Protection against identity theft
AVG’s unique Identity Protection technology ensures that when you shop and bank online, your bank account information, passwords, and other important personally-identifiable information can’t be stolen. As a bonus, Identity Protection also keeps you safe against new and unknown threats before they can cause harm.

AVG’s anti-spam protection makes sure your email inbox is kept clear of unwanted junk mail, offers for products you don’t want or need, and solicitations from scammy marketers looking to separate you from your money.
Protection for instant messaging, downloads, and social networking
AVG’s Web Shield is on constant guard, making sure any files you exchange using MSN or ICQ instant messaging, download, or share with friends in your social networks are safe from viruses, spyware, and other nasties.
Protection against sophisticated rootkits
While AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition can detect a few rootkits, most of these threats are so complex and sophisticated that powerful tools are needed to root them out from deep inside your PC.
