"Major problem with 2012 edition"
It used to be an excellent unobtrusive anti-virus program. I've used AVG for several years with no major problems until AVG 2012.
Running latest free version on Windows 7 Home Premium, 64-bit. The scheduled scans do not run at the time programmed. Instead, they automatically start during my busiest computer time in the afternoon and cannot be shut down, even with Windows Task Manager and Sysinternals Process Explorer. It also won't allow me to lower the priority of the scan. It hogs all of my system resources while it's scanning (for over an hour), crashing my system sometimes. I've tried several fixes suggested by AVG and various tech support sites on the web - to no avail. I'm going to switch to Avast and find out why most people prefer that program.
Used to be good.
