Features and support
AVG 2012 includes a couple of solid changes to make you safer. The first is a patent-pending technique for identifying one of the most obnoxious threats to ever reach your computer: the fake antivirus. If you’re unfamiliar, these programs purport to be an antivirus, or a Web-based antivirus scan. Once they install on your computer, the only way to get rid of the infection is to “buy” their license. They’re also related to the ransomware infections, which don’t even bother with the effort to pretend to be an antivirus. AVG 2012 will block both of them.
