I have always run just a firewall and antivirus program for security. This has always worked well for me and I saw no reason for change (if it's not broke, don't fix it), out of curiosity, I decided to try the new AVG 7.5 Internet Security Suite and I must say, suites have come a long way since the last time I tried one, download and installation was quick and easy, running at default settings would seem adequate for most users (I've tweaked mine). I am really surprized at the resource usage, it uses about 44 MB of RAM on my system and there is no noticable impact on performance whatsoever, I mean none, it feels lighter on my system than KAV 6 and Dr.Web did, and they both ran extremely light on my laptop. AVG 7.5 performance on my laptop is unbelievable. I have always liked the AVG interface, the new interface is even nicer, it's clean, sharp, simple to use and very easy to understand, atleast for me, and having used the Windows firewall for the past three years with no problems, I find the AVG firewall a refreshing change, it has a nice layout, very easy to understand and configure, with good application control and logging features. I also like the way they integrated ewido (Anti-Spyware) into the scanner and real time monitor, this definitely enhances the protection level. The Anti-Spam module is also a nice extra (believe it or not, I've never had a spam problem), it was very easy to set up for Outlook Express, now if I could just get some spam to test it, just kidding... Anyway, my experience running this has been very positive. I like it. I have never been a "suite" kind of a guy, until now, now I seem to like the all in one concept when I think about compatability issues and conflicts between different security softwares, performance hit when running multiple applications, the hassle of updating and scanning with different programs, also, the cost of separate programs and keeping up with all the licenses and renewals makes the suite approach even more appealing. I think AVG products as a whole have been improving steadily in performance, protection and usability. I must say, I am very impressed with this product, and personally, I cannot find anything that would keep me from purchasing a license, which I might add, is very reasonable as compared to other suites on the market. This suite is a must try for anyone who would like a simple, easy to use and effective security application.
