Scan smarter and faster
AVG Smart Scanning works while you play
AVG 2011вЂ™s scans are 3 times faster than previous versions. AVG Smart Scanning works while youвЂ™re away and runs in low-priority mode when you return.
AVG Smart Scanning makes sure you can work and play without being interrupted. It starts scanning in high-priority mode whenever you leave your PC and switches to low-priority mode, using minimal resources, every time you move your mouse or push a key on your keyboard. Scans are now much faster as well because AVG Smart Scanning doesnвЂ™t waste time scanning the trusted files it knows are safe.

AVG Community Protection Network is new for 2011 and is like an online neighborhood watch, helping everyone in the online community to protect each other. Information about the latest threats is collected from customers who choose to participate in the product improvement program and shared with the community to make sure everyone receives the best possible protection.
