Though I have not used AVG for years, AVG 7.5 was quite easy to use and since it had scheduled scans, I basically had to do nothing, and it alerted me when it had updates.
Then the horror 8.0 arrived.
First it was incompatible with one of my favorite PC games, and I didn't no what else to do, so I uninstalled it. The toolbar is making IE7 start very slowly, and the scans, in 7.5 they hardly caused any lag, but 8.0 caused a lot of lag. It made my computer very
slow. Now even my anti-spywares are conflicting!
Sigh. I remembered the days when all the programs on my computer were compatible, and it was still quite fast. But now it's getting a little slow.
I was going to delete AVG and try to find another AV..but then AVG Safe-Search stopped me from going to a website because this particular website had malicious stuff.. and now I'm not sure if I should convert. Though AVG 8.0 is pretty bad, it does provide decent protection.
Is avast any good and should I convert?
And I would appreciate it if anyone would could answer these questions..
1) Does avast have automatic scans/updates?
2) Is avast incompatible with any programs?
3) Is the whole registrating every year in avast free a little.. annoying? Or is it worth it?
