And I cant seem to alter the settings like I used to on AVG7.5, scans the pc everyday, cant seem to switch it off, tries to connect to the intertnet as soon as the pc is booting up, means you have to manualy check updates.
Might be me, as I'm a bit of a biff with pcs, but not as good as the old version?
I noticed the speed drop in browsing speed as the search shield etc runs along side. The slight lag is worthwhile as it has stopped a number of rogue web sites trying to force download nasties in its tracks.
System wise it runs ok now its updated etc. I still play BF2142, Eve and Supreme Commander all at full high res no probs on XP Pro.
I must admit after I first installed it I nearly dropped back to 7.5 but Im glad I stuck it out.
AVG has been the only package to stop everything nasty but if there is better out there Im all ears.
I used to run Kapersky until I got hit by a trojan that could disable it, close any browser where I typed/searched antivirus and stopped new antivirus installs. Luckily my firewall stopped the ports but it was a complete tw4t to remove. AVG was the only antivirus to find it and destroy at the first scan.
you work for norton, don't you?? never heard such a pile of crap in my life. norton is the software which takes over your system and screws you up if you try to uninstall it. i have never had any problem with AVG.
plus - norton AV running at work, AVG 8.0 at home. picked up a worm and trojan from the works PC - norton missed it, AVG got it immediately.
plus it's free. so you can keep all your norton rubbish
