I posted awhile ago asking about what Anti-Virus to buy, with AVg shutting down updates for version 7.5 early July and forcing users to upgrade to 8.0 if they want to keep their computer secure.
Well I updated to 8.0 Free anyways and noticed almost right away a significant slow down in the time it takes my computer to start up. Now, I know I don't have a fantastic machine, but it works pretty damn well usually and I do have a decent enough computer to surf, play most videos (except my video card can't handle HD stuff), and run the Sims 2 without any problems, so I don't mind. But anything that hogs memory gets put in my black book (like MegaUpload's unavoiudable and somewhat intrusive flash and pop-up ads).
Well folks, AVG Free 8.0 is out. It takes well over 2 hours to scan my computer which is almost an hour up from 7.5 and it's riddled with annoying "Upgrade to our pay shit!" notifications. Plus the aforementioned start up slowdown. What am I switching to? Avira AntiVir Personal. Free, with a rootkit scanner! Light on memory with shorter scan times too.http://www.free-av.com/en/products/1/av ... virus.html
So anyone else using 8.0 with an older computer and experiencing slowdowns?
