We are contemplating (very strongly) using AVG and I'm looking at the differences between the Free Edition and the Full Edition. One of the differences I see is that the Full Edition has an "enhanced firewall" protection. Does that mean the the Free Edition has a firewall, but just not an advanced one? Or does that mean that the Full Edition is the ONLY edition with a firewall? By saying it has an enhanced firewall, I'm thinking that it means that the firewall in the Full Edition is just a better firewall than the one in the free edition or the Anti-Virus Edition. (Or does the Anti-Virus edition not have a firewall either? LOL)

Any thoughts you can provide on this would be great...I know that DH will want a Firewall when we do switch from our current protection plan.

This is part of AVG Internet Security http://free.avg.com/ww-en/download-avg-anti-virus-free-edition?cmpid=fr_bn_free_670 (scroll down) & also AVG Anti-Virus & Firewall 9.0 Pro (paid for) version http://www.avg.com/gb-en/product-avg-anti-virus-plus-firewall.

Thanks for this...I was looking at the "free.avg.com" site so wasn't seeing all the options. :nerd: I will show this to DH and see what he says.

Hi,

just small clarification: by enhanced firewall we would like to emphasize that the AVG 9.0 Firewall was significantly enhanced comparing to the one in AVG 8.5 paid versions.

Thanks.

Firewall Exceptions..

AVG Free Edition firewall is blocking a site where I do some of my homework. I need to know how to put some exceptions in so that I can do my homework. Does anyone know how, and if it can be done in the free version? :undecided:
