AVG safeguards you from accidentally opening infected files by placing them in quarantine. The antivirus intelligently collects data on new threats by harnessing the power of its giant user base and their PCs - but you can opt out of this feature if you want to. When AVG recognizes a problem quite often a Fix button will appear on your computer screen. If you give approval then AVG will attempt to correct the problem swiftly. AVG waits until your computer is not being used before it begins its scans to reduce hogging up resources. It is smart enough to ignore files that it has already approved. It has a game mode feature to ease your apprehension that a game will be interrupted by a scan. The Deep Scan feature is very unique. Deep Scan will run a new Boot-Time scan to discover potential threats before Windows starts.
Bullguard prevents malicious software from hijacking your browser and changing your browser settings. It can be so frustrating if a virus alters your home page and your toolbars in your internet browser. BullGuard's unwanted app tool blocks these programs and stops them from changing your settings. Bullguard also stops threats on dangerous websites you may visit. Malicious code often hides in websites. When you unknowingly click on a link your PC can become infected. BullGuard safe browsing warns you of hidden danger lurking in websites. BullGuard also has some social media features. It will check all the links that come up in your search results and on your Facebook page. You will be notified if a website you visit is a threat.
