"Works great if you follow these directions:"
People have complained about slow performance and that is because avg added these new internet plugins that slow things down. If you want to install avg regularly (without all the extra new stuff), save the install file to C:.
Then, go to start > run > and type in this (with the quotes you see):
"c:\avg_free_stf_*.exe" /REMOVE_FEATURE fea_AVG_SafeSurf /REMOVE_FEATURE fea_AVG_SafeSearch
This will install avg without the safesurf and safesearch features. Note that the new anti-spyware plugin will be installed though. I figured it wouldn't hurt.
The interface is a little more fancy but gets the job done. I am running it on xp and I actually like the new version.
Hope this advice helps.
