Re: AVG and Antivirus 2008
What was your biggest problem with AVG??? other than detection, which I have
found to be very good...
AVG slowed both startup and shutdown on my machine. Evidently it was
set up to scan everything that the startup loaded and all the
shortcuts. I think the same thing happened with the shut down.
I had to disable the email scan before my email program would download
emails from my server. As long as email scanner was active, it did not
allow email download.
AVG also had popup nag screens about every 30 minutes.
Obviously, I don't know that much about AVG. Perhaps I could have
configured it to be less obtrusive if I knew what I was doing. But the
fact that it did not remove Antivirus 2008 made everything else AVG
could do a moot point with me.
