AVG’s latest version of its Internet Security software has just been released and will be updating on customer’s machines automatically over the next few days.

So what’s new in Service Pack 1?

Inactive scans: We understand that PC’s are doing more work than ever before which is why we’ve introduced a scanning mechanic that will only scan your machine when it is idle, meaning that you get peak performance when you most need it.

PC optimization: With AVG Quick Tune, we’ve introduced some additional PC optimization tools to AVG AntiVirus and AVG Internet Security. This means you can benefit from top quality protection and make sure that your PC runs smoother, faster and suffers fewer crashes.

Existing AVG users should automatically be updated to SP1. For more information on any of our products, please follow the links in our guide to choosing the right Internet Security software below.

If you don’t have Internet Security from the AVG 2013 range, then here’s a guide to getting the best cover for you.

AntiVirus, Internet Security, PC optimization, email scanner, advanced firewall and social networking protection. The list of software that we need to keep our computers running smoothly and safely seems to grow by the day.

Shopping for security software is a lot like shopping for furniture at Ikea. First off it can be hard working out what you want, need and how much you want to spend. After you’ve finally taken the plunge, get your purchase home, you then discover that setting it up can more than a one person job!

That’s why AVG has designed our whole 2013 product range with ease of use in mind. We introduced a brand new, simplified user interface so that you can get things done with a minimum of fuss.

So what level of protection is right for you? Depending on what you use the web for, we have a product that will help you stay worry free, so you can get on with being yourself.
