Hello all!
AVG has recently released a new update of its free antivirus, I decided to test it!
AVG, bought by Avast in 2016, offers a pretty complete free antivirus.
Even if I still wonder what differentiates Avast to AVG, it offers... same as Avast!
In terms of detection, AVG blocks all malicious URLs as well as attacks from the pack.
It still has trouble with malware cleanup, or a detected file was not removed.
AVG is also annoying with its various ads like its brother Avast...

RAM Usage : Very low
Phishing Test : 2/5 (3 missed)
Malware URL test : 10/10 (all detected)
Fake crack : 1/1 (detected by database, unknow in CyberCapture)
Malware Pack : Remaining 31 threats
Result :
- AVG : 0
- Zemana 1 (2 but 1 FP.. AVG dll)
- Hitman Pro 1 (Sophos)
- McAfee 1
- NPE 2
- EEK 2
System protected but there are still malware residues

Hi Shadowra

It would be nice to see how Appguard does. It is not a AV but more an SRP.
If you decide to test it, please add these LOLbins to userspace = YES

c:\Windows\*\bitsadmin.exe
c:\Windows\*\powershell.exe
c:\Windows\*\powershell_ise.exe
c:\Windows\*\wscript.exe
c:\Windows\*\cscript.exe
c:\Windows\*\mshta.exe
c:\Windows\*\hh.exe
c:\Windows\*\wmic.exe
c:\Windows\*\scrcons.exe

Than You

I was just looking at their site and Appguard Solo is now 89 US dollars so I do not think you will be testing it:-(

I'll check it out when I have a moment, but if it doesn't have a trial version, it will be complicated yes.... :/
Tonight it's Bitdefender
