AVG Technologies has available a variety of antivirus and computer security programs, including AVG Anti-Virus, AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition and AVG Internet Security. The programs perform a variety of security tasks, such as scanning for viruses and blocking untrusted connections.
The IDS Application
The IDS application is one of the main components of any AVG security software. It scans continuously to identify suspicious software that may be attempting to access your computer and/or compromise your data.
If AVG IDS Is Running
If a process identified as AVG IDS is running on your computer even though you have not installed an AVG product, it should be removed. If you do have an AVG product installed, it is important for your computer's security that you keep the AVG IDS application running at all times.
