In my opinion, it isn't a bad package, but you can get the same functionality for free with a firewall and HIPS like Comodo, antivirus/malware real time protection with Microsoft Security Essentials and/or WinPatrol, etc.

There are a lot of advocates for different security solutions here - just check the "Security" forum for threads on which is the "best". IMHO, it comes down to what you do with your system and whether you want to pay for a solution.

If you're looking for a free AV, I'd suggest MSE instead of AVG. I have tried the new version of AVG but I dislike it.

You mention AVG Internet Security, [ not Anti Virus or Anti Virus plus Firewall .]
Assuming you mean the paid version 9.0. -
Why do I like & use it on two computers?
Because it does exactly what AVG claims - offers multiple layers of protection, doesn't slow my computers down, includes Identity Protection Technology, has an efficient Link Scanner, high speed scanning, I can safely exchange photos & other files with friends over social networking sites, download music, use email without worrying about phishers, scammers & spammers , and I am offered free, friendly support around the clock in the unlikely event that I will need it.
As you may gather I am very happy with AVG.
