AVG does really well on virus test. Test it yourself if you're brave enough
But in my humble opinion AVG is great, and I did test it myself. I believe the free version is just as good as the pro version, just lacks a few features. The feature that matters, virus detection, is the same!
No antivirus program is perfect, but yes for the most part you should trust AVG free.
I use to pay for McAfee, but this is just as good.
AVG runs circles around McAfee or Norton, no doubt there in my mind
I have no experience with Kaspersky so I can't say. But other antivirus products I do recommend: Avast!
is an excellant Free anti-virus programs, and F-Prot For Windows
are not free but highly thought of. All of these AVG included do great on any legitimate virus test. Look around online.
It seems to me you are suspicious of free programs and would rather pay. A strange attitude to me who feels it is Immoral
to sell code. goes against everything I believe in and stand for that's why I'm not a programmer by profession but I am a programmer as a hobby with a Math/CS degree.
If you must pay
buy AVG Pro or NOD32.
