AVG Free AntiVirus is one of the best free antivirus apps for Windows 10 thanks to our advanced AI-powered antivirus engine and global threat-detection network — the largest in the world. Whenever any device protected with AVG detects a new threat, we’ll automatically send out a cure to every single member of our worldwide AVG community.
By combining our award-winning technology with our decades of industry experience, we create the best free virus and malware scanning and removal software, effective spyware removal solutions, and other powerful security tools to protect your PC. And with the built-in Wi-Fi Inspector, you’ll get real-time security against intruders over your entire network.
From viruses and ransomware to phishing and pharming, there’s a wide range of cyberthreats that can attack Windows 10 computers. And while Microsoft’s built-in security offers strong protection against standard types of malware, most experts generally agree that Windows Defender isn’t enough on its own to protect you against the full spectrum of online threats.
Windows Defender guards against phishing attacks if you use Microsoft Edge, but it won’t cover you on other browsers. And it also won’t scan your Wi-Fi network to detect any security risks or intrusions. Lastly, in independent security reviews, Windows Defender doesn’t always perform as well as leading third-party antivirus tools — like AVG AntiVirus FREE. That’s why you should always support Windows Defender with a robust antivirus tool from a provider you trust.
AVG AntiVirus Free is a lightweight antivirus tool that’s been specially designed to protect your PC without slowing it down. You’ll get industry-leading protection against malware, Wi-Fi threats, phishing attacks, and more, with no impact on speed or performance.
If you’ve noticed your PC has slowed down, you can test the performance of your computer and explore other ways to speed up your PC.
AVG AntiVirus FREE will give your PC comprehensive protection against malware and many other threats, but there’s plenty more you can do to keep your computer healthy and fast. Use AVG TuneUp to clean your registry, delete bloatware and other unneeded software, and keep things running smoothly. Install a VPN to encrypt your internet connection, keeping your online activities and IP address hidden from online spies. And anti-tracking software can keep you safe from online tracking and price discrimination.
It depends which version of Windows you’re upgrading from. If you’re upgrading from Windows 7 Service Pack 2 and above, you don’t need to uninstall AVG AntiVirus. Just make sure you have the latest version of AVG AntiVirus installed on your Windows 7 PC by clicking the Update button in AVG AntiVirus.
If you’re updating from Windows XP or Windows Vista, then yes, before upgrading to Windows 10, uninstall AVG AntiVirus Free. After the upgrade is complete, reinstall AVG AntiVirus Free to continue enjoying our powerful, free protection.
