AVG Protective Cloud Technology, AVG Community Protection Network and AVG Anti-Spyware
AVGвЂ™s core layers of protection make sure you canвЂ™t receive or unintentionally spread even the toughest threats.
AVG Protective Cloud Technology, new for 2011, constantly carries out tests пїЅ?in the cloudвЂ™ over the internet to identify the latest emerging threats. Once we have identified threats we develop solutions and then update AVG on your computer in near real-time.
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.
AVG Anti-Spyware protects you from spyware and adware вЂ“ the same kind of malware that is often very difficult to remove, which is why we prevent it from getting to you in the first place.
Play games and watch movies without interruption
AVG Game Mode
Hassle-free protection that works in the background while you play games and watch movies.
Non-stop action and non-stop protection. There is no need to run scheduled updates and scans as game and movie mode works in the background, making sure you donвЂ™t get interrupted with frustrating messages while you are having fun. It is fast, quiet, and efficient and constantly on the lookout for potential threats.
AVG Smart Scanning works while you play
AVG 2011вЂ™s scans are even faster. 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.
