Update for AVG AntiVirus FREE 19.3.3084

NEW:
• Firewall improvements - It’s now easier to access your network profiles in Firewall settings
• A safer UEFI - Anti-rootkit scan now protects your UEFI (unified extensible firmware interface)

FIXED:
• For users who still have Data Safe, your safe is now accessible after installation — no restart necessary
• Fixed our boot-time scan
• Made sure our UI loads correctly
• Fixed a bug for our users in Russia where Passive Mode sometimes turned on for no reason (Сожалею!)

Best Regards,

Maybe you needed to update to a new version manually in the past? :unsure:

How does AVG compare to Avast these days?
In times long ago, the protection was a little better, but there was a performance penalty and the GUI was't good.
How are things now?

Its more to this : Our free antivirus software just got even better. It now includes real-time security updates, scans for both malware and performance issues.
-----------------------
Seems like before there were no realtime security updates.... so it might be more cloud, more instant updates with signatures.

The structure is almost the same, just a different GUI
Its very light and my computer runs very smooth with AVG, i like its performance which is good for gaming.
