    I hear a lot of talk about it on here. How does it compare to Avast? Also why is it the best if you think it is?

    Huh? Download progam for free. Install program for free. Use progam for free. Update definitions for free. If you want the professional version, its only $33 for two years.

    Both are tremendously better than Norton and McAfee

    I personally use avast, i've found it to be a lot smoother running and consistantly better than AVG, but to each his own.. you can't go wrong with either one

    To your everyday user, I'd recommend avast over AVG

    The upgrade is like Opera or Firefox to IE

    AVG is great I don't use anything else and I've converted most of my family and friends to it as well.
