I should be honest, I hate anti-viruses of all kind. I find them useless. I had to install an anti-virus on my computer just to comply my customers' request. I wouldn't, if I had another choice.

So I've installed Avast Premium Security... That was the first anti-virus that I have installed since maybe 15 happy years during which I've been happily using my system without any security problem.

While installing Avast, my hope was that tech was changed so that anti-virus softwares are a little bit more tolarable... Nothing more! But as I see, it became worse than 15-20 years before.

First of all, it is one of the worst experiences that I have to write these into a 90's style forum page instead of receiving a decent support!

First thing I experience after installing Avast was random annoying Internet disconnection, which happens to be fixed only after restarting my device, but only sometimes! I tried to shut down shields (which I shouldn't) however it never became a solution.

Secondly, Avast installed an unnecessary browser into my computer which I don't use and will never use, that pops up any time.

I'm sure taht Avast guys won't be willing to help in any way... So I'd like to ask only if you know any other anti-virus solution that is at least less annoying!

Thanks for suggestions
