Used to be one of my favorite AV apps in the XP, Vista and early Win 7 days but don't see much reason to fiddle with third party AV anymore having MSE running quietly in the background. To each their own though...

This thing takes forever to uninstall... seriously why does it take so long, and why does it leave so much stuff behind, when it's removal tool does a better job!?

It's like the bing toolbar, why in sam hell does that take so long to uninstall it's a FRACKING TOOLBAR!

In the case of the Bing toolbar, I blame most of it's slowness on the Windows installer, that thing need to be re written or something. Things that use the windows install typically take much longer to uninstall than ones that don't.

1. Some of those are pay versions.

2. Others (like Avast and Panda) hound you with ads to upgrade, etc.

3. And others (like Avira and Zonealarm) use a ton of resources. These 2 make my Windows 8.1 boot seem like an old XP machine.


I'm not saying AVG is some great piece of software, but for a free, non-nagging AV with decent protection, it gets my vote.
