issues?

Never say never when it comes to technology. While we’ve thoroughly tested all our programs to make sure they move over to your new system when you update, every computer is different and there is always a small chance that a reaction between rare programs could cause a conflict.
