    Default Getting rid of AVG

    I have spent far too long trying to uninstall AVG and all of its components, I seem to have got rid of the main AVG antivirus scanner, but there must be more components hidden somewhere, on my computer and I can't find it. Therefore I am unable to re install AVG. Damn annoying.

    I doubt sometimes whether a quiet and unagitated life would have suited me - yet I sometimes long for it.

    I used to use AVG, I found it very good until it started to get too clever for itself and slowed my computer down. I now use AVAST.
    Of course it'll fit, you just need a bigger hammer.

    Bingo!
    I just installed Avast too. It seems fine . Got rid of annoying malware.

    It's very good, Margaret. I had the 'pro' version for a while but the free one does everything most people need.

    Yes, I think shall stay with the free version. It does the job.
