Here is a newer build of AVG Internet Security. Unlike the Anti-Virus, Internet Security suite comes with several components not only to detect viruses but to prevent hacking attempts, privacy protection, spam blocker and to detect rootkits. From my little experience with this product, Internet Security seemed to consume a moderate amount of system resources. As for detection rates, it’s nothing bad but I prefer the superior detection rate of Kaspersky Anti-Virus over this. But that is not to say AVG is a bad product. Give it a try.
