AVG Technologies has released AVG Antivirus 2011, the latest version of its free antivirus. The earlier version AVG 9 Free is still quite popular among My technology Guide readers. It provides basic security protection for your computer against malwares, viruses and other malicious programs. The standard security module that AVG Antivirus Free Edition 2011 comprises of are an antivirus, anti-spyware, email scanner, resident shield, LinkScanner, anti rootkit and PC Analyze.
AVG Anti-Virus 2011 (or AVG 10 Free Antivirus) includes enhanced LinkScanner for safer Internet surfing and Email Scanner. Other new features included are Social Networking Protection, Smart Scanning, Autofix Button, Community Protection Network, and Protective Cloud Technology. Windows 7 and Vista users also gets a desktop gadget, using which you can get access to virus scanning and update the antivirus virus definition or program without opening the entire program.
This antivirus suite also introduces an entirely new feature called PC Analyzer. This new module identifies Windows registry errors, disk errors, defragment disk and removes broken shortcuts. But on the downside, the PC Analyzer does not repair the detected errors. If you want to continue using PC Analyzer you have to get the premium version of AVG.
