    If you’re running something newer than XP, then use Microsoft Security Essentials. XP or older, I’d use Avast

    Windows 7 = MSE
    Windows 8 = Windows Defender

    Make sure AVG is totally uninstalled first – there’s a removal tool on their website.

    AVG used to be my go to AV prog, but its got more and more bloated and more resource hungry and I havent used it for 6 years now.
    Uninstalling is a PITA as well.
    MSE would be my choice as long as you’re not using XP.

    I’ve had AVG a long time, it’s previously been fine. For over a week it’s had a new habit, it falls into a hole and drags the lappy with it.

    What alternatives are there? I really CBA to continue, despite having 18 months’ subscription still to run.

    Thanks all. AVG removed itself without dramas, and I’m trusting MS for the first time ever.

    Avast user here –

    But just of late, it’s begun to get a bit “sales happy” with its detections and offers of the full paid for package. It seems good, but going in the wrong direction.

    Bit defender, I’ve found pretty good
