Upgrading your Windows 8 PC?
There has been no support or security updates available for Windows 8 users since January 12, 2016 and now Microsoft has announced that it’s ending extended support for Windows 8.1 in January, 2023. Therefore, we strongly recommend all Windows 8.1 users to upgrade to the latest version of Windows.
AVG AntiVirus FREE ensures your computer is protected from online threats. If you're upgrading your Microsoft Windows 8 operating system, your AVG AntiVirus will continue working as it's compatible with all the latest Windows versions. Browse the internet with complete confidence, knowing that both your online security and computer are in safe hands.

AVG AntiVirus FREE is one of the best free security apps for Windows 8 because of the comprehensive protection it provides against malware, phishing attacks, Wi-Fi intruders, and other threats. Thanks to our global threat-detection network, we’re able to prevent attacks from brand-new threats as they emerge. And should your PC already be infected, AVG AntiVirus FREE can remove spyware, ransomware, and other types of malware before they can do additional harm.
It’s generally acknowledged that Windows Defender isn’t enough to fully protect your devices. While Windows Defender offers reasonable protection against ransomware and standart types of malware, its anti-phishing defenses are limited to Microsoft Edge. AVG AntiVirus FREE protects against phishing and pharming attacks no matter which browser you use. And it monitors your home network for any signs of intrusion. You’re safer when you protect your PC with strong, third-party antivirus software like AVG AntiVirus FREE.
AVG AntiVirus for Windows 8 automatically scans your PC and removes viruses and other malware, while detecting and blocking incoming malware threats.
