    Does the free version of AVG use the same engine module as AVG Pro (paid version) and also is there really much of a difference between the two ?

    The major differences between AVG Free VS AVG Pro

    - AVG Free doesn't detect Spyware and Adware while AVG Pro does https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?p=665097#post665097
    - AVG Free has a very limited configurations in its basic interface while AVG Pro has advanced interface with more configurations
    - AVG Free doesn't have the *real automatic updates* (as free avast! home or other commercial AVs have), it only has the scheduled task to check/update once a day so if you miss you have to wait for 24 hours to check/update again
    - no official supports from Grisoft for AVG Free
