So I got fed up with AVG a few days ago and uninstalled it (quite a process) and installed Avast.
Once installed on my desktop, ran a full scan and found 7 files, very nice.
Then I installed it on my laptop, and started a full scan. It hangs up after 10/1 files/folders, at C:\Windows\SYstem32\svchost.exe (quick scan does the same). None of my svchost.exe files seem to be using more CPU/memory than normal.
I'm running windows 7 home premium SP1 and have Avast 6.0.1000.
Also I'm getting an error that I'm not running an antivirus program, but Avast says it's working.
I've also been having a problem with shutting down. It freezes in the "Logging off" screen so I have to do a hard shut down every time.
Are they connected? It is something easy? Should I just throw it out the window now?
