    "Too resource hungry for older computers."

    February 13, 2012  |   By No1Spank


    Nice interface, fast system scan.

    Good protection.


    Generally slows my laptop down and causes it to run much hotter. To get from logging in to the desktop being usable takes minutes rather than the seconds it used to take.

    AGV 2011 was bad but 2012 seems even worst.


    Very good protection and nice features but you need a powerful PC to run it without noticeable performance penalties.
