Considering its price and dependability, I'd say it's worth it...

But better invest more on some antivirus that's more dependable and have more integrity.

#101 (Jr. Johnson) and 104 (ww2vet56): I could not let your insulting remarks pass without a response. I did indeed include av-comparatives.org in my list of test site links. You just didn't read carefully. You didn't read the av-comparatives page very carefully either.

I linked to the av-comparatives home page instead of to the actual test tables because I respected the warning printed in bright red under the tables: "It is forbidden to provide the tables or results in full or in parts on other sites! Please just refer a link to www.av-comparatives.org".

Also, while av-comparatives tested AVG anti-malware, most of the tests focused on AVG's antivirus functionality, which is in AVG Antivirus. And anyway, I clearly stated in my first comment (#11) that AVG is less effective than Avast and AntiVir - but you didn't read that one carefully, either.

I included many links to show #42 that there are multiple testing and reviewing organizations, and was responding to #42's specific question about AVG.

I hope this clarifies matters.

Installed with no problem on XP Home sp3. Restarted machine and couldn't access program. Checked Task Manager and found only had half of my processes running. Restarted again and still no show. Uninstalled Outpost, and now trying to get Antivir working right again. Looks like system restore time.
Sorry to say thumbs down on this one GAOTD.

I thought that I was rather smart when it came to computer technology, but that's only because I'm in a profession that only uses them and not write or evaluate programs. And, most of the people I know get lost after turning on the computer!! I suppose about the only thing I would like to address (and this may not be the proper place but it's better than not at all), is ??? how do you know which is better than another since it always seems like there is new versions of similar programs coming out all the time ???? I am reluctant to purchase without a trial period to see if the product actually does what I want it to (or at least think it's doing what I want it to do), but, for example, if you have more than 1 "cleaning" program installed, I have found that the first one cleans and the 2nd finds the same thing to clean again. Therefore, appearantly the first didn't clean. You know what I mean???? I'm wondering also why some of these programs aren't delisted from some of these sites??? At some point in time I would think that their usefulness would expire with upgraded or newer versions. Thanks to gaotd for their giveaways. I have used some of them and appreciate them, with or without the support or updates. Afterall, they are free and you can't complain about free. Thanks again guys!!!

Your wish is my co...com...comm...aaa...nd :-)
Look here though it's in German: http://www.testberichte.de/test/produkt_tests_grisoft_avg_antivirus_free_edition_7_5_p110858.html

To put it short, AVG Free's rating by four German pc magazines (between 5/2007 and 1/2008) got an average score of 3,2 (C grade in US school marks) which means it was rated quite far from being "good".
The first magazine (PC Welt) comes up with the conclusion that AVG Free's security performance was "not convincing". The second (PC Praxis) says it's a good combo package overall but the virus recognition was prone to failure.
CHIP found AVG Free to be weak when it comes to the recognition of known and unknown malware thus scoring it 56 out of 100 points. And the last magazine, Windows Vista, wants to give 3 out of 5 stars for the prog. While seeing as an upside it being free for home users plus the scores it achieved with the recognition of ITW viruses, there are big cons concerning the recognition of ad- and malware, zip viruses as well as office viruses.

Thanks for the offer but, no thanks. I just purchased KasperSky for 2 years and 3 comps. To the people that are all spooked about having more then one virus scanner on your computer, relax. Seriously, you can have as many virus scanners as you wish. You can only use one at a time though.
It's true you should never have more then one virus scanner running at the same time on count of major conflicts but you can have a dozen virus scanners installed on the same comp. I wouldn't only because I run the online scanners from time to time.
I could see someone benefiting with todays give away if there pay virus scanner was about to run out and didn't want to spend the cash or you have a free virus scanner and just want to try something new, why not, right ?
Either way I can't understand why all the thumbs down ???? It is after all virus protection offered up free regardless even if their is other free virus applications out there.
Thank you GAOTD. team and the vendor of this virus scanner.

Use AVG Free, ZoneAlarm Free (an older non-buggy version!), Spybot Search & Destroy & Theatfire. All work flawlessly together - but then dialup is easy to keep safe these days since most have broaband connections ;)

Judging by the comments of thoise with freezing/lockup problems, I think I'll pass on trying this app...

To re-iterate #101's comment. The only real AV testing site with accurate results, post testing is:
http://www.av-comparatives.org/seiten/ergebnisse_2007_02.php
This app and this company is not listed there, nor is AVG free, just AVG anti-malware. Imagine that! Only Avast Pro is listed along with the upper level AV's like Kaspersky. NOD32 and AntiVir Personal Premium which out ranks all mentioned here. Maybe just the paid AV's are or are even worth the time to be tested. It's up to each user as to which siuts them but I choose Kaspersky, AntiVir and NOD32 as the only three I'll ever use. I've actually lost a hard drive with all it's data to a virus. A top ranked AV and regular back-ups are now mandatory at home and the office.

