Consider this a Coupon code for your AVG antivirus discount special for may 2016.
I have Installed AVG free previously , because it’s what I have trusted and recommended to friends for years as a solid free anti-virus to have in the background in addition to Malwarebytes every few days. By default it installs zen and PC tuneup. I Don’t think much of it because I don’t use extensive features of the program, but its okay if those features are of use to you.
I have also written about a comparison of different Antivirus software over here , if you want a detailed price comparison of Online protection software.
