AVG Anti Virus 2015: 1 Year Free!

Many of us are sitting at our computers right now, browsing the internet with some sort of anti-virus program running. There are a number of choices when it comes to anti-virus software, but one aspect that always reels people in is a freebie on a reputable program. That’s what you can get just now from AVG – they’re offering a completely free one year subscription to their 2015 Anti-Virus software!

I last wrote about a freebie similar to this back in September 2014 here, though that was the AVG Internet Security software at that time. This time it’s the anti-virus that’s free!

Here’s what you need to do to get this program for free:

  1. Scroll down to the “INSTALLATION FILES (PAID VERSION).”
  2. Click on your chosen AVG version.
  3. Download and install the program.
  4. Apply the license key ABLAD-A2XEL-DUIGR-AIMDV-TAKLW-3WIDO to activate.

I’ve just tested this out and it is working well. As you can see at the bottom left of the screenshot below, it says it’s good to June 2016 – that’s the full year’s subscription.

AVG Anti Virus 2015: 1 Year Free!

AVG’s site states that they currently protect 202 million active users! That’s a heck of a lot! That number just goes to show you that this is good software, used by millions of people all over the world. Now, not everyone LOVES it, there are some dissenters out there. But for basic home use, it does the job.

To show you an example of the value of this freebie, check this out. You can buy the same items (albeit for use on 3 accounts) for $49.99 @ Best Buy Canada just now. Here, on AVG’s own site, you’ll pay $39.99 for this software, the full version. So if your current anti-virus subscription is about to expire, or you just need a new piece of anti-virus protection for a new computer, this deal could come in very handy.

Freebie: Get AVG Internet Security 2015 for FREE @ Shareware On Sale (Was $55)

Freebie: Get AVG Internet Security 2015 for FREE @ Shareware On Sale (Was $55)

Internet security and computer security software in general can come with a hefty price tag but right now, you can get AVG Internet Security 2015 for free! It was originally priced at $54.99. No code necessary but hurry because this awesome freebie expires at the end of the week-end.

Freebies like these rock but the trick is not to miss them. There is no telling when we might get word of another free download of an internet security software, so definitely do not pass up on this offer.

To get it, simply click on the big button with the words: “Download It Now” that you will see once you click over to Shareware On Sale’s site. First of all, no worries about their site as it’s completely safe and second of all, you will need to enter your e-mail address after clicking the button. You will also need to specify which out of the following devices you intend to use AVG Internet Security for: Windows, Mac, Android or iPhone/ iPad. There is no limit on how many you can select.

You will then be re-directed to the downloads page, where you will be given the choice between a couple of downloads depending on how many devices you chose. In my case, I only chose Windows and was given four download links: 2 geared towards USA users and 2 towards international users. For each, I was given the choice between getting the 32-bit or 64-bit downloads. That’s it, from there AVG Internet Security immediately began its installation.

PC Mag has given this software a good rating of 3.5/5 stars praising its no-hassle configurations but stating that the “spam filter missed a lot”. CNET, on the other hand, gave AVG Internet Security an outstanding rating of nearly 5/5 stars and it even has nearly 4/5 stars on the user rating scale with over 300 votes!

If you’re on the fence about trying AVG Internet Security, the great part about it is that it’s free. If you don’t like it, you can just uninstall it but it sure beats having some kind of protection as opposed to none at all. In fact, even AVG is selling it for a slightly higher price tag: that of $59.99.

Canadian Freebies: AVG Internet Security 2014 (1 Year, 1 PC)

Posted by on September 13, 2014 at 1:00 PM

Canadian Freebies: AVG Internet Security 2014 (1 Year, 1 PC)

AVG Internet Security is a popular piece of software from AVG.com, and they’re currently selling the 2015 range. However, you can get a free license key which is good for one PC for a one year subscription. Here’s how to get it:

The above links are for the 2014 installer but they will automatically assign you with a free license key for the 2015 version – worth $59.99! I’ve just done this on my computer myself, so I will walk through it with you.

When you click the above links, you will get a popup asking you to download the software. That’s a legit download from AVG.com, so just hit save and save it to your computer. Once that is done, just go through with the installation process. First off, you get a message that you have an outdated version, so it gets the newest version for you. Choose your language, accept the T&Cs, it creates a license key on your screen, so copy that to your clipboard just in case. Go through with the express install, and finish the process.

The above image is the screenshot of the product loading up when I had finished the install. As you can see, a free trial… mine said 374 more days!

There you have it: some nice free internet security software for your PC that is good for the next year!

AVG Internet Security has a ton of good features, such as blocking viruses, spyware and malware, as well as things like an enhanced firewall and a link scanner as you browse. It’s a very popular product so this is a super freebie.

AVG: Get 40% of AntiVirus or Internet Security 2014 when you Pay with PayPal!

AVG: Get 40% of AntiVirus or Internet Security 2014 when you Pay with PayPal!

Get AVG Anti Virus 2014 or Internet Security 2014 for 40% off when you pay with PayPal!

You have the use the above link to get the deal.

PayPal has been doing a lot of these deals lately. Get a percent off or some cash back when paying with their service. I think this is the biggest product discount I’ve seen them offer.

They’re offering the discount on a fantastic product though. AVG was the first really popular free anti-virus program. People flocked to the program because, up until then, the only players in town were Norton and McAfee. Of course there were other free ones and other paid ones but that was kind of it. I remember people were just amazed that someone was offering a free  anti-virus program.

Of course they needed to make some money so they are offering up a paid version with more protection. This is the version, AVG Anti Virus 2014, that you can buy here for $23.99 (was $39.99, save $16) or you can get a bit more protection with AVG Internet Security 2014 for $32.99 (was $54.99, save $22) if you feel like a little more. Remember though, you only get the deals when you pay with PayPal!

These are digital downloads so there is no shipping.
