what do you mean delete my thread...............i'm asking a perfectly honest question here !

i'm trying to get feedback from experienced pc users to decide on the best anti-virus for me.

Going to avast! forums and asking whether you should choose Avira or AVG makes zero sense. Wrt AV choice - do your own decision based on your needs.

+1 on closing this thread.

Avira: good detection rate. Poor updates, extremely annoying popups, miss a lot of configurations.
AVG: bad update scheme, poor configurability.

avast :)

exactly, it depends who you ask. And what answer do you expect when asking in avast forum   ;)

Add horrible support to that - vendor tech support absolutely not communicating, web forum unusable due to "antispam" measures, moderators playing a scratched record strategy.  :-X
