AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition 2012 v12.0.1831

AVG Anti-Virus 2012 Free is the very latest edition of the popular, free antivirus engine.

The main change in this edition is a new focus on performance. The program uses up to 20% less memory, and has cut the number of background processes on your system. The antivirus database has shrunk in size by 40%, and the scans are faster, too.

A few small interface changes mean you now get integrated links to assorted AVG addons: Family Safety (parental controls), LiveKive (online backup) or PC Tuneup. All these are optional extras which you'll have to pay to enjoy in full, although some of the subscriptions are surprisingly reasonable: clicking Family Safety shows that covering 3 PCs for a year will cost only £0.95.

Aside from the built-in real-time and on-demand malware protection, AVG Anti-Virus 2012 Free also provides some browsing protection in the shape of its LinkScanner and SurfShield technologies. These aim to block access to malicious websites, and will keep some threats at bay, though not quite as many as the best of the commercial tools.

And also new this time around is the AVG Advisor, which monitors your PC for various problems - a browser which is using too much RAM, say - and then pops up to warn you, and offer various solutions. In theory this sounds reasonable, but it'll take some time before we can decide how useful the feature really is.

RAW Image Viewer 3.2

RAW Image Viewer 3.2

The RAW Image Viewer is a simple tool for viewing digital photos in a few RAW formats: specifically, Canon CRW and CR2, Nikon NEF and Fuji RAF.

The emphasis really is on the word "simple", here. There's no thumbnail browser, no print option, no editing tools, very little in the way of extra features: the program can open files in these formats, zoom and rotate them, and save them again in more standard formats (JPG, TIFF and so on), and that's all.

Still, this does make the program very simple to use. Everything you need is available in a few toolbar buttons and you'll feel at home right away.

And, of course, many image viewers can't handle RAW formats particularly well, if at all, so if you work with these formats occasionally then a simple viewer (with a file conversion option) could be very useful.

Please note, while the program is entirely free, it will attempt to install the Babylon browser toolbar during the setup process. If that's not what you want then don't just keep clicking Next during installation: pay attention to what's happening, and once you get to the Babylon Toolbar screen, clear the relevant check boxes and it won't be installed.