Get a grip # 70. How about a reliable AV testing site like http://www.av-comparatives.org/seiten/ergebnisse_2007_02.php instead of the goofy sites you so foolishly depend on, where I saw no actual virus rating, just some jive BS nonsense. Only a newb would be taken in so redily. AVG anti-malware is the only app by Grisioft listed here or at vbr testing labs. I won't talk down on anothers choice but yu will never see it or any other Grisoft app, even the pro version given to me for free on any machine I own at home or at my office. This is no place to debate how crappy AVG is, take it to another user forum. -- edited --

IMHO,
Avast4Home is my recommended anti-virus program,
ClamWin is my recommended secondary anti-virus program,
SuperAntiSpyware is my recommended anti-spy/mal/adware program,
SpybotSearch&Destroy is my recommended anti-spy/mal/adware program,
ZoneAlarm free version, or Ashampoo free version are my recommended Firewall programs,
the above all have free versions for the home user.
AVG is one I no longer recommend, as there is a trojan out there that has the ability to cause AVG to crash,
MSWindows Firewall is not recommended, as it really doesn't do it's job.
By all means, if you don't have any anti-virus program, then you might use today's GAOTD, but, as I mentioned, do a Search and get the free versions of the one's I have recommended, and keep them all updated on a daily basis.
Of course, IMHO.

Thanks for your involvement.
People should read your comment twice before installing this AV.
I usually enjoy testing software,but I am not jeopardizing my system for a 6 months antivirus solution.

If you really want to :

Do make a system restore point prior to installing and make sure you have a recovery cd or a recent image at close range.

And if someone has a positive comment, *please* post it.Thanks.

I have had many antivirus programs at once (actually, up to 7) on my computer, with no problem.

The trick is to have only one active, while all others are deactivated, being used only for occasional scanning.

You have to use a program such as WinPatrol, to achieve this deactivation of the other installed antivirus software.

Re: post 81 Damian.........Thanks for taking the time to 'guinea pig' this product. I was about to do the same thing.

Your post has been the most valuable to me of the bunch. Thanks for saving me the bother :)

I have spent a pretty good amount of time searching the net for unbiased opinions and reviews on this product. There is very little information to be found.

It would also be helpful and comforting to see one of the developers of Outpost Antivirus post in this thread to show some interest in the concerns raised by many above posters.

based on the comments so far, I would stay away from this particular anti-virus...

However, this would probably be better than something like Mcaffee...

I would spend the money and get NOD32 - the best AV on the market in my opinion..

I got it last year and I haven't had a single virus or ad-ware problem, and it has only asked me about something ONCE in the entire time I have had it...it uses few resources, runs smoothly and effectively, and you can download it straight from the Internet (although you don't have to)... I use it with ZoneAlarm (free) and it seems that Zonealarm is always bugging me... but its better than the Windows Firewall...

NOD32 is worth the money...far more than Norton or Mcaffee (especially Mcaffee)

Upon extensive testing and review for this product, we have found that it removed 84% of viruses that were 6 months old. However, when used on newer viruses it found only 76%. It was pretty much the same result as with Trojans and other computer mal-ware. Its real time protection only blocked 65% of attempts, and allowed malicious sites to be displayed.

Ranking: 71-Good

Firewall Challenge results from independent tester, Matousec (3/18/08):

"Comodo Firewall Pro 3.0.21.329 and Online Armor Personal Firewall 2.1.0.119 Free are leading with a perfect score. Both these products are free. ProSecurity 1.43 and Outpost Firewall Pro 2008 6.0.2302.264.0490 were also excellent in the tests."

Many free and payware firewalls are tested. After top group, results fall fast. Most fail badly. Check it out @ http://www.matousec.com/projects/firewall-challenge/results.php

Your Mileage May Vary (a continuation to post #69)

Okay - I know it's only been an hour but this is what happened to me.

I have XP PRO SP2 with hotfixes.

I disabled Kaspersky and installed Outpost Antivirus Pro.
Installation is slow due to Malware updates that the installation downloaded - once done I rebooted.
On bootup I had 2 errors in a row that Windows had recovered from fatal errors.
When I got to my desktop I noticed that my wireless adapter was not connected so I tried to refresh the wireless list - no go.
I then tried to repair my wireless connection but it froze.

I rebooted and uninstalled Kaspersky (just in case).

In settings I disabled Web Control and was able to connect to the internet. I then reinstalled Outpost Antivirus Pro incase it was a botched install and rebooted again.

Again unable to connect to internet even though Web control was disabled - re-enabled and disabled it again - still unable to connect and repair again resulted in the wireless connection tool to freeze.

Scanned a folder with 2 trojans and a virus of which Outpost Antivirus Pro found 1.

At this point I'm getting fed-up, so I tried to uninstall Outpost Antivirus Pro and it froze. Rebooted and tried to uninstall again this time successfully - Thank God!

Reinstalled Kaspersky and scanned the same folder with the trojans and virus - it found them all.

