"Had bad effect on both my computers"
Used AVG Free for some time, since version 9 I think. It provided the most effective AV cover I've had to date, very little ever got through, thats why I've given 2 stars.
Auto updates slow pc down so you can't do anything till its finished. My web pages started slowing, Yahoo mail crashed because of an add-on (but that was cured with an update), Gmail crawled - but see Summary below for what it did to my netbook.
I got a netbook in December 2009, installed AVG Free on it because thats what I had on desktop pc. Wireless connection continually dropping out, 3 times in 10 minutes not unusual, and I blamed my BT modem. The problems in Cons, above, made me try another AV. AVG wouldn't uninstall from either computer, I had to use 3rd party software to get it out. Then I installed Avast Free, and not only were the above problems solved, but surprise, surprise, my netbook stays connected all the time now. I put up with it for 16 months, if only I'd known sooner that AVG was the cause!
