More About This Product

Overview

This application is recommended for ages 4+.

Make AVG® your first download to keep your new NOOK® safe.

AVG AntiVirus PRO protects your NOOK by scanning apps and files for malware and viruses, and helps prevent you from visiting malicious websites when browsing the internet. Your NOOK is a powerful, internet-connected, mini-computer, and therefore at risk to the same predators and hackers that try to harm you when using a PC. AVG brings its 21 years experience in protecting PCs, Laptops,and mobile devices to help keep your NOOK safe too.
The following features work together to protect both your NOOK and your personal data:
App Scanner - Scans apps to help ensure that malware will not infect your NOOK. Run scans manually or set up automatic daily or weekly scans easily.
File Scanner - Scans for malware, spyware, viruses and lets you remove them with a simple click. It protects your NOOK while youre using your favorite apps, protecting your books, magazines, music and videos. Choose between running manual scans or automatic daily or weekly scans.
Safe Web Surfing- When using the browser on your NOOK, it is important that you visit only safe websites. AVG helps by using our LinkScanner® technology to check websites in real time and inform you of possible threats before you click on them. Youll be protected whether you are using a search engine, or typing a web address directly.

    Not helpful

    This app has no user controls and does not show any detail. The 10 sec scan does not make you feel secure that it even did anything.

    AVG isworking very well for me.

    It scans my Nook Color at least once aday. It does it all in the backgroud so my other reading or activity is not interupted. When it is done it leaves anotification in case I want to check derptails. I wish I had gotten when I first got my Nook. If you are getting a new Nook make this your first purchase!

    Cannot connect to internet with this app!

    The only way I could delete it was by getting another connection. Waste of money... I need to use password to delete but need to connect to do that. Kinda like the movie Gravity, you keep spinning and going in circles. Nook has really crappy apps!

    AVG anti-virus

    I don't think this app does anything but spin around. I have an e-mail I threw out for 20 times and it keeps coming back on here every time I go away from the e-mail. Using the old version didn't help and then I wasted $2 on the new version and it still doesn't help. I never even opened the e-mail because I know what this person sends, jokes and other junk I don't have time for any more. The mail should still have been thrown out by now.

    Highly recommended for android devices.

    It is a little complicated to set the settings to not cause any problems. I would give it 5 stars but for this problem.

    Waste of money

    I have not seen in any way that this app has help protect my nook. It shows when it is suppodely is doing a scan. You never see how you are being protected. It also never shows when there is a problem. I have gotten two viruses since purchasing, why did it not detect them? I would sugest not to purchase this. You will be throwing money away!!!

    Works fine for me.  I had no problems installing and it  performs satisfactorily.  I can read books and still play games and have not encountered any issues.

    Does what it's supposed to.

    Haven't had any issues. I use AVG on my laptop too. It's a good program and the company keeps its products up to date.
