Family Safety will be available for 99c with the entire proceeds being donated to The Red Cross. The site also has a useful book to assist parents to discuss internet safety with pre-schoolers called, "Little Bird's Internet Security Adventure."
Next, there is the new download accelerator. This component will dramatically improve the speed of downloads from two sites identified and having some of the largest impact on file transfer; Download.com and YouTube.com. Gone (with any luck) will be the endless pauses while attempting to watch the latest Justin Bieber video!
AVG research suggests that significant improvement will be made on files of at least 8MB.
Finally, AVG 2012 has added patent-pending technology to detect fake AntiVirus. Fake AV generally has two possible intentions - to cheat the 'victim' out of money by finding faults that it will happily fix (for a fee) or to install some malware.
AVG 2012 is aware of many of the characteristics of such software and can alert the user to the impact of agreeing to use this software.
AVG 2012 is available for immediate download. Pricing for a one-year, one-seat licence for AVG Internet Security 2012 is A$69.99. A one year, one-seat licence for AVG Anti-Virus 2012 is A$51.50. Two year licence periods are also available, plus multi-packs of 2, 3, 5 or 10 seat licences (with LiveKive and Family Safety to be available soon).
