Important notice
We’re ending support for our older security products

Computers are under attack from increasingly sophisticated malware and ransomware. AVG strives to offer the best protection. We’re ending support for our older desktop security products and updating customers to our 2016 version for FREE for the remainder of their license term to provide them with our latest protection.

With baked-in AI Detection and Real-Time Outbreak Detection technology, our 2016 antivirus products earned a 6/6 Protection score from AV-Test.org and offer improved malware, spyware, and ransomware protection. They’re also fully compatible with the newest version of Windows®.

What happens when support ends? After support has ended, the above products will no longer be available for download, and no further virus definition updates, bug fixes, maintenance, or technical support will be provided. Some security features may also stop working.What should you do? Before support ends, we’ll attempt to push a FREE UPDATE to all customers to automatically upgrade them to the newest version of their product. If they don’t receive the update, or would prefer to update at their own convenience, customers can also download our newest version here for free.
