First, get the latest virus definition updates from here using another computer that has internet access and put a copy of the virus definition file in a USB stick or a CD.

Unless I am some sort of kaspersky fanboy I will never be too inclined to the idea of using Kaspersky over Norton.

I do not ever use the computer for gaming purposes. -" Know that you will most likely never even encounter most of these so-called threats..." Well, that's what you think... But if I ever came across an issue where the file was quarantined, norton always provided with a restore option, so I don't see any harm done.

You can select a different installation location on the local system, and disable the Web and Email protection components that the program ships with.

Web protection installs a Link Scanner module only, and not Online Shield which is only included in AVG Anvi Virus Pro or Internet Security.

Keeping your computer safe from viruses is extremely important, especially if your computer is connected to the Internet.

Antivirus software can help you keep your computer safe, but only if you keep its virus definitions up-to-date.

The core difference between both products is that Protection Free offers multi-device protection and controls using AVG Zen, an online dashboard.

AVG appears to be in a transition phase away from Anti Virus Free to Protection Free, as the latter is advertised on AVG's main website while the former is only available through back channels.

Open the antivirus program and look for "Update", "Check for updates", "Live Update", or something similar.
