The 2017 edition of AVG Free Antivirus arrives with new user interface incorporated with Avast antivirus engine.AVG Antivirus Free 2017 also gets few Avast features such as passive mode and Pushed Priority Updates.

CyberCapture feature is disabled by default, you can enable this feature through settings.Without any conflicts, you can run or install AVG Antivirus Free 2017 along with your existing security software.
AVG Antivirus offers basic protection for your PC, hitting the ‘Scan Computer’ button will run full-computer scan and scan the module offers 5 types of scan options : Full Computer Scan, Deep Virus Scans, Removable media scan, File or Folder Scan and Boot-time Scan.
From the antivirus main screen, clicking the ‘fix computer performance’ button will scan your PC for registry issues, system caches & logs, browser junk, and outdated software.
But to fix these performance issues, it suggests you to install AVG PC TuneUP and its free.If you are interested go for PC TUNEUP module and its better to avoid WEB TUNEUP module, this one will just mess up your default browser by changing your browser default search engine and sets newt tab page & home page to AVG Secure Search.
The only downside of this free antivirus is, it comes with AVG Zen and there is no option to avoid or get rid of this unnecessary interface to launch AVG Antivirus UI.
