AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition 8.0
Free Must-Have Netbook Apps

Contents:  
/uploadedImages/review/round-up/2009/images/april-09/netbook-app-avg_sh.jpg Your netbook needs protection from Web security threats, just like any other Web-enabled PC, but you don’t want to bog your machine down with a heavy suite that zaps system resources. AVG Free 8.0 will protect your Windows system against adware, identity theft, spyware and, of course, viruses—all without disrupting performance. It lacks some of the added features of the subscription version, like safe downloads and instant messaging protection, but this lightweight program runs in the background without causing hang-ups.
