AVG continues to deliver essential free antivirus protection with the launch of AVG AntiVirus FREE 2015. It goes beyond simply detecting and removing viruses on your PC by blocking infected links as you browse, checking files before they're downloaded, and helping protect your personal data online and on your PC with enhanced privacy features.
