Years ago, internet security was a uncommon term. What did we need to secure? Today, you hear the term often. Everyone protects their computer with some type of software. I had a trial on my netbook but was looking for a full software program to protect what I do on my computer. I was recently given a copy of AVG Internet Security 9.0 for review and I am very pleased.
Internet Security 9.0 protects you while you surf, shop, bank, and download. You don’t have to worry about spam, viruses, or identity theft. I have had a computer that was basically wiped out because of a virus, so virus protection is a huge selling point for me. But, with the constant spam threats and the newer identity theft scares, those features make AVG Internet Security 9.0 a great buy.
AVG has been around for 19 years and have more than 110 million users. With free technical support and free upgrades throughout the time of your subscription, you are guaranteed to have the most up-to-date software at all times. With AVG Internet Security 9.0, you get many great features including:

Since installing the AVG Internet Security 9.0 on my netbook, I have had no problems. The installation was very easy and there were clear steps to follow. My computer is running fast but is still catching some issues before they become real problems. LinkScanner® is checking web pages when it is most important – right before I click on them. Knowing I am protected before I even get to the page is a huge relief to me.
