There's also a dedicated telephone line for premium users, though that's only open during normal business hours.
The malware scanner utilizes machine learning and heuristic analysis to identify threats that might slip through traditional signature-based detection systems. It is able to detect rootkits trojans, worms and other sophisticated malware that may be missed by other scanners. It has an automatic scan option, a speedy scan that doesn't skip files AVG recognizes as safe, and a more thorough scan that takes a bit advice longer but provides more thorough security.
AVG's antiphishing system is extremely efficient. It also has firewalls that can be set up to block specific ports or programs.
