It's certainly accessible, but far more important than accessibility is virus detection ability. By many tests, AVG comes out near the bottom. There are several good anti-virus packages out there, my personal favorite is Nod32 from www.nod32.com. Extremely accessible and highly-rated.

Hi Bruce,

I'm thinking of switching from Mcafee Virus scan to something else. Can you
tell me why you don't think AVG is trustworthy?
Most people I talk to about it say it's good. And very accessible to Jaws.


Your thoughts would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Roger Bachelder

I believe AVG to be very untrustworthy under the best of circumstances, so
this becomes doubly important.