I cannot recommend this software due to the problems I encountered. After more than 12 years of heavy computing I just don't have the patience anymore to deal with these kinds of problems, so I am not going any further with this.

Again you may or may not have issues with this product - I just thought I'd give it a try - for a moment or two I was thinking I'd have to recover my system but it appears to be back to "normal".

Hope this helps someone out there - I think that if you're happy with the solution you currently use you may want to stick with it - If you're not happy then try another product (preferably one that you can read about in detail to make an informed decision - in my honest opinion Outpost Antivirus Pro is NOT it.

Thx for this offer, but i will pass.
I used Kaspersky 7 and it the best you can find,
but for some reasons the key where blacklisted :))
So i decided to switch back to free Avira Antivir,
its not the best one but its not the worst one too.
I can life with it.

If you are looking for a good free filewall
look for »Online Armor« it is better than zonealarm.
ZoneAlarm was at the biginning good, but now
you should choose an other firewall.

agnitum has just recently released the av software so hence the lower price deals & incentives to break into the market, reg. 1yr subscription is $19.95. the software contains the hips and antimalware engines of the OSS suite firewall product as well as the malware site blocking. it also has a polymorphic heuristics scanner option that was rated 'bronze' in a recent 3rd party AV test, same as trend, symantec,sophos, and panda. OSS has been shipped for over a year now, but av tests are few and far between. the anti-virus engine and definitions come from a third party but have the addition of additional definitions from agnitums existing dedicated staff and anti-spyware and antimaleware egines written by and integrated by agnitum, (the 3rd party engine has also been updated since it's less than sterling performance last year) these additons are based on but not the same as their venerable tauscan antispyware and their definitions crew that has been taken over by OSS. the outpost user run forum (www.outpostfirewall.com) has recently added a subforum for the AV product, so support there is available and will be getting better as more users build up. i personally use the OSS suite product so will not be using the AV as i already have it as part of the suite.i do not have any other resident AV scanner but do use some of the free ones in non-resident mode as a check on OSS. they have never found anything that has got past oss. if you have an existing AV, free or paid you are happy with, you'll likely want to stay with it till it expires anyhow, if you are thinking of changing a soon to expire one, this is a good one to try.

(Note: Sometimes the paid versions are tested, but these generally use the same virus detection and removal mechanisms as the free ones. Exception: The new AVG 8 is available only for payment, and has not filtered down to the free offering yet.)

I looked only for antivirus tests and reviews, not for multi-module security suites. If I looked harder, I would probably find still more results.

Over the years I've tried Norton, Panda, AVG free (for over 5 years), several of the online scanners (as backup) and a couple others who's names I cannot recall now.

Recently I tried Kaspersky 7 and it found things on my PC and my backup drive that the others had let through over time - I was flabbergasted!

Remember though that the best solution today is not neccessarily the best solution tomorrow. No antivirus product has always been the best one. So find what you're happy with but remember that nothing is infallible.

I myself am going to disable Kaspersky, install this and throw some trojans and viruses at it out of curiosity.

I'll be back later with the results.

Thanks GOTD.

Thank you for this offer. I must say that as an MCSE [Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer} and Novel CNE. I do not suggest more than one anti-virus programs running on your computer. Please don't get me wrong - I am not trying to come across as a "know it all" telling you about my computer credentials - I have been around computers for a very long long time. I have tested the effects of more than one program on a computer, and what I discovered was more problems then it is worth. What I suggest is that you find a good program, one you like, one that is easy to understand, easy to configure, offers free definition updates and at least access to FAQ's for help when needed. All software companies want to do is have us buy as many programs as possible - for their benefit. In computing it is easy - KEEP IT SIMPLE, and you will be much better off. Get TOTALLY familiar with all the programs you have and what they can do, before investing in the "Latest and greatest" You would be surprised at how many people I spoke to as I started out doing Technical Support that did not know how to use all the features of their current version of software and yet wanted to upgrade to the latest version, because it is the "IN" thing to do. I have ever only used two virus programs - AND NOT AT THE SAME TIME, and those are AVG FREE, and AVAST. I discovered through extensive lab testing that these two programs are just fine. Just remember to have all the features of the programs enabled. In AVG's case live monitoring of DOWNLOADS is a must have, I have been saved time and time again by this feature. Enjoy and have fun, but at the same time be careful it is really alarming seeing the amount of viruses and trojans now out on the Torrent sites. Used to be we could download and every so often a virus or trojan would be found, but I am finding now that almost every third or fourth download has a virus or trojan. One important tip is if you download an ISO. or any other image file don't run a virus scan until you have unpacked the image, then run your scan. While I know programs say they can scan into ZIP or RAR files I suggest the same process as an ISO. or image file, unpack them, and then run a virus scan. I have discovered through the lab that we find infected files inside a lot of ZIPS and RARS that scanned clean while zipped.

Cheers, Dr. L. Garth

Takes to long to install. It's STILL installing the network drivers. I think I'm about to stop the install because it's been installing for the past 20 minutes now. And my computer is new...
